Brief Answer:
Suited for AHDA. Needs careful plan and monitoring

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

Desoxyn is indicated and approved for the management of AHDA. Taken in low concentrations, it is possible to experience improved fatigue from taking this drug.

However, there are a few considerations that must be carefully considered before prescribing thus drug. This drug has some side effects, and anything unusual noticed while taking the drug should be reported to the physician. An initial dose taken once daily, with low doses from the start of therapy is the normal practice. Once treatment is started, getting off treatment could lead to rebounding, causing an increase in emotional lability and impulsivity, or a worsening of presenting symptoms. Reason why a carefully and compulsory medical follow up is needed.

I therefore suggest you XXXXXXX your primary care doctor for a careful planning of a feasible management plan. Kind regards and hope this helps. Feel free asking further questions in case you got any specific concerns. kind regards

Dr Rogers
