Vyvanse 70 mg for ADHD
Post a Reply
I just got a new job and scheduled to take a drug test at 3:30pm. I take Vyvanse 70mg 1 tab first thing in the morning! I've been taking this for years to help with my ADHD! Will this be a problem for me? Even though I am under Physician care, I don't want to have this prevent me from getting my job.

Stopped taking vyvanse…when will I get my natural energy levels back?
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Vyvanse consistently for around 2 years. I finally decided I want to go off of it. For the past week, I have not been taking it and I feel overall better (less anxiety), BUT my levels of fatigue are crazy. I have been getting 8 hours of sleep overnight but I constantly feel tired all the time. When will I get my energy levels back? A week? A month? A year? If anyone has been through this please let me hear your experience. ## Hello, Courtney! How are you? If you stopped taking it abruptly, rather than tapering off, then this is normal and is basically a rebound effect. It usually takes about a month to wear off, if it doesn't, then you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I suggest 5 HTP in GNC. It is a precursor serotonin. It wil...

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
32 Replies RSS
I don't have a question but do have a few thoughts about Vyvanse. I noticed that in the official Vyvanse drug info that Vyvanse was being considered in the treatment of Major Depression Disorder. I have struggled with Bipolar ll for many years with Seasonal Pattern, ie I have extreme depression in the winter and hypomania in the summer. My depressions generally havetreatment resistant and I have been hospitalized several times. A couple of times only ECTs could break my depressions. There have been times when depression threatened my life because it was so unbearable. A couple times ECT's was the only effective treatment. Last winter (2010-2011), I didn't bother with seeking hospitalization but strongly felt that I could not deal with another bout of such debilitating depres...

Yesterday I took 3 zanaflex at about 4:30pm then at about 5am I took a vyvanse. It 3:35 where I'm at. I'm experiencing severe stomach pain. It hurts when I move even when I talk I can't eat anything I can barely drink water. Am I going to be ok. I'm 13 years old I weigh 106 pounds and I'm 5,6 ## The vyvanse was a full 70mg plz let me know if I will be ok ## How are you doing? Did you suffer any other adverse effects? Are these medications prescribed for you? Any time this happens and you fear that you may be in danger, you should contact poison control or go to your nearest emergency care facility. By combining muscle relaxants, which is essentially a downer, with the stimulant, you give you body conflicting messages and it's not sure what to do/which message to ...

Vyvanse Cause False Positive On Drug Test For Meth
3 Replies RSS
Can Vyvanse cause a false positive for meth when taking a drug test? ## No, Vyvanse hasn't been known to cause false positives for anything else. Learn more Vyvanse details here. Was the person in question taking any other medications, even over the counter products? ## Possible. So will ephedrine or pueudoepedrine. Darvocet or Darvon, (propoxephene) now withdrawn will come up positive as it is related to methadone. NOTE: ALL VICODIN TYPE PRODUCTS WITH ACETAMINOPHEN RESCHEDULED TO CLASS II AS OF OCTOBER. ## You will test positive for meth

making s489 70 mg vyvanse injections
6 Replies RSS
How are interested parties making s489 70 mg vyvanse injections with the pill form of the drug? Do they cold process the main ingredient? ## how do you take 70mg vyvanse by injection? ## How to inject this? ## Can you inject vyvanse? is it dangerous like taking methamphetamine, or is it cleaner? ## Yes u can put in your spoon add water and do your thing ## Mixing vyvanse powder with a week acid (like acetic/vitaminc) will break the lysine bond to form dexamphetamine. Your body should finish the process from there.. ## So your saying I could just use pure white vinegar (instead of vitaminc,etc) it all basically does the same chemical reaction... Correct? Should I add water to this mixture?

Vyvanse and Adderall Lab Urine Test
Post a Reply
Hi. I'm prescribed Vyvanse 50mg but I ran out and took some Adderall IR 30mgs to hold me off. Is this going to come up for something different then the regular amphetamines that I test positive for? And when the urine test gets sent to the lab will they be able to tell I'm taking Adderall instead of Vyvanse?

Encouragement Anyone?
7 Replies RSS
I just started taking 50 mg Vyvanse and you guys are scaring the crap out of me! Seriously! Only physical "symptom" I've noticed is lack of appetite, but that's a good thing as I am diabetic and obese. Not sure how I feel mentally--a bit more focused and calm perhaps. Just don't know what I'm supposed to feel. I'm 65 with diabetes, high blood pressure (controlled), sleep apnea, and depression. Are the issues you're talking about what I have to look forward to? And why don't some of you call your doctors with your questions? Am I just too "old" to "get it"? Any encouraging words out there, instead of discouraging? Thanks ## If you aren't experiencing the stuff that others have mentioned, then you really shouldn't worry about it....

I have been on Vyvanse for 4 weeks and I am now tapering off. I was going to quit cold turkey , but I wke up this morning and felt like I'd been hit by a truck. It's been a few hours and I still feel like I have a mild case of the flu. Anyway, I started 4 weeks ago and the first 3 days I never felt better in my life. I 'd never been so productive, focused, and organized! By day 7 , I was back to my normal under- acheiving, scrammbled , self. Then my Dr. raised my dose from 30 mg to 50. Well this threw me into severe anxiety. I have been chewing my nails till they bleed. I can't seem to stop. I have a feeling of being completely overwhelmed, my house is trashed and it's driving me nuts, but I have no energy or drive to get up and clean it.....Can anyone else out there...

Vyvanse Has Ruined My Life
3 Replies RSS
I am 19 years old and I have been on Vyvanse for 3 years now. I started out with 50mg and it was amazing. I could stay focused throughout the entire school day, and at the same time I felt great. But after several months or so I noticed I wasn't getting the same results taking the 50mg, so I went up to 60mg. As the months passed by I began to realize I was becoming extremely addicted. I couldn't go a day without taking it. I eventually started taking two a day sometimes and I would run out of medication a week early. When I didn't have any medication...I would feel like total crap. I would get extremely tired, grumpy, and depressed, and I had no energy when I was off the vyvanse. I became so dependent on it that I didn't care about anything else. I lost interest in the t...

Results of a 5 panel urine drug test.
1 Reply RSS
My boyfriend was given a 5 panel urine drug test. He is currently taking 40 mg of Vyvanse. The test results showed that all panels were negative except for the THC. So the test for the Vyvanse was negative. Would that mean that the result for the THC could be wrong also? ## On a five panel test, each drug is tested individually. If he rested positive for THC then I feel confident that he had THC in his system. I am not certain, but I don't believe Vyvanse is a drug that is tested for. I don't believe it is a narcotic. Again, I am not positive about the Vyvanse.

ADHD MEDS ADDERALL and VYVANSE
6 Replies RSS
Please READ this as I am going to try to explain my best of my experience with these medications. I want to start out saying that life is what you make it. There are millions of people out there with a chemical imbalance such as ADHD, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY etc. With that being said I have all three of them stated above. I went all through high school without being on any medications. I tried some depression pills but never stuck with them but I made it and graduated with a B-C average but I did it. I first was introduced to the drug ADDERALL from my best friend who I worked with at the time. He gave me a 10mg instant release Adderall pill. I was scared to take it because I didn't do drugs besides drink on occasion. So I was scared what it was going to do to me. Well since that day my ...

vyvanse high heart rate and low patience
2 Replies RSS
I am on 40 mg of vyvanse and I have concerns with my heart rate being around 88 bpm. I try to work out at least 3 times a week, and I think that my heart rate was lower before I got on it. I know its a stimulus drug. I have concerns its hurting my heart and could have problems in life later. (I don't have family history, I was a foster kid.) is there a way to lower the heart rate while on the medicine?? is it ok? I also don't pay attention to drinking water. I try to drink water when I think about it. I am doing better with eating now. but the water is still a little problem. second, I am more aggressive in the way I speak. without the medicine I am very nice and nothing bothers me at all. you could be yelling at me and I am able to not care about it. but now, things bother easi...

Difference in the two pills
1 Reply RSS
My buddy takes vyvanse 30 mg in the morning and then he takes the d amphetamine salt combo 5 mg in the afternoon. What are the (main) differences in the two? ## They are different medications, but are both stimulants that treat the same conditions, such as ADHD and narcolepsy. Are these both prescribed for him? It's very unusual for a doctor to prescribe two different ones. The FDA that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

capsule ## Are you referring to Vyvanse? It contains the active ingredient Lisdexamfetamine and is used to treat ADHD and Narcolepsy. Common side effects may include: nausea, headache, insomnia and anorexia. Read more: Please let me know if this is the correct medication. ## I'm on vivan 50 mg and I have no insurance is there something more affordable I could be prescribed? ## Is it similar to adderall or is it better? ## I have had chronic insomnia as long as I can remember until lately I will stay up a night then not be able to function for days if not a week later. I would constantly fall asleep no matter what I was doing. I was given 100mg Vivan for Narcolepsy. It took two to take effect and that took over an hour. Is there anything faster acting? I hate being a total zombie. It...
