Side Effects of DexedrineAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Dexedrine. However, not everyone who takes it will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate the drug well. If side effects do occur, they are often minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
The most common side effects include:
- Overstimulation, restlessness, or insomnia
- Dry mouth
- Unpleasant taste
- Loss of appetite and decreased eating
- Weight loss (see Dexedrine and Weight Loss)
- Erectile dysfunction (ED or impotence) or changes in sex drive (see Dexedrine Sexual Side Effects).
Dexedrine can cause high blood pressure. Usually, this increase in blood pressure is temporary and does not cause any problems. The medication can also increase the chance of seizures and can make certain heart conditions and mental problems worse.
