Methamfetamin

Were you looking for information about Methamphetamine? Methamfetamin is a common misspelling of methamphetamine.
 
Methamphetamine hydrochloride (Desoxyn®) is a prescription medication often used for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It can also be used as a short-term treatment for obesity. The drug works for ADHD by producing a calming effect and for weight loss by suppressing the appetite and increasing the metabolism. While most people tolerate methamphetamine well, potential side effects include high blood pressure, restlessness, and insomnia. Since this drug is a type of amphetamine, it has the potential to be abused.
