Dexedrine Without a Prescription
While it is possible to obtain Dexedrine without a prescription, it is illegal to do so. Dexedrine is a controlled substance, and there are strict rules for prescribing it and penalties for using it without a prescription. Not only is it illegal to use Dexedrine without a prescription, it may also be unsafe to do so. For example, there are many people who should not take Dexedrine for various medical reasons; the drug should always be used under a doctor's supervision.
Dexedrine® (dextroamphetamine sulfate) is a prescription medication approved for treating ADHD and narcolepsy. However, it is also a commonly abused medication. Because Dexedrine is a controlled substance, there are strict rules for obtaining it, and there are fines and penalties for using or trying to obtain Dexedrine without a prescription.
Sadly, the answer is yes, you can. However, it is not legal to do so. Dexedrine is to be dispensed only to people with a prescription and only for a legitimate medical purpose. It is illegal to obtain Dexedrine without a prescription, and it is illegal to sell or give your Dexedrine to someone else. Doing any of these things is against federal (and most state) laws, and you can be prosecuted under both federal and state laws.
Clearly, the correct answer is no, you should not get Dexedrine without a prescription. Unfortunately, certain circumstances may make the answer to this question seem less cut and dried.
For instance, consider the following questions:
- If you are abusing an illegal street drug, should you switch to Dexedrine for safety reasons?
- Should you buy Dexedrine without a prescription to get you through a short period of time when you need a little extra help (or need to lose a little extra weight)?
- Should you take Dexedrine without a prescription, even if you follow all the directions and do not take more than you should?
However, the answer to these questions is still "no." Not only is it illegal to use or buy Dexedrine without a prescription, it can also be dangerous. Just because Dexedrine is a prescription medication does not mean it is safe for everyone. There are many people who should not take Dexedrine for various medical reasons, and Dexedrine should always be used under a healthcare provider's supervision.
