Amphetamine Addiction

Amphetamines are a psychostimulant drug of the phenethylamine class that is known to produce increased wakefulness and focus in association with decreased fatigue and appetite.

Amphetmine is chemically related to methamphetamine and lisdexamfetamine, a class of potent drugs that act by increasing levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, inducing euphoria. The class includes prescription CNS drugs commonly used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

It is also used to treat symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the daytime drowsiness symptoms of narcolepsy, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Initially, amphetamines were more popularly used to diminish appetite and control weight.

Prescription Amphetamine Addiction

Brand names of the medications that contain or metabolize into amphetamine include “Adderall,” “Dexedrine,” “Dextrostat,” “Desoxyn,” “ProCentra,” “Vyvanse,” and “Benzedrine”.
The drug is also used recreationally and as a performance enhancer. Recreational users of amphetamine have coined numerous street names for amphetamine, such as “speed.”
