Desoxyn® is a medication that can be used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obesity. The prescription medicine can help people lose weight by suppressing appetite and boosting metabolism, and it can produce a calming effect on people with ADHD by affecting certain chemicals in the brain. When it comes to treatment of ADHD, the medication is approved for use in children six years of age and older; for obesity, it may be used in people 12 years old and older. Side effects of Desoxyn may include headache, dry mouth, and restlessness. Because Desoxyn is an amphetamine and is commonly abused, there are special rules for prescribing it.
