Hello, I want to ask whether Dexamphetamine is available in Indonesia? I am 19 and have an adhd and now use concerta (2 x 18mg) but it doesn’t work.

1 Answer:

Hello Nandana,


Of course, before determining the right medicine Nandana must consult a psychiatrist. There are 5 types of drugs that can be used in ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder), namely methylphenidate, dexamfetamine, lisdexamfetamine, atomoxetine, and guanfacine. Usually for teens over 6 years the psychiatrist will give methylphenidate, as given by your psychiatrist. If it is not suitable, you can replace it with dexamphetamine or other classes. If the group is not available, it can be replaced with other drugs.


At the moment Nandana can continue the drugs given, because of course the effect is not instant. But if Nandana feels unsuitable for the medicine, don't hesitate to consult Nandana's psychiatrist and discuss the replacement of this drug. Do not change the drug or stop the drug without the knowledge of the psychiatrist.
