Abstract  

Purpose: To attempt a new treatment for severe long-standing diarrhea and abdominal pain from microscopic colitis. Materials and Methods: Dextroamphetamine sulfate was prescribed to a 42-year-old woman with progressively worsening microscopic colitis. Results: Within one month she showed a 90% improvement. Conclusion: Dextroamphetamine sulfate immediately caused marked improvement in her diarrhea and pain in one month despite 35 years of suffering.

Key words:  Microscopic colitis      Increased cellular permeability syndrome      Dextroamphetamine sulfate      Abdominal pain      Diarrhea
