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 ...

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...

dextroamp amphet er 20mg cap
Post a Reply
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.

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
28 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...

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. ...

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 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.

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!

Vyvanse and prosoma 500
1 Reply RSS
can I take vyvanse 50 mg and prosoma 500 together ## Hello, Meep meep! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between Vyvanse and Carisoprodol, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA classifies Vyvanse as a stimulant that carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia and anorexia. Cariosoprodol is classified as a muscle relaxant its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

I picked up my vyvanse last night and ibuprofen someone stole my medicine will welfare replace them if I file a police report Deb ## Hi Deb, Sorry to hear about your medication being stolen. I did a bit of research on the matter and while I cannot speak for Welfare directly, information I'm finding on the topic of stolen meds suggests that you will have to file a police report for controlled substances such as Vyvanse, along with filing a request with your physician for an early refill. I believe you just need the patient's name, patient's ID number, medication(s) requested and police report handy in order to submit such a request. It is also important to note that some practices do not provide early refills at their discretion and may only offer a plan on how to manage the ...
