Husband addicted to Dexedrine
(Norwalk, CT, US)
My husband was prescribed Dexedrine by his doctor 3 years ago. It has taken control over his life. He mixes it with Neurontin and when he is stressed out goes for drinking.
This whole mix makes him an angry being, to the point that last Halloween I had to call the cops as he destroyed the door of one of our rooms, spat on my face and threaten to drive the car while the street was crowded with kids trick or treating.
He had to go to anger management classes and drug abuse classes for 6 months in which he controlled himself a bit.
Now it's starting all over again with the difference that now I am 4 months pregnant and I am getting really scared. I don't think his doctor cares much if he is abusing these pills or not. I don't believe there is a follow up.
Either my husband is a great liar when his sees him or the doctor is completely dumb. There is no talking to him, everything is taken the wrong way, I am always at fault. I am not sure how to proceed anymore, how do you deal with a person like this? He was definitely not like this before starting to take the Dexedrine.
