Vyvanse makes me feel...
9 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...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
1 Reply 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.

Vyvanse and Adderall Lab Urine Test
1 Reply RSS
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? ## Did you pass you test? I'm in the same boat. Will a lab detect the difference in vyvanse and adderall? I'm prescribed vyvanse and took 30mg of adderall 3 times.

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
35 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 and sleeping due to being taken off of them
1 Reply RSS
My boyfriend has been on vyvanse for 8 months. Then his new doctor took him off of them and put him on a depression med. All he wants to do is sleep. He doesn't clean or anything any more. He said he wants his life back but he doesn't know what to say to his doctor to get them back. ## Hello, Ana! How is your boyfriend doing? How long ago was the change to his medications made? He could be experiencing withdrawal effects from stopping the Vyvanse, since it's a stimulant, as well as side effects from starting the antidepressant. He may just need to wait a few weeks for his body to adjust, unless his doctor feels otherwise. Other symptoms, as listed by the FDA, may include dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes.

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

Vyvanse S489 20mg capsule contents
2 Replies RSS
Is there powder or beads in the S489 20mg capsules? ## Hi cricket, Since there aren't any photos online showing these capsules being open, I suppose the only way to know for sure would be to contact the manufacturer directly about this. If it helps any I went ahead and posted the manufacturer's contact page below: shire.com/shireplc/en/contactus Manufacturer: Shire US Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 59417-0102 Do you happen to have any of these pills in your on hand? If so, I'd even try shaking it to see what kind of sound it makes. You can generally tell the difference from powder vs beads in this manner. Hope this helps! ## Hmmm, I see a photo on this site of the capsules but unfortunately they are not transparent so I cannot tell what is actually inside them. Found the pic...

vyvanse dose drop
1 Reply 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....

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 overdose

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 ...

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?

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...
