How Should Dextroamphetamine Be Stored?

Dextroamphetamine should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture or heat. Both tablets and extended-release capsules 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 dextroamphetamine as scheduled, take your missed 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 this medication late in the evening can cause trouble sleeping at night. Do not take a double dose.
 

Who Makes the Medication?

Dexedrine is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline Corporation. Generic versions are made by several manufacturers.
