Dextroamphetamine sulfate is a Schedule II controlled substance. Amphetamines have been extensively abused. Tolerance, extreme psychological dependence and severe social disability have occurred. There are reports of patients who have increased the dosage to many times that recommended. Abrupt cessation following prolonged high dosage administration results in extreme fatigue and mental depression. The most severe manifestation of chronic intoxication is psychosis, often clinically indistinguishable from schizophrenia.
Long-term effects of amphetamines in pediatric patients have not been well established.
Data are inadequate to determine whether chronic administration of amphetamines may be associated with growth inhibition.

Liquadd (dextroamphetamine sulfate) is a colorless, bubblegum flavored oral solution. Each teaspoonful (5 mL) of Liquadd (dextroamphetamine sulfate) Oral Solution contains 5 mg of dextroamphetamine sulfate. Inactive ingredients consist of benzoic acid, citric acid anhydrous, purified water, sodium citrate hydrous, sodium saccharin, sorbitol solution, and artificial bubble gum flavor.

Historical footnote:
Stimulants such as methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, etc.) and amphetamine (Adderall, Dexedrine, Vyvanse, etc.) have been administered to millions of American children over the past forty years, but the FDA (annual budget: $2 billion), the Centers for Disease Control (annual budget: $9 billion), and the National Institute for Health (annual budget: $29 billion) have never conducted serious long-term studies to monitor the safety of stimulants in children -- such studies would not suit the needs of the pharmaceutical industry.
