Purpose: To determine if dextroamphetamine sulfate could help post-concussion symptoms, not only of severe headaches but severe stuttering as an additional complication. Materials and Methods: Dextroamphetamine sulfate (part of amphetamine salts) 15 mg extended release capsules was given to a 15-year-old with severe migraine headaches, jaw pain allegedly from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, and severe stuttering. Results: The jaw pain and stuttering completely disappeared during the first few days of treatment and the migraines were markedly improved. Conclusion: Post-concussion stuttering can be added to the long list of pathological entities that comprise the increased cellular permeability syndrome, as evidenced by impressive response to sympathomimetic amine therapy.
