Thank you for your query.

It is good to know that you are off all these drugs after taking a detox course. Unfortunately you have not mentioned why do you want to restart dextroamphetamine. I would recommend not to start them. It will be advisable to consult your doctor and take these if required.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you all the best.
