Weird side effect from dexedrine?

Posted by BLPBart on June 21, 2002, at 13:06:35

I have been taking dexedrine spansules (40 mg/day) since January for depression and ADD (the kind that Fachad describes as attention deficity hypoactivity disorder). I also take 300 mg/day wellbutrin SR. I've been doing great on this combo and then a couple of weeks ago a strange thing happened and I don't know if it's attributable to the meds or if it's totally unrelated like allergies.

Out of the blue one day about 2 weeks ago, I started having this weird problem with what seemed like excessive post nasal drip. Added to that, my throat felt weird, almost like it was a little constricted. This made me have a constant urge to swallow which then caused me to feel sick to my stomach from all of the post nasal drip (I really apologize to anyone that's getting totally grossed out). For whatever reason I attributed this to the dex even though it had never happened before. I tried experimenting to see if it happened if I didn't take or, or took a lower dose. So far, I haven't really been able to establish a pattern except that it starts in the late morning to afternoon and often lasts until late at night, although it always seems to be gone in the morning.

I do suffer from mild allergies so I take claritin before going to bed at night and also use a nasal spray. I don't know if this is just a weird allergy thing and has nothing to do with my medications, or if this is a severe reaction to my medications that I should be calling my doctor about.

Anyone have any ideas?
