Dextrostat review





Dextrostat has the ability to stimulate the brain and central nervous system, which in turn increases the amount of chemicals in the body. It is also an appetite suppressant and stimulant that increases the patients heart rate and blood pressure to promote weight loss. Dextrostat is used in treating patients with Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (ADHD) because it improves concentration, decrease sensory over stimulation, improve impulse control, decrease anxiety and decrease irritability. Patients with narcolepsy and other forms of sleep disorders can also benefit from Dextrostat. It is also effective when used along with anti-depressants to treat acute cases of depression. Using a lower dosage, patients who are overweight may use Dextrostat to promote weight loss.

The suggested dosage will depend on what the medication is being used to treat, among other things. For narcolepsy patients, especially adults, dosage ranges from 5 to 60mg per day, which is usually taken as two small doses. Children 6 to 12 years of age are advised to take 5mg a day, while those over 12 years old take 10mg a day. The typical dosage for patients suffering from obesity is 5 to 30mg in divided doses, taken an hour and a half before each meal. ADHD patients are usually prescribed 5mg per day for those age 6 years old and older. Most often, the dosage is half that for children under 6 years old being treated for ADHD.

Side effects include increased heart rate and blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, dizziness, insomnia, headache, restlessness, shakiness, dry mouth with a metallic taste (said to be one of the reason for appetite loss), diarrhea, constipation, and weight loss. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult with your healthcare professional immediately.

Always take your medication exactly as prescribed. Higher does of Dextrostat may cause a change in a person's sex drive, allergic reactions, chills, depression, irritability or mood swings, and problems with the digestive system. Higher doses are also said to cause addiction, aggression, dependence, and a series of psychotic episodes that may well prove to be a danger to the patient and those around them. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult with your healthcare professional immediately.

Consult your healthcare professional before taking Dextrostat. Over-the-counter medications may have a negative interaction with Dextrostat, which can be fatal to the patient. Cold medications should not be taken with Dextrostat. Other medications that have a negative interaction with Dextrostat include antacids, furoxone, sodium bicarbonate, and other medications that control high-blood pressure. Make certain your healthcare professional is aware of all prescription and non-prescription medications you are taking prior to taking Dextrostat.

Do not immediately stop taking this medication. Follow your prescription and healthcare professional’s instructions to slowly decrease the dosage. Do not take Dextrostat in the evenings because it may affect your normal sleep patterns. Also avoid taking it prior to participating in hazardous activities, like driving or extreme sports.
