should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
11 Replies RSS
Some of my capsules are filled all the way some are filled just a little and some are just half of the way which is the proper amount? ## Hi Kim, From what you've stated, it seems like they've been tampered with. I would probably call a local pharmacy and find out if these irregularities are normal. Something just doesn't sound right about each capsule containing what appears to be different doses; let alone the thought of being shorted on the full amount. Did you get this filled at a licensed pharmacy or come about it through some other means? I'm just curious because that would probably help determine their legitimacy. Thanks for any additional info you might have. ## I just got 30 day supply of 50 mg vyvanse & over half of my pills were half filled. This really ma...

early refill of vyvanse
2 Replies RSS
Doctor took me off vyvanse due to BP issues and put me on low dose of Adderall IR and so I threw the remaining script away for vyvanse, two weeks later put me back on it because BP was resolved and Adderall had bad side effects. My ? Is what do I do regarding pharmacy to get the new script filled? Anyone been thru this before? ## Usually, they will call your doctor to have it authorized, because they can explain what happened. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The amount of times I have been told that I am "too early" to fill a stimulant prescription is breath-taking. If i'm even one day ear...

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?

Help. Vyvanse was a dream come true for me for a year, but it's not working any more.

I was a scatter-brained mom of two young children, couldn't concentrate, organize, plan, or function at all beyond bare minimal survival. Within a day of starting Vyvanse under my doctor's supervision, I became a whole new person. I was functional again! I could finally sit down and play a board game with my daughter. I was happy, energetic, organized, I could accomplish several major tasks each day rather than only one a day or none at all which had been the case before. I rekindled my love for exercising. Over the course of two years since I began taking Vyvanse, I've transformed from a braindead, overweight stay-at-home mom to a healthy, happy 3.5 GPA college student and a thin, muscular yoga instructor. But the second year has been rougher because the medication's ef...

I was prescribed Vyvanse to help give me energy because I am diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I was prescribed Hydrocodon to help with the pain but have not taken it with Vyvanse because I worry about drug I interactions. Would it be safe? Vyvanse is 30mg and Hydrocodon is 500 acetaminophen/325.

Just started Vyanse and have questions
Post a Reply
I'm so happy I found an active forum. Been googling all kinds of search terms because I am new to this medication and would love feedback and advise. I'm 52 and started on 30mg. I told my doctor I didn't feel much after only two days of that fun high. After only one week he upped me to 60mg. I am bipolar and take meds for that, depression, anxiety and under active thyroid. I'm thinking this dose is too strong. I'm feeling anxious and agitated after only 4 hours. Now it's been a total of 8 1/2 hours and still anxious but also really tired and zoned out. Any thoughts? Do I keep going hoping this side effect will go away? If I do how many days does it take? Or should I go back to 30 until I see my doctor in 3 days? Oh I'm also taking 500mg twice daily for weight lo

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 70 Mg False Positive For Cocaine
10 Replies RSS
I tested positive for cocaine, i do not do cocaine, i am prescribed Vyvanse 70 Mg can that cause a false positive drug screening? ## No, Vyvanse hasn't been know to cause false positives for anything. Were you taking anything else, even over the counter products? Learn more drug test details here. ## I was taking aderal for a time,and suboxone. I had a huge blowout with the woman who runs the urine lab the same day I got the false positive. I also wonder if the result really exists and that it may have been reported to me wrong..? The hair test was also positive but had been submitted the same week 3 days prior to the urine. Funny though, when I got the positive result of the hair test I went in the very next day to get another one from the same facility and the result was negative ...

Is this extremely harmful? Has anyone on here had to go through this before? Hopefully someone can help. ## No, it isn't a combination that is extremely harmful, as long as your doctor has prescribed them for you and is monitoring you regularly for any issues. However, you may experience more side effects, according to the NIH, which could include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and sedation. What side effects have you experienced, so far?

vyvanse withdrawals
Post a Reply
Good Morning Everyone, I have been on Vyvanse 50 mg for about 7 months. Took it everyday. My company that I work for changed their insurance policy where I now have a 3,000 deductible before copays hit. Vyvanse became 294.00 a month. Couldn't afford it. My doctor (former doctor who never listened to me) tried to put me on Dexedrine twice a day as a suitable replacement. I am currently on Wellbutrin XL 150 mg for my depression and anxiety (and I hear that it helps with ADD) but I am on day 1 of my cold turkey stoppage and I feel like a truck hit me. I thought Vyvanse helped but it really hurt me too. I became irritable, wasn't sleeping, and experienced Amphetamine Induced Erectile Dysfunction. I have been having problems for a few weeks. Twice I was with my girlfriend and couldn...

Should the capsules have beads or powder in it? A friend had gotten a red and blue capsule and it had powder in it. I think it was 7mg. Not sure. But there was also a 30mg that had beads in it.

free 30 day trial for Vyvanse?

Does anyone know if the free 30 day trial for Vyvanse is still available? I cannot find it anywhere. My prescription was $250 last month. ## For that I think you can go to vyvansesavings.com. That's the manufacturer's site. ## This site also offers visitors a free prescription savings card which I believe should work with Vyvanse among a number of other medications. ## Is the 30 day free trial still available for the vyvanse this month? Can't afford to get them filled. ## I need a free trial to this med helps well the cost way too much ## Yes there is a rx savings card for a free 30-day trial floating around, I actually just picked one up on my doctors office the other day - I guess the pharmaceutical rep. for Shire makes frequent visits lol.

vyvanse and sleep, insomnia
Post a Reply
Everyone reacts differently to medications. For me I've decided concerta is the best because this medication, though supposedly less hard on the body, doesn't let me sleep at all. I've always had a lot of trouble sleeping without adding meds to the mix and this trail was hell for me. I'm not an addict overdosing on the medication either. 40mg and I can't sleep, meaning after a week I'm so burn't out that the medicine doesn't even help because my mind and body are run into the ground. I didn't understand why so many people misuse any of these meds. You are putting yourself in danger of heart problems! I personally don't find any of these meds to be addicting nor do they do much more than help me to have the normal energy level of others. My focus i...

Is this normal to take this med for 5 yrs? I really never even knew she had adhd? In fact I really dont know why she is taking it or even started. Her phyc. precribed it to her , he also prescribed viibryd which is a ssri. She also takes precocet 10/325 for back pain, i am not sure how many she take, but she has pills located in 3 locations of the house, so she does not always take 4 a day. Then she has a lipoderm patch, and has acess to a fentonal patch also, not sure how much she uses this. Then she takes klonipin to sleep. She does not doc shop, but the vyvanse and the percocet come from2 different docs. I am most comcerned about the vyvanse abuse . It has been a long time . We are divorcing and she wants me to keep paying for it. I believe she is addicted, and i aslo know she cant g...
