Dextrostat, a prescription stimulant used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is the brand name for dextroamphetamine. Dextrostat treats symptoms of ADHD by controlling impulsive behavior and hyperactivity, improving a person’s ability to focus, concentrate and retain information. Because of Dextrostat’s stimulating effects, this drug is often sought after by high school and college students as a “study drug.” Another effect of Dextrostat is its suppression of appetite, making it popular amongst people trying to lose weight.

If someone has ADHD and is taking Dextrostat, the medication improves their mental performance and corrects social behavior, allowing their brain to operate at a normal level. When a person without ADHD takes Dextrostat, it produces a strong psychostimulant effect because their brain is already operating at a normal level. Dextrostat prevents the absorption of certain chemicals in a person’s brain, so long-term use of this substance can make it difficult for their brain to naturally produce these chemicals and can lead to misuse and addiction.

Misuse of Dextrostat often occurs when someone begins taking a higher dosage each time to counteract their tolerance and changing how the drug is administered, like crushing and snorting it to produce a euphoric effect.

Someone taking Dextrostat will likely experience a few side effects. Each side effect is different for a person, as some may never occur while others have a stronger effect. These common side effects include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Dry mouth
  • Restlessness
  • Dizziness
  • Nervousness

A person can take Dextrostat without becoming addicted. Carefully following the directions from a doctor greatly lowers the risk of addiction. Whether a person is taking Dextrostat for medical purposes or recreationally, a tolerance for the drug is still possible. If someone is addicted to Dextrostat, they might display certain behaviors. These behaviors often include:

  • No interest in food, causing severe weight loss and malnutrition
  • Tremors
  • Mood swings
  • Aggressive behavior if Dextrostat is not avalilable
  • Paranoia
  • Constantly seeking Dextrostat
  • Hallucinations
  • Decreased interest in hobbies and other aspects of life
  • Withdrawal symptoms occur

If you or a loved one is showing signs of Dextrostat misuse and addiction, seeking the help of a medical professional is the safest route for recovery.

Detoxification is often the first part of recovery, and it is highly recommended to detox under medical supervision. If a person struggling with addiction attempts to detox alone, it can be dangerous and harmful.

As mentioned, misuse and long-term use of Dextrostat makes it difficult for a person’s brain to naturally secrete neurotransmitters without the presence of the drug. To avoid recurring use and lessen the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, finding a detox program can help a person remain substance-free.

Dextrostat Addiction Treatment And Rehab
The Recovery Village has great programs for a safe detox and a fun, supportive rehabilitation. Our programs start with a patient assessment to determine which treatment program is right for them and will meet their needs. Once a person struggling with substance use disorder begins to detox, our team will provide support and medication while Dextrostat is leaving their body.

After successful detox, we begin group and individual therapy sessions. Our team also addresses any co-occurring mental health disorders.

The Recovery Village offers inpatient rehab for people recovering from a severe Dextrostat addiction. This program removes patients from temptation and provides counseling and access to medication for withdrawal symptoms. Receiving full-time care can make a big difference on the road to recovery. Inpatient programs offer individual and group therapy. These sessions will help patients determine the cause of their Dextrostat addiction as well as teach them how to deal with everyday stressors that can lead to recurring use so they may continue their recovery.
Outpatient rehab programs are different from inpatient programs. Patients will not stay at a recovery center, but they will return for scheduled Dextrostat treatment and offer therapy sessions. Outpatient programs are recommended after inpatient treatment, although some people choose outpatient rehab as a first option if their addiction is not as severe.
The Recovery Village offers Dextrostat treatment programs across the country and each rehab center is dedicated to your long-term recovery and health. We make sure all of our patients are comfortable during recovery and we strive to meet their individual needs. To start the road to recovery, call our toll-free 24/7 hotline to speak with a representative and find a center closest to you at 855-548-9825.
