Hi, I have a problem with my 13 year old son. Ever since he was little he had trouble concentrating and he was hyperactive. I didn’t notice it at first because I thought it was just the way the kids are but later as he got to school there were problems in his studying and concentration in the class. I have decided to ask for medical assistance to try to solve this problem and if possible treat it. The doctor has recommended few medicines, one of them is Dexidrine. I would like to know what kind of a drug is that and what are the possible side effects of use?
