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?

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
8 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...

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?
12 Replies RSS
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. I believe this coupon was recent...

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...

Vyvanse - wife has taken 70 mg for about 5 yrs
5 Replies RSS
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...

Vyvanse makes me feel...
10 Replies RSS
I have been on Vyvanse now for about a week and a half. I am only taking 30 mg and was diagnosed with Adult ADD. I am not sure if this is usual but I am feeling very sleepy. I see that a lot of people post that they can not sleep, well for me that is not the case. I feel like I am half awake through the morning and the afternoon. The medication seems to wear of in the late afternoon because I slowly start to feel more alert, my apatite comes back, and so does the symptoms of ADD. I have been getting headaches at night. When I am on the Vyvanse, I do feel calmer and able to deal with things better. It has helped with my anxiety which I believe was cause by being unorganized, late, and all over the place before. I like that about this medication but wonder if it's the wrong one for me...

Common side effects may include: nausea, headache, insomnia and anorexia.

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
40 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...

vyvanse dose drop
2 Replies RSS
I'm a 17 year old Junior in High School and I have been taking 70 mg of Vyvanse for longer than I can remember, even before 7th grade. Recently my boyfriend has been telling me it's making me depressed. I can usually tell when my medicine has worn off and one night I was acting happier than usual because of that. He told me I should just stop taking it, but my mother who's recently been very controlling tells me otherwise. Would it really be that bad to just drop it? Also, out of curiosity, i often forget I take my pill and end up taking a second one. How much is too much? ## Hello, Himeko! How are you? The best thing to do, regardless of what your boyfriend or your mother says, is to go discuss the problem with your doctor. They are the best qualified to advise you on this....
