How Should Dexedrine Be Stored?

Dexedrine should be stored at in room temperature, away from moisture or heat. Both tablets and Spansules should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Dexedrine as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. If you do not remember until late in the evening, skip the dose. Taking the medication late in the evening can cause trouble sleeping at night. Do not take a double dose.
