What causes mouth ulcers after taking Amphetamine salt combo?
My 13 year old son has been prescribed Amphetamine salt combo 3x daily 20 mg. He has been on it for over a year but recently has been complaining of mouth cankers, sore and an agitated throat and tongue. Is this normal? Is it serious side effect??
Based on the history you have shared, if he had been fine for a year and now developed these sores, it will less likely because of the salt. However local thrush or fungal infection should be ruled out.
Also iron, zinc or vitamin C deficiency can cause such symptoms so better to replace those. Local anti fungal like meconazole or Nystatin drops can be helpful.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
