Vyvanse gave me a new life.
Post a Reply
I have been taking Vyvanse for several years now and it has changed my life.....for the better. I was in my late 40's when I took a brother of mine to the doctor to see if there was any help available for his mental condition. Something that could help him function and be productive and have some normal thinking patterns. Long story short that didn't work for him but while there and hearing some information about ADD I realized me, my mother, my son, and other family members suffered to some degree with this disorder. I wanted to learn more and knew nothing of the drugs or how they worked. It was a little scary because I never had been a medicine person and was reluctant to try a drug to deal with this problem. I knew that my thinking process was in short increments not long dra...

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 cheaper I could get. ## Is it similar to adderal Or is it the 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?

Vyvanse Withdrawal
6 Replies RSS
Needing some help. I have been taking 40/mg Vyvanse 2 times a day for about 2 weeks, before I was on just 50/mg a day but noticing the crash in afternoon and my dr decided to up my dose to twice a day. I went to take my vyvanse this morning and I can't find my bottle of meds! I was on campus all day yesterday (I'm in my last yr of grad school) and usually keep my bottle in there. I was pulling stuff in and out all day so I'm wondering if I dropped it somewhere? I've searched everywhere and can't find anything. I even called the campus police station to see if anyone turned it in (HA I know fat chance, but I was desperate) My next dr. appt isn't until Dec 19th and I don't think I could get a refill on it anyways bc of the strict stimulant prescription rules in...

Withdrawal from Vyvanse

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 possible Treament for Depression
29 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...

Accidental 2nd dose of vyvanse and I'm a stay at home mom, please advise
2 Replies RSS
I accidentally took a 2nd dose of my 60mg vyvanse daily dosage. I had completely forgotten I had already taken it earlier. I am 135 lbs. and a stay at home mother. Will I be okay? Please advise. ## Hello, JMarie! How are you doing? Did anything happen? In cases such as this, you should always contact your doctor or poison control. While there are always people online, like myself, that are happy to help, if we can, we cannot administer life saving aid, if that is what's required. This is a stimulant, so an overdose does have the potential to be dangerous, it could cause a dangerously elevated heart rate and hypertension, so it's not something to be taken lightly. ## Sounds like the vyvanse isn't working if u forgot u took it in the first place.

Results of a 5 panel urine drug test.
Post a Reply
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?

Can my Dr. tell the difference between Vyvanse and Adderall..
Post a Reply
Can they tell the difference between Vyvanse and Adderall through a UDS (urine drug screen) IN THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE or is that something that they would have to send away for? I'm aware that they CAN tell the difference between the two, but can they tell the difference between them with a test that they can do right in my doctor's office or do they have to do a special test for it?

dextroamp amphet er 20mg cap
1 Reply RSS
I am an adult with ADD. I've done very well with Vyvanse 50 for past 5 yrs. but new insurance formulary won't pay for this. The nearest substitute I can find is dextroamp-amphet and I'm told that 20mg twice daily or 20mg + 10mg mid afternoon should be equivalent. Don't think I can get both rx'd per month. Can I split a 20mg ER cap? Will this cause a huge crash? I found Vyvanse very smooth and insomnia was seldom a problem. Thanks. ## No, you can't split the ER ones, since they are time released. Doing so may cause you to accidentally take too much of the medication, at once, which could result in overdose. What has your doctor advised? They should be able to help you find an equivalent that you can try. The FDA classifies this medication as stimulant, so it carri...

ADHD MEDS ADDERALL and VYVANSE
4 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 ...

Two different ADHD Meds from two different doctors
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I am currently seeing a psychiatrist near the school that I go to, and a family practitioner back at home. My school psychiatrist has began prescribing me ritalin along with other depression medication. My new doctor began prescribing me vyvanse, but the dosage is not good enough to make a difference and I will not see him for a while. Would it be possible for me to see a different doctor on top of this one and purchase the ritalin via cash; and not use my insurance, but instead use a different pharmacy while I continue to receive my vyvanse from my other doctor via insurance? Thank you so much in advance ## Hello, Thomas! How are you? Doing so would be illegal and all controlled substance prescriptions are tracked, so it would eventually catch up with you, even if you pay cash. ...

You need to have a valid prescription from your doctor, then there is a money saving offer you can print to use with it at your pharmacy. However, there is currently no free trial available.

Finding a new doctor who will prescribe Vyvanse in Missouri
Post a Reply
Hello, I am 39 years old and have been prescribed vyvanse for almost 8 years. Being diagnosed with this as an adult was a game changer for me in so many ways and what I have been able to achieve. Unfortunately, I'm tired of feeling like I'm bothering someone no matter if I'm calling to schedule an appointment, have a question regarding medication or God forbid you would like to speak to the doctor themself. Some of the things I have put up with are mind blowing but I don't know how to find another doctor and I'm afraid of being off my medications. I am a better person, mother, friend, daughter ect.. as long as I do not slip up on appointments and continue to take my meds daily. Anyone with any advice is appreciated!
