Healthcare providers may prescribe methamphetamine hydrochloride (Desoxyn®) to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The medication may also be used as a short-term treatment for obesity, as it can help suppress the appetite and increase metabolism. Methamphetamine comes in tablet form and is available in one strength only. You should talk to your healthcare provider before using this drug if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
