Zinc / Dexedrine Spansules/ (Mamentine??)

Posted by rjlockhart04-08 on October 14, 2008, at 10:30:18

Howdy folks,

Currently still on 2 15mg Spansules in morning, lasts 6-8 hours depending. The dose is not at correct stable point, i'm going in tommorow to see my psychiatrist. Well all i know is the the correct dose, will be a correct treatment. I dont know, if it's 2 spauslues in morning/ 2 spansules in afternoon? 3 spanusles in morning/ 3 spansules in afternoon.....it just depends on patients, but the dose isnt working, but of course the "drop off" at around 3pm or 5pm always happens.

I read Zinc is good, but does it help with Cognition? And Mamentine..its a cognitive enhancer, i read. Not a stimulant, help with thinking.

Apologize, I should support and talk about meds with others. But, i would just like some advice. About Zinc, and the getting on the correct dose of Spansules (current 30mg)

Thanks...my writing has improved so much over the last 4 years. So, i hope i put everything is "absolutly" understantable.

The maximum dose is 60mg/day for dexedrine. Generally, doses above 40mg/day are not more effective for ADHD.

I hope your appointment goes well and that you're able to work out the dosing so you don't have the crash in the evening.

Thanks....listen, the next session, its going to be increased to 4 spansules, this time 2 morning, 2 afternoon, so it will maybe avoid the "drop off" period which is very miserable to go through.

How many mg of dextroamphetmaine is being released? in a time frame at 45mg Spansules?

Thanks

rj

Thanks for the compliment Philipa. I don't work in the field, but I do have access to much of the research and find it quite interesting.
