Dextroamphetamine (Procentra) is an expensive drug used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. This drug is less popular than comparable drugs. There are currently no generic alternatives to Procentra. It is not covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but manufacturer and pharmacy coupons can help offset the cost. Compare central nervous system stimulants.
