Potential side effects of using Dinintel and similar medications include restlessness, nervousness, irritability and insomnia. While these symptoms vary in severity from patient to patient and are generally not serious or life-threatening, they are sometimes severe enough to cause patients to stop taking the medication. Patients taking Dinintel may test positive in drug screenings since the drug is metabolized by the body into amphetamine before excretion through the urine.
