Dextrostat is a medication given to patients to help with their attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD. The medication can also be beneficial for patients who suffer from sleep disorders such as narcolepsy.

Dextrostat is an effective medication for ADHD patients because it is a stimulant and because it can balance out the naturally occurring neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. Beginning treatment with Dextrostat can help patients by improving their attention span, ability to stay focused, organizational skills, listening skills and ability to control any behavioral problems they may have.

Just like starting any medication, Dextrostat treatment may come with certain side effects. Common Dextrostat side effects include nausea, upset stomach, cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dry mouth, headache, nervousness, dizziness, trouble sleeping, sweating, weight loss, irritability and restlessness. Let your doctor know if any of these Dextrostat side effects persist or worsen over time. Although they are uncommon, some Dextrostat patients experience serious side effects from the medication. Serious Dextrostat side effects are signs of blood flow problems in the fingers or toes, unusual wounds on the fingers or toes, agitation, aggression, mood swings, depression, hallucinations, abnormal thoughts or behaviors, thoughts of suicide, uncontrolled movements, muscle twitching, outbursts of words or sounds, change in sexual interest, swelling ankles or feet, extreme tiredness, significant unexplained weight loss and frequent or prolonged erections in males. Tell your doctor as soon as possible if you notice any of these symptoms.

Get medical attention as soon as possible if you notice the following severe Dextrostat side effects: shortness of breath, pain in the chest or left arm, severe headache, fainting, fast or irregular heartbeat, seizures, weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech, confusion or blurred vision.

What Is Dextrostat?
Consult your doctor before you try to discontinue your Dextrostat treatment. Your Dextrostat dosage levels and treatment schedule should never be adjusted unless your doctor tells you to. If you are no longer interested in taking Dextrostat, your doctor will most likely taper off your dose over time so your body can adjust accordingly.
Common Dextrostat withdrawal symptoms include depressed mood, low energy, anxiety, paranoia, problems concentrating, sleep changes, increased appetite and headaches. The safest way to avoid serious Dextrostat withdrawal symptoms is to gradually lower your Dextrostat dose over time under your doctor’s supervision.
Dextrostat Withdrawal Timeline And Symptom Durations
The Dextrostat withdrawal timeline is different for everyone due to every patient’s unique physiology. Many factors influence how long Dextrostat will stay in your system such as your age, metabolism, organ function, how long you have been taking Dextrostat, your Dextrostat dosage levels and whether you decided to taper off your Dextrostat treatment or stop cold turkey.
If you are having trouble managing Dextrostat withdrawal symptoms, you may want to consider seeking a medically assisted detoxification program. In this type of program, patients can safely detox from Dextrostat while medical professionals teach them coping skills on how to handle their unique Dextrostat withdrawal issues. Remember, every patient experiences Dextrostat withdrawal differently. Do not be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
Make sure you keep an updated list of all your current medications, as well as any herbal products or over the counter drugs you may take, as these can interact with Dextrostat and influence the effectiveness of the medication.

Specifically, MAO inhibitors should be avoided if you are taking Dextrostat as these can cause a serious and possibly fatal interaction. Specifically, you should avoid the following MAO inhibitors if you are a Dextrostat patient: isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline and tranylcypromine.

Choosing a Dextrostat center that is right for you is an important step on your recovery journey. Set up a meeting with your doctor to discuss what you should look for in a Dextrostat center. You may want to consider how long you have been taking Dextrostat as well as your Dextrostat dosage levels when making this important decision.
