> Very few doc's use Desoxyn as the methyl version of amphetamine is often abused. As Desoxyn is a long acting amphetamine it does not need to be in a time release formaulation. As Dexadrine is very sucessful with most people with ADD there seems little reason to go to the stronger Desoxyn. Methamphetamine is more addictive than amphetamine. There is some indication that the subsituted amphetamines are more neurotoxic.

All amphetamines have the potential for abuse, not just the "methyl version." Also, it is no
more addicting than Dexedrine, Biphetamine or Obetrol, which has been renamed, and remarketed,
as Adderall.
If availability is factored into this "potential for abuse" formula, then Dexedrine, as well
as Ritalin, would set the standard for this unfortunate phenomenon.
Desoxyn is nothing more than an ephedrine/amphetamine mix (desoxyephedrine).
Desoxyn is time-released via its "gradumet" form.
Just what are "subsituted amphetamines"?
The reason why doctors choose not to use Desoxyn is because they don't want the DEA
on their backs. The drug has been stigmatized since the 1960s.
IMHO, the DEA, as well as the FDA, should both take a hike until their hats float.
