Looking for a place to help you find medical relief? Mango Clinic Miami is here to provide patients both local and remote with medical services ranging from emotional support animal letters to prescription medication. Mango Clinic can help you get a prescription to Strattera from our licensed doctors, who can evaluate your situation and decide if you properly qualify. All patients are different and have their own unique situations to contend with, so we make sure each patient is treated with care. We also want to make sure patients understand the benefits and risks associated with drugs such as Strattera.

Who Is Strattera For?

Strattera is primarily used for treating ADHD, a disorder that affects many who may have had it all their lives or only started recently getting symptoms. For someone with ADHD, it can be challenging to get through the day, especially if you have work and are engaging with various people. ADHD causes a person to be easily distracted in a way they cannot control, and this is the sort of thing that can cause a person’s work to suffer. Especially under work conditions, ADHD is not something that is necessarily only affecting one person.

Outside of work, a person with ADHD might find it hard to stay focused with friends and family. They might not want to engage with friends because they know they will not be able to dedicate the right amount of time when participating with others. Because of this, they may prefer to spend time alone, but even then, they can become frustrated by their behavior. ADHD is something that is highly detrimental to one’s health, and sometimes those with the disorder do not want to admit it. This is not something anyone ever has to deal with alone, but it can be difficult. This is why drugs like Strattera exist: so that users can take control of their life and get back to feeling better about themselves and their situations.

How Does Strattera Work?

By responsibly taking Strattera, a user will be able to get back to living a more productive life, while also being able to engage with others. The drug is able to help the brain get back to a point where it is able to maintain focus and help the user stay alert. A brain under ADHD is unable to satisfy a need for activity; this is what causes a person with the disorder to be so distracted, as the brain is desperately looking for ways to stay distracted. Due to its inability to be satisfied, the mind causes the person to stay unfocused, resulting in frustration. Strattera is able to help the brain make sure it is being stimulated, which can help the brain work with neurotransmitters that allow the mind to remain calm and focused. This then helps make the user stay concentrated, focused, and alert.

Strattera Side-Effects

Strattera is an effective prescription drug, as it has been shown to be helpful for those with ADHD. However, for those interested in being prescribed Strattera, it is also important to understand the side-effects that are involved. Side-effects are fairly common with prescription drugs, and even though many know this, it is always important to understand what they are.

As with other prescription drugs, some of these side-effects are more common than others, so we will start with the most common :

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth

These are among the most reported, which should not come as too much of a surprise, considering how prescription drugs can sometimes make users feel.

Some of the others include :

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Appetite loss

which can be less reported but just as likely.

Among the least common side-effects are

  • Dizziness
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation

It is always important to remember that, as unlikely as some of these side-effects can appear, they are still probable. There are also, of course, much less common side-effects that have been known to affect at least a small portion of those who have taken Strattera. These can include palpitations, migraines, liver problems, fainting, and thoughts of suicide. While some of these can be much more serious than other common side-effects, it is important to remember that they are quite rare.

Other Strattera Risks

Some risks that are not widely advertised are related to tolerance and dependence, which can lead to addiction and overdose. Drugs such as Strattera can be easily abused, which can lead to the previously mentioned side-effects but can also lead to tolerance. If your body becomes tolerant to the drugs you’re taking, you may feel a need to increase your dosage. This can lead to you becoming more dependent on the medicine, which can turn into a flown blown attention for some.

Strattera (Atomoxetine) – General Dosing Information

From there, if you really go overboard, it can result in taking so many pills that you overdose. This is a serious problem that affects a percentage of those who have taken prescription pills in the past. For these reasons, it is vital not to become addicted to your prescription medication. This is also why it is not recommended that those with addictive personalities, or who have a history of addiction, take Strattera or similar medication.

While Strattera can be extremely beneficial for those with ADHD, it can also be easy to abuse if you are not careful. For these reasons, it is important that you take care of yourself and take your medication responsibly if you decide to go through with getting prescribed.

If you would like to be prescribed Strattera, you can make an appointment to speak directly with a licensed doctor, courtesy of Mango Clinic. Our professional staff is highly trained and understands your needs; they will evaluate your situation, help you understand what it all means, and whether Strattera is right for you. There has never been a better time for being prescribed medication that can change your life for the better. Make your appointment by calling us or visiting our appointment webpage.

quillivant-2.jpg

Mango Clinic Miami is open to both South Florida locals and remote patients across the country. We are here to help people looking for relief via a variety of means, including Quillivant, a methylphenidate which can help all sorts of people. With this prescription medication, people are able to live their lives in a way that is both healthy and beneficial.

Who Is Quillivant For?

The pressures of life can lead some people not to be as healthy as they ought to. Sometimes things happen to us, and we do not notice the effects until later; by the time we notice, we may be accustomed to whatever is happening to us. Specific ailments can be with us all our lives, and we just learn to live with them, regardless of how they affect our quality of life. Other times things begin to happen in our lives that we are unsure how to handle, resulting in us feeling frustrated, and at times, frightened of what is happening. While it can be unwanted stress, it can sometimes be a disorder that we do not realize is a part of us. Even if we do recognize something is wrong, it can be hard for us to accept that, or admit that there is something in need of treatment.

Quillivant for ADHD

Among the disorders that can be treated with Quillivant is ADHD, which can be part of a person their whole lives, or it can show up later in their life. Those with ADHD are prone to feeling frustrated over feeling more agitated than usual, highly unfocused, and lacking in concentration. You might be paying attention to one thing, and then quickly turning your attention to something else, again and again. It can be highly problematic for the person with ADHD or adult ADHD, but it can also be disruptive for other people, such as coworkers and family members.

Quillivant for Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is another disorder that can be treated with Quillivant. While not as common as ADHD, narcolepsy is a severe problem for those who have it, as it leaves them exhausted throughout the day. In addition to feeling sleepy most of the time and desperately wanting to sleep, one with narcolepsy could actually fall asleep during their regular waking hours. This is something that could happen any time, even if you are engaging in what would typically be classified as an energetic activity. This means that someone with this disorder could fall asleep during a business meeting just as easily as if they were attending a party.

Thankfully, drugs like Quillivant are ideally met to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. However, you do not have to exclusively have either of these disorders to be prescribed the medication. Those who have similar ailments related to anxiety and stress are able to be prescribed, so long as they go through the legal means of being evaluated by a licensed doctor.

How Does Quillivant Work?

A reason why Quillivant can be widely prescribed comes from how it works on the body. For those who are looking to get a prescription drug of this type, their brain is acting unusual. What is going is that the brain is desperately seeking activity that it is unable to satisfy; this is why those with ADHD cannot stay focused. When your brain seems to be looking for something new all of the time, it’s because there is something wrong that is causing it to be perpetually unsatisfied. Quillivant helps the brain release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that allows the brain to go back to normal. What releasing dopamine does is give the brain the activity it was so badly seeking; by stimulating the brain, the user is now able to be focused again.

Among the many who could benefit from Quillivant are college students, who are known to take methylphenidate for its cognitive enhancement. Since school can be extremely stressful for many students, taking drugs like Quillivant allows them to stay focused and concentrated on their studies in a way they may not have otherwise. Thanks to these prescription drugs, students are able to keep their concentration and stay alert when studying and meeting deadlines, among other things. A high percentage of students who take methylphenidates are taking it legitimately, too, as the effects are highly beneficial to their studies.

Quillivant Risks and Side-Effects

For all the benefits one can receive from such drugs, it is always important to understand the risks involved.

Common side-effects

  • Dry mouth
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea

Psychological side-effects

There are also psychological effects, such as

  • Delusions
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of self-confidence

Some of these psychological side-effects can be just as damaging as the physical, as an unhealthy mind can do a lot of damage for people already dealing with these disorders.

Quillivant Overdose and Addiction

It is also important for a person taking Quillivant not to let their body become tolerant of the drug. What this means is that the user has taken so much of the drug in question that their body is no longer feeling the effects. This can also lead to dependence, as the user will find themselves needing to take the drug frequently, which can be terribly damaging to the mind and body. All of this can lead to the worst-case scenario of overdosing, which is something that happens with users of prescription drugs. Those who do not take their prescription meds responsibly can find themselves in a situation where they might overdose, especially if they become tolerant and dependent.

For all the risks involved, Quillivant is still a very beneficial drug for so many with ADHD, narcolepsy, and other related ailments. It can be a great help for people with similar symptoms who want to lead a more healthy and regular lifestyle. If you would like to be prescribed Quillivant or a similar drug, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Visit our website to schedule your appointment with one of our licensed physicians.

ADDERALL1-1.jpg

What Are Stimulants?

Mango Clinic Miami provides health services for patients who are looking for prescription medication amphetamines such as Adderall. Our staff of medical professionals understands that everyone has individual needs, and we make sure they are met to full satisfaction. If you are interested in stimulants such as Adderall, make sure you understand the reasons for being prescribed, the benefits, and risks involved.
In a busy and stressful life, it can be beneficial to have something to keep us going. Many people who do not think they have any ailment or do not have a disorder may still benefit from seeing a medical professional about their health. Even if everything seems fine, underlying issues, whether admitted or not, can be preventing a person from living a better life. Some of these people might be feeling anxiety and overstress which can cause them to exhibit symptoms associated with specific disorders.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is among these disorders, which prevents people from being as focused as they could be. This disorder can be present in individuals for many years in childhood, or it can become a more significant problem when they reach adulthood. Sometimes a person may not realize they have symptoms associated with ADHD, or they have lived with it for so long that they would rather not treat it. In any case, whether minor or severe, a person with ADHD can take stimulants such as Adderall for treatment.

What Is Adderall?

Adderall can treat a wide variety of ailments, so do not think you are excluded if you do not have ADHD. Aside from other severe cases such as narcolepsy and obesity, a patient can be prescribed Adderall if they qualify under certain conditions. If you are feeling stressed and unfocused, and if that stress and lack of focus are ruining your daily life in some way, you can qualify.
You can speak with a licensed doctor about being prescribed the medication. After an evaluation, you and your doctor will come to a decision that will work best for you. You can choose from different types of amphetamine drugs, including Adderall, which is among the most well-known amphetamines.

Adderall ADHD Stats
Adderall ADHD Statistics 2020

How Does Adderall Work?

The way stimulants like Adderall work is by going to your brain and helping release dopamine. The name “stimulants” gives away the primary process of the drug, which is to stimulate the brain, which helps release dopamine into the body. This is important because the cause of the stress or ADHD symptoms usually stems from your brain not having enough activity, which then makes you much more restless. Without an active mind, you will be unable to focus properly, as your brain will be in desperate need of stimulation.
As contradictory as it may seem, it’s the stimulated activity that allows the brain to regain focus. Instead of being distracted and unfocused, Adderall will make you alert and sharp, with increased focus and concentration. The drug’s ability to make patients more alert and focused is a big part of why people, such as college students, who deal with their own type of stress, become so interested in it. As long as you meet the conditions that make it legal to be prescribed stimulants, you should be able to get them with the help of your local and licensed physician.

Adderall Types

Adderall comes in a couple of variations, specifically

  • IR (immediate-release): IR works quickly, but it only lasts for a few hours, meaning you have to take it multiple times throughout the day.
  • XR (extended-release):   XR instead takes a bit of time to get working, but lasts for usually half of a day; this means XR is meant to only be taken once per day or every 12 hours

The differences have to do with how long the drug will last per dose, and this also varies by individual dosage from patient to patient.

Side-Effects of Adderall

ADDERALL SIDE EFFECTS
Adderall abuse and side effects

While Adderall can keep you alert and provide you with higher concentration, you should still be alert to the dangers associated with prescription drugs. Whether it’s stimulants or something else, these drugs can be a problem if you do not take them responsibly. Some of the common side-effects can include increased heart rate and hypertension, which causes a patient to feel worse than they already did. This is especially an issue since drugs like Adderall are designed to reduce stress and anxiety, making such effects highly unwanted and problematic.
Some other side-effects associated with stimulants include

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
  • Muscle contractions.

Psychological Effects

In addition to physical effects, stimulants are also known to provide psychological problems as well, possibly. One of the most common is being too alert, which can cause a person to be overly active and unable to be still. This can also result in a person getting insomnia, which might be a reason why many do not recommend taking stimulants before going to bed.
Anxiety, issues with libido, and delusions can also be part of the side-effects of taking an amphetamine.

Causing Dependency And Addiction

One other issue that is not always stated has to do with dependence and tolerance. Stimulants, like other prescription drugs, can be easily abused by patients, resulting in dependence and addiction. The body can become quite used to the drugs being taken, especially if you take too many in too short of time, which might encourage a patient to increase their dose. While increasing your dose is fine and something you can do, it can be a problem in some cases. Patients who have addictive personalities might be recommended not to take stimulants and other prescription drugs for these very reasons.

Adderall can be a very helpful stimulant for many patients, but it is always important to understand exactly what the drug does and the possible side-effects involved. If you are interested in getting prescribed, then make an appointment with Mango Clinic. Our licensed doctors can help you understand the drug options available to you, the pros and cons, and which ones would be best for your individual circumstances. Mango Clinic understands that everyone has a different medical history, and we want to make sure you get the absolute best treatment possible.

Ritalin-for-ADHD.jpg

What Is Ritalin and Who Is It For?

Ritalin (a brand name for methylphenidate) is primarily for patients who have ADHD or narcolepsy, two disorders that can be treated with stimulants. For those with ADHD, they have issues such as restlessness and being unable to focus, which can prevent them from doing work or maintaining relationships. It can also be disruptive, in case it gets in the way of things such as work and social events. Luckily, Ritalin has proven to significantly help those with ADHD, as it treats and improves their symptoms for the better.

Narcolepsy is the other main disorder that Ritalin is recommended for treating. This disorder can leave a person exhausted throughout the day, wanting to sleep all the time, and in some cases, falling asleep where it can be least appropriate (like during a meeting). Ritalin has been proven to help those with narcolepsy, as it treats the symptoms associated and allows the user to remain more productive throughout the day.

What Are Stimulants?

If you are looking for a stimulant such as Ritalin to help improve your health, then get in touch with Mango Clinic Miami. Helping local and remote patients alike, we provide health services that let people live their best life in a relaxed and accessible way. Ritalin can help patients with ADHD and narcolepsy who want to treat symptoms that range from minor to severe. As a legal prescription drug that can be prescribed to many people, Ritalin comes with various benefits, along with risks and side-effects, that are important to know.

With the stress of life almost always hanging over us, it can be difficult for some to stay concentrated and focused on the things that matter most to us. Sometimes things get in the way, whether they are physical obstructions or mental roadblocks. Certain people even have disorders that prevent them from being the best version of themselves. Sometimes they admit to having these disorders, other times they have denied them for years. The issues individuals have will always vary, and there are always optimal solutions for treating them.

ADHD Treatment: Ritalin
Ritalin (methylphenidate) is a synthetic central nervous system stimulant

How Does Ritalin Work?

You might be curious to know how a stimulant such as Ritalin is able to help those with ADHD and narcolepsy. While we do not have to get too in-depth, the main components involve our brains and its neurotransmitters. Those asking to get Ritalin often have a brain that is looking for an activity and is lacking it for whatever reason. The stimulant goes to the brain’s reward center and gets it to release dopamine, which provides stimulation in the brain, which makes it active.

Like most other stimulants, you do not have to be suffering from ADHD or narcolepsy in order to take Ritalin. As a legal and prescribable drug, it has found itself as a popular choice for many who suffer from stress (only based on anecdotal reports) and lack of concentration. Students, in particular, have found themselves as users of this medication, as it has been shown to help with focus and alert thinking. While some may think much of this has to do with recreational use, it has been shown that students who take methylphenidate are genuinely interested in performance enhancement. Unlike Concerta, which is also methylphenidate and its extended-release variation, Ritalin starts working almost immediately and only works for a few hours so you can take it later in the day without any fear of insomnia as a side effect.

Ritalin Risks

While drugs like Ritalin provide users with beneficial effects that improve their health, there are still risks involved. Medication already comes with side-effects, so this is not surprising; in any case, it is still important for users to know of these effects. Some of these physical effects can include hypertension, nausea, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, and blurry vision. These are just a few of the many side-effects that can occur if you take Ritalin, though many of them are not that common, with some of the most severe ones being extremely rare.

Ritalin Side-Effects

Don’t wait! Call us today!

Aside from common physical symptoms, side-effects can also be psychological, which can sometimes be an even greater problem than physical symptoms. Anxiety and insomnia are, ironically, some of the common psychological effects that a user of Ritalin can endure. It’s also possible that a user can have a greater sense of alertness than is normal, which might make them even more restless than before they took the medication. Users may also find their libidos and self-confidence diminish, which can be a problem that does not improve matters for someone being treated with Ritalin.

In addition to side-effects, stimulants have a chance of being abused by users, which can then lead to tolerance, dependence, and even overdosing. Tolerance can happen because a user takes too much of their dosage, and their body has become accustomed to it. While it might make sense to increase your dosage if this happens, it can be problematic if the user exhibits dependent traits. If increasing the dosage would only worsen the conditions of the user and their drug use, then it is not recommended and should stop immediately taking the drug.

Dependence can sometimes contribute to tolerance, which can make the treatment process with Ritalin more harmful than helpful. It also has ties with addiction, which is essentially what happens to those who abuse their prescriptions and take more of the drug than they are supposed to. While addiction is already a problem, it can also lead to an even greater issue, which is overdosing. This is a problem that can affect users of prescription medication, as many people over the years have overdosed on these types of drugs. It’s not unusual to hear about users who abuse their prescription meds and then end up in the emergency room due to an overdose. While it does not happen to everyone, the legality and ease of access make it a more significant possibility among patients.

If you think Ritalin or any other type of stimulant may help you, get in touch with Mango Clinic today. Our medical professionals will evaluate you and determine your individual needs so that you both come to a proper decision as to which type of medication is best for you. You can set up your appointment to meet and speak with one of our licensed doctors by calling us at (786) 422-9327 or by visiting our website’s appointment page.

Concerta-for-ADHD.jpg

ADHD Medications: Concerta (Methylphenidate)

What Are Stimulants?

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help patients from all walks of life, whether you’re remote or a local South Floridian. If you are suffering from ADHD/ADD, we can help you get properly evaluated and prescribed by one of our licensed physicians. There are many benefits to being prescribed an ADHD medication with Concerta being one of them, as it can treat a range of symptoms and specific disorders. However, it is important that you understand the risks involved, as well as the benefits and ways that make stimulants work as well as they do for patients the world over.

Life is full of ups and downs, and we do not always have the time to take care of ourselves properly. Even if we make strides in making sure we are healthy, certain things about our health may be hard to notice or take care of. In some cases, it is possible that there is something wrong with us that we have become accustomed to or we do not want to admit to. Sometimes these feelings, whatever they may be, have been with the person for years, and it hasn’t been a disruption to their daily life until recently.

What is Concerta?

Some people who have these sorts of issues end up having ADHD, which can be treated with Concerta, which is a brand name for the generic methylphenidate. Those with ADHD are prone to being highly distracted in nearly any environment, which can be a big problem at work and with friends and family. This can also mean they are restless and unable to stay still, which can be highly disruptive for the individual, as well as others, therefore, ADHD treatment is oftentimes not optional. Whether the person has had it since childhood, or if it only recently has come into the person’s life, it is wise to get it treated. A lack of concentration and inability to focus is not good for most, but Concerta is able to treat this disorder with great success.

Another disorder that can be treated with Concerta is narcolepsy, which may not be as common as ADHD, but can be just as problematic. A sleeping disorder, individuals with narcolepsy are prone to feeling exhausted throughout the day and in need of sleep on a frequent basis. The most famous symptom of narcolepsy is falling asleep at random, often in places where it is less appropriate, like a board meeting or family gathering. Concerta has proven itself to be an effective treatment option for those with narcolepsy, allowing patients to live better as a result.

Concerta (Methylphenidate)
Concerta is a stimulant drug.

Concerta works in much the way similar stimulants do, in that it stimulates the brain and releases dopamine. When the brain is under extreme duress, such as in ADHD cases, it is craving stimulation that it cannot get otherwise, which is further exacerbated by the lack of dopamine flow. Your neurotransmitters are not acting as they should, and this is causing the brain to have a bad time, which results in an individual being restless and lacking focus. By stimulating the brain and releasing dopamine, your brain gets the activity it so desperately wants, allowing you to regain your focus and stay concentrated, along with more alert.

Concerta Types

Concerta specifically is unique among stimulants as it only really comes in one variety, which is extended-release. It can last for up to 12 hours, which usually means taking one dose per day, or a least once every 12 hours (which usually means once a day for most people). Due to its stronger and longer-lasting effects, it can be recommended for patients who want a powerful stimulant. For that reason, it may not be recommended to all; those with severe ADHD and narcolepsy symptoms might prefer Concerta or similar.

You do not need to have ADHD or narcolepsy to be legally prescribed Concerta, as long as you qualify for the stimulant under the conditions required. A variety of symptoms, ranging from anxiety to stress, can qualify a person to be prescribed Concerta, as it will allow the person to regain their calm. This is why stimulants are so popular with college students, as they are able to keep their focus and concentration with drugs like Concerta. While it is easy to assume that many are interested in stimulants for recreational purposes, it has been shown many take the drug for legal and legitimate purposes related to mental enhancement.

Concerta Side-Effects

Concerta
Concerta prescription from Mango Clinic

For all the benefits that taking Concerta provides, there are also side-effects that should be kept in mind. While there are common ones, such as hypertension, nausea, dry mouth, and sexual dysfunction, there are also psychological side-effects which can be just as problematic. Some of these, though not as common, include anxiety and insomnia, as well as a decrease in self-confidence and libido.

Some of the more serious risks involved with Concerta are tolerance and dependence. If you take too much Concerta at a time, your body can become used to the drug, creating a tolerance that decreases the effects of the drug. This can make the user think they need to be taking more of the drug, which can then lead to dependence on the user. This dependence can easily be translated into addiction, which can turn deadly if the user takes too many pills and overdoses. Overdoses on stimulants are not unusual and can be a real risk if you become addicted to Concerta. This is why people with a history of drug abuse and addiction are not recommended to take stimulants, as it can lead to more problems than solutions.

Taking Concerta can help many people, and if you think you would benefit from it or any other type of stimulant, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Our staff of medical professionals will evaluate your situation, figure out the best medication and dosage, and provide you with a prescription you can take to your local pharmacy. To make your appointment, call us at (786) 422-9327 or visit our appointment webpage on our website.

Prescription-Medications_-Focalin.jpg

ADHD Treatment and Medications: Focalin

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help all types of patients with a variety of health services. This includes getting prescriptions for Focalin, methylphenidate which can help people who have ADHD/ADD, narcolepsy, or other related ailments. We at Mango Clinic understand each patient has their own individual needs and circumstances, which is why we want to make sure our patients understand the benefits of Focalin, who is allowed to be prescribed it, and what to look out for in case you decide this drug is right for you.

Who Is Focalin For?

If you find yourself having trouble concentrating at work, with friends, or even on your own time, you are not alone. This is something that happens to many people, and in some cases, this is an issue they have had to deal with for most of their lives. While it can be one thing to have trouble focusing as a child or teenager, when it comes to adulthood, having a family, and holding a full-time job, it can be a major problem. It can get to the point that the person in question is unable to get their work done, is being disruptive to their work environment, or their relationships with coworkers, friends, and family are not as healthy as they once were.

People with ADHD, whether severe or minor, understand that an inability to stay focused and concentrated can be extremely troublesome for them and those around them. With ADHD, a person can often be very restless, have trouble staying still, and become easily frustrated. This can be detrimental to a person’s work and family life, but drugs like Focalin (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride) allow them to return to a life of normalcy. With this drug, a person with ADD/ADHD will find their focus restored, they become more alert, and their concentration is back to where it is productive.

Focalin is also recommended to people who have narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is a sleeping disorder where the person who has it will find themselves wanting to go to sleep during their regular waking hours. Even if they have had a full night’s sleep, and they should otherwise be full of energy, they will not be and may want to take naps often during the day. This can then lead to the most infamous symptom of narcolepsy, which is falling asleep during the day at random points. Be it during work, when hanging out with friends, or while you’re going for a walk; narcolepsy can cause people to fall asleep at all the wrong times. Focalin is able to provide users with the relief they need to live a healthier life, giving them the energy they need to stay awake.

How Does Focalin Work?

Drugs like Focalin work the way they do by helping the brain and body’s neurotransmitters act more as they should. By targeting the brain, Focalin is able to help it release dopamine, something that is not happening in most people who would be having symptoms that could be treated by Focalin. In this state, the brain is craving all the attention and activity it can get, but it, unfortunately, cannot achieve this, causing it not to act how it should. By releasing dopamine into the body, a person with these symptoms will be able to regain their focus, concentration, and alertness. By giving the brain the activity it so desperately needed, the mind is able to relax again and work just as it should.

Focalin
Focalin is a stimulant drug used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy

While very helpful for ADHD and narcolepsy, Focalin can be very helpful for other people, too. You don’t have to have one of these two disorders in order to be prescribed the drug, just as long as you fall under the qualifications necessary. If you feel you might qualify, all you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with your licensed physician, who will then be able to better determine whether you do or don’t qualify.

This is part of what makes Focalin so appealing to students since the drug is able to keep them focused and concentrated when they might otherwise be stressed and distracted. College can be an overwhelmingly hard time for some, and it can be easy to lose track of dates and assignments. With Focalin, students are able to keep their focus and concentration among the many deadlines, classes, tests, and essays that need to be met or attended to. While it is easy to think a college student is mainly focused on the recreational aspects of Focalin, it has been shown that many of these students do in fact take the drug as intended.

Focalin Risks

Making sure you take Focalin responsibly is essential, as it can be very easy to abuse these sorts of ADHD prescription drugs. While there are common side-effects associated with Focalin, not many people know of the other ways a prescription drug can be dangerous, and that mainly involves tolerance and dependence.

Call Mango Clinic today for your appointment

If your body becomes tolerant to your current prescription, you may become tempted to call up your doctor and increase your dosage. This is something you can do, but you have to be careful that it does result in further tolerance and dependence. Once you become dependent, you increase your risk of abusing the drug to the point where you might be taking too much. When you take too much of a prescription drug, you can find yourself coming close to overdosing. Abuse in the case of prescription drugs is not uncommon, so be sure this is not the case with you if you decide you want to be prescribed Focalin.

Contact us here at Mango Clinic if you would like to speak with a licensed doctor about Focalin or other prescription drugs. Our medical staff will be able to speak with you and help you understand what the best options are for you, including drug types and dosage.

ADHD Treatment and Medications: Dexedrine

Mango Clinic Miami can help you get the help you need with your ADHD/ADD treatment and medications such as Dexedrine. We offer a variety of health services for people young and old, whether it’s emotional support animal letters, weight loss, or anxiety. Making sure every one of our patients is in good health and being taken care of is what we strive for. This is why we think it is vital for people to know about amphetamines, what they do, who they are for, and the risks involved, before deciding to be prescribed.

There is a lot of stress that can come our way, whether we are at work or just enjoying a nice time out with friends. The reasons behind this stress or anxiety are not always known to us, and we can become very nervous or anxious due to how we are feeling. Some people have always had these feelings since childhood, and for others, they have only just recently come up in adulthood. It can be frustrating not knowing exactly what is happening, or why we feel a certain way all of a sudden. It can be even more frustrating for those who have always had these symptoms but have never truly confronted a way to take care of them.

What Is Dexedrine?

Among the disorders that can be treated with Dexedrine (or dextroamphetamine) is ADHD/ADD. Known to cause high stress, anxiety, and frustration, ADHD is a disorder that is characterized by an inability to stay calm and focused. Those with ADHD are prone to being restless, wanting to always be doing something active, and having an overwhelmingly difficult time concentrating on any one thing, let alone many things. This can be detrimental to not only the individual with ADHD, but those around them, whether they be coworkers, family members, friends, or romantic partners.

Dexedrine can also help those who are suffering from narcolepsy, which is a sleeping disorder. Its most common symptoms are feeling extremely exhausted throughout the day, as well as wanting to go to sleep multiple times in the day. The most famous symptom associated with narcolepsy is falling asleep during the day or at random points during the day. This is, in fact, a very real symptom of narcolepsy, as one with the disorder could find themselves falling asleep during a business meeting or when being out with friends.

How Does Dexedrine Work?

Dexedrine is an ADHD Drug
Common ADD-ADHD Drugs

You might be curious as to how a drug like Dexedrine is able to work its magic so well. There are much science intricacies at work, but the simplest illustration is that the drug from the amphetamine family; it visits the neurotransmitters in your brain and makes it release dopamine. At its current state, the brain is not releasing dopamine, which causes the brain to be extremely restless, resulting in the symptoms associated with ADHD. By helping the brain release dopamine, activity is actually occurring in the brain, which then allows it to regain its calm, now that it has been granted the activity it was so badly craving earlier.

With Dexedrine, a user is able to regain their concentration, become alert, and once again, stay focused, which can help someone who has ADHD/ADD or narcolepsy. But Dexedrine is not just for people with those specific disorders. If you happen to be having serious trouble staying focused, concentrating, or staying alert, Dexedrine could greatly benefit you. As long as you qualify to legally be prescribed the drug, there is no reason why you could not make an appointment with your local physician to be evaluated. The legality and helpfulness of Dexedrine is a big reason why college students are fond of taking amphetamine-based stimulants, as they are able to stay focused and concentrated in a high-stress environment. While some might think college-aged individuals are mainly interested in the drug recreationally, many will attest that they use it for legitimate purposes.

Dexedrine Risks and Side-Effects

Dexedrine does provide significant benefits, but there also substantial risks involved that every potential user should keep in mind. The most known among these risks are side-effects, which come with every type of legal amphetamine being sold and prescribed. These side-effects can include nausea, dry mouth, sexual dysfunction, and blurred vision. However, those are only physical symptoms, as there are also psychological symptoms that can come into play. These can include further anxiety and insomnia, as well as delusions and lack of confidence. It may seem odd to consider, but these drugs can negatively impact your mental well-being. If you find your mental health is being adversely affected, tell your doctor.

One other thing to keep in mind is that these drugs are also well known for causing addiction in some patients, which can lead to overdosing on medication. Addiction stems from dependence, which can start with a body’s tolerance for the drug the user is taking. It is possible that, at some point, your body has become so accustomed to the drug that the effects no longer work. Some users might then decide to increase their dosage, which could lead to dependence, meaning you find yourself needing to take the drug more often. Once you find yourself addicted, it can be challenging to stop, and if it goes too far, you could end up overdosing. While this sort of thing does not happen to every amphetamine user, it does happen at a high enough rate that many potential users should be aware of the possible risks.

If you think you are suffering from ADHD/ADD don’t wait, get in touch with Mango Clinic for treatment. Our licensed staff of medical professionals will be able to help you get the right medication you need, what to look out for, dosage amounts, and which drugs are right for you. We understand each patient has their own unique reasons for wanting medication, so we make sure to treat each patient carefully and with understanding.

Prescription-Drugs_-Amphetamines.jpg

When it comes to getting treatment for your health condition or ailment, there are many prescription drugs to choose from. It can be tricky navigating the pharmaceutical world and knowing which drug is best for you. Mango Clinic wants to help patients better traverse this world by providing helpful information that can benefit you when choosing a medication for recovery, whether it’s a relief from stress or anxiety, or ADHD treatment. In this article, we will discuss how certain amphetamines are used to treat ADD/ADHD.

What Are Amphetamines?

Known for being fairly versatile, amphetamines can be used to treat ailments that usually involve high anxiety and stress. For the most part, you will see amphetamines being used to treat ADHD, whose symptoms can include anxiety and stress. However, you may just have independent stress or anxiety; amphetamines and other related prescription drugs can be used to treat these conditions.

Amphetamines can be a popular prescription drug among people for various reasons. For those who do suffer from ADHD, it can be a very helpful drug for combating the symptoms associated, such as restlessness and inability to focus. Some people have intense stress or anxiety, which can also be taken care of with the help of amphetamines.

Anyone who wants to get amphetamines legally must be first evaluated by a licensed physician; the doctor will decide whether or not to prescribe you based on different variables. In most cases, as long as your reasons are genuine, you should be able to get a prescription.

How Do Amphetamines Work?

Amphetamines are stimulants, which means their intended purpose is to stimulate the brain. In the cases of those with ADHD, their brain is craving attention that it is not able to satisfy. This results in frustration and restlessness, as the brain cannot focus. A person with these symptoms will have a harder time being able to do complete tasks and things they normally could if they did not have ADHD.

The stimulant in question functions by going to the brain and helping it release dopamine. If dopamine is being suppressed, you will have a brain that is in a perpetual fret, wanting to distract itself in any way it can. Releasing dopamine provides the brain with the much-wanted activity it was looking for, and in turn, allows for a person to get their concentration back.

Amphetamine Side-Effects and Risks

As helpful as amphetamines can be, there are also hazards involved that some people may not consider. The most understood and broadcasted danger are side-effects, which can happen to a certain amount of people who take prescription drugs.

Some of these can be physical, such as hypertension, nausea, blurred vision, dry mouth, and sexual dysfunction, along with more severe effects like a stroke or heart attack. There are also psychological side-effects such as depression and loss of libido, among others. You can even become more restless and frustrated due to amphetamines, though this is very rare.

One major hazard associated with amphetamines is abuse, which can lead to overdosing. If you become too dependent on amphetamines, it can be very easy to take more than you should or ask your doctor for a higher dosage. A decent percentage of amphetamine users are susceptible to abuse, which has led to overdoses and emergency room visits. If you feel you might become addicted to your prescription meds, it is not recommended that you start taking amphetamines.

Types of Amphetamines

People can think that stimulants are either too dangerous or outright illegal. However, this is obviously not true, as many popular prescription drugs are actually amphetamines. All the same, if you are interested in amphetamines, it can be tricky knowing what counts and what does not. We decided to run down a few of the most well-known amphetamines on the market, all of which can be prescribed to you by a licensed doctor.

Adderall

When people come up with a name for a popular amphetamine, Adderall is one of the first that comes to mind. It is primarily aimed towards treating ADHD and narcolepsy but can also be used for those with high stress and anxiety. Adderall is a unique combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that goes to work on the brain by altering the chemicals and neurons responsible for keeping and releasing dopamine.

Dexedrine

Dexedrine is mostly used for treating ADHD in children, along with narcolepsy. It helps with attention spans by altering the chemicals and neurotransmitters in your brain.

Focalin

Focalin is available in both a regular release and extended-release format, which allows for a user to either take the drug every few hours or roughly once per day. It helps with a person’s ADHD symptoms such as restlessness, overactivity, and inability to control impulses.

Ritalin

Known under many other brand names and variations, Ritalin can also be found as Aptensio, Concerta, Metadate, Methylin, and Quillivant. 

Vyvanse

Vyvanse is targeted towards patients who have ADHD and similar ailments, but it is also recommended to patients with eating disorders. The chemical changes the drug makes to the brain allows for ADHD patients to regain their focus and for eating disorder patients to not give in to their habitual impulses.

How-Long-Does-Vyvanse-Stay-in-Your-System_.jpg

How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your System?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a treatable medical condition that affects both adults and children. ADHD is diagnosed based on specific criteria that include a complete history and evaluation by a healthcare provider. Although most people were diagnosed with ADHD during there youth, it is possible for an adult not to be diagnosed until later in life. In this article, we will go back to discussing Vyvanse and its effects on one’s body.

Despite some common misconceptions, children do not grow out of this disorder, symptoms change over time and what may have been an issue during their youth may not be once the patient has reached maturity. Although some individuals may not have been diagnosed until adulthood, the disorder was always present. It is believed that some children are capable of creating coping mechanisms and masking the telltale signs of ADHD. Once the demands of work and family life changed, what once worked to hide the symptoms no longer effective leading to frustration, confusion and often anxiety. 

Although the symptoms of ADHD differ from person to person, common ones do exist. Listed below are just a few that are often seen in adults with this condition. 

ADHD Symptoms:

  • Makes careless mistakes and lacks attention to details
  • Often has difficulty paying attention to tasks
  • Seems not to listen when spoken to directly
  • Fails to follow through on instructions or duties in the workplace
  • Lack of organizational skills
  • Avoids participating in jobs that require sustained mental effort
  • Loses thing easily
  • Easily distracted by other things including unrelated thoughts
  • Forgetfulness
  • Restlessness 
  • Unable to participate in leisure activities
  • Excessive talking
  • Difficulty waiting on others
  • Often interrupts or intrudes on others

These symptoms can affect individuals at home, work or in social situations. To be diagnosed, five or more of these symptoms must occur for at least six months and be present in two or more settings. Additionally, there must be clear evidence that the symptoms interfere with a person’s social or work functions and that they are not due to another mental health disorder. 

 

ADHD Medications

Since ADHD was first recognized as a separate mental health disorder, researchers have studied ways to help individuals cope. The two ADD/ADHD treatments that currently show the most benefit are therapy and medications. While therapy is often an excellent place to learn effective coping mechanisms, drugs have been developed that help patients function normally.

Vyvanse is a prescription medication that was developed to treat adults who have ADHD. It is designed to increase attention while decreasing impulsiveness. Approved in 2007 by the FDA, Vyvanse is a prodrug, and its side effects are considered to be less harsh than other ADHD medications. A prodrug is an inert substance that is metabolized in the body to become an active medication; in this case dextroamphetamine. Dextroamphetamine increases the availability of dopamine and norepinephrine in the central nervous system. These chemicals work together to maintain alertness, increase focus and sustain thought, effort, and motivation.

How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your Urine?

Drug tests are often used to screen for the presence of amphetamines. Not only can they detect the parent drug but the metabolites left behind as the drug is processed as well. Individuals who are prescribed certain medications should be aware that if their employer requires random drug screening, those who take Vyvanse will receive a positive test. Proper documentation such as a current prescription should be readily available if a drug screening is administered. 

Vyvanse is currently only available in an extended-release capsule. The effects of this medication will last from 10-14 hours after administration, but it can be screened for in the urine up to three days after usage even if a second dosage is not administered.

Some people may process Vyvanse faster than others depending on the rate their body metabolizes it. Also, younger, healthier and even larger people tend to eliminate medications more quickly than others. Those who have health problems or organ function impairment excrete drugs slower.

Blood screenings for  Vyvanse use have a relatively short detection window. Approximately eight hours after using this medication, a blood test will not indicate usage. In fact, the window is so short that Vyvanse is very rarely detected by this method. 

Medical practitioners often require drug screenings when prescribing amphetamines to their patients. This type of drug can be highly addictive and is often abused. To ensure that prescribing recommendations have been followed, routine testing may be ordered to verify the amount of Vyvanse in the patient’s system. Individuals who have been taking it as prescribed should not worry. However, if too much of this powerful drug is detected, your provider may discontinue its use. The FDA lists Vyvanse as a Schedule II class drug and is considered dangerous if not carefully monitored. 

If Vyvanse is used by someone who it was not prescribed, they can experience side effects such as irritability, anxiety and sleep disturbances. Rarely individuals, including those who have a prescription for its use, can have more severe complications such as panic attacks, hallucinations, mania, delusions, and paranoia. Be sure to discuss anything unusual with your mental health provider.

ADD/ADHD Medications: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help potential patients find the right medication they need to improve their health. Our medical staff can assist all types of patients seeking stimulants that can help them live a better life. Vyvanse is one such stimulant that can help people who may have ADHD, eating disorder, or another ailment that can be treated with the drug. While a helpful ADHD treatment prescription drug, it is important to know what the drug does, who it is for, the benefits, and the side-effects.

For many, life can provide plenty of great things, but it can also cause unwanted stress. Whether it’s work, family, friendships, or relationships, there is plenty of reason to be stressed for one reason or another. Unfortunately for some, this stress can affect one’s life in such an extreme way that they become less productive and stable. Some people find themselves with symptoms that prevent them from completing work or doing things they want to do, which can be severely damaging to one’s life.

What Is Vyvanse?

ADHD/ADD is a disorder that can bring with it symptoms of being unproductive and maybe even less stable than you once were. While it is common for patients to have had ADHD since childhood, it can still develop in adults. Vyvanse is able to treat ADHD symptoms that cause people to lose focus; through taking this medication, a patient will find themselves feeling relief that will allow them to take the next steps towards full recovery.

ADHD is not the only thing patients can use Vyvanse for, as it has a variety of uses that makes it versatile for all patients. If you exhibit similar symptoms of stress, lack of focus, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, and the like, you can be prescribed Vyvanse legally from a licensed doctor. All you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with a licensed doctor who can evaluate you. From there, you explain to them why it is you think would benefit from having Vyvanse or another type of stimulant.

What is Vyvanse and how it works

How Does Vyvanse Work?

Vyvanse, like other stimulants, works by entering your body and targeting your brain’s reward center, which will then allow it to release dopamine. This is vital, as dopamine enables the brain to function as it should, which means a more functioning and productive person. The neurotransmitters in the brain work to provide, as the drug name implies, stimulation to the mind, which will allow for a tighter focus on behalf of the user. By giving the brain the stimulation it craves, the body and mind become alert and properly energized. This translates to a patient being able to stay focused and less restless than they were before, making it a prime prescription drug for treating ADHD and related ailments.

Due to these positive benefits of brain stimulation, drugs like Vyvanse become quite popular with all types of people and not just those that might be who have ADD/ADHD. If you find yourself with overwhelming stress, you can check with your licensed doctor and see if you qualify for stimulants. It can be a very popular legal drug among students, who find themselves unable to handle the pressures of school properly. Due to their legal status and general ease of access, stimulants are available to many people who are able to qualify for a prescription. While this is mostly a good thing, since it means more people are able to receive helpful medication, it can also be a problem in some circumstances, though not usually.

Vyvanse Risks

While drugs like stimulants are very helpful, it is always essential to understand the risks that go along with them. You should not be taking a stimulant if you are not aware of the possible dangers behind taking the drug, as they can be quite severe depending on the individual. The side-effects associated with Vyvanse include hypertension, erectile dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, loss of appetite, blurred vision, and muscle spasms. These effects can be unfortunate for anyone, but it is especially problematic for those who already have severe anxiety and stress.

Vyvanse Side-Effects

Physical side-effects are important, but just as vital are side-effects which are psychological in nature. Stimulants are already trying to work on your brain, so having an additional mental issue is the last thing you want happening. Increased alertness and concentration are among the side-effects, which means being even more focused and energized than you should be. You can also find yourself having more significant anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and lack of confidence, all of which can have an adverse effect on your treatment. The psychological effects of a stimulant can be a major problem, so make sure any and all side-effects are reported to your doctor.

Side-effects are a common thing that has become a well-known disclaimer when advertising prescription drugs. However, there is more to these drugs than just common side-effects; you can also become dependent, tolerant of, and addicted to Vyvanse. The tolerance comes from taking the drug in large enough quantities that their effect is no longer working. If this happens, you might want to simply increase your dosage, but it might depend on how you are handling the current dosage. This is where dependence and addiction come in; it is well-known that users can become addicted to their medication, and stimulants are no different. Those with addictive histories or personalities are usually not recommended to take stimulants for these reasons.

If you are interested in Vyvanse or any other medication for your ADD/ADHD treatment and understand the benefits and risks, then contact us at Mango Clinic to schedule your appointment. You will speak with a licensed physician who will help you understand how stimulants work and which one would be best for you. After an evaluation, you will decide on a type of medication and dosage, which you will be able to pick up at your local pharmacy. You can make your appointment today by calling us at 786-391-0269 or by visiting our website’s appointment page.
