Methamphetamine is a medication that can be prescribed for short-term obesity treatment and the treatment of ADHD. When taken in doses intended for ADHD treatment, methamphetamine can affect chemicals in the brain to produce a calming effect. The medication can also increase metabolism and suppress appetite for a period of a few weeks, helping people lose weight. Side effects that may occur in people taking methamphetamine most commonly include things such as high blood pressure, headache, and dry mouth. Methamphetamine is a drug that is often addicting; it is also frequently abused. Therefore, it is classified as a controlled substance, meaning that there are special rules concerning how it may be prescribed.
