Vyvanse Insomnia
i know one of the side effects of vyvanse is insomnia. i can't sleep at all on this stuff, usually i get four or five hours of sleep per two nights. on a good day i'll get six or seven but again, that's over the span of two nights. i take vyvanse every morning except for the weekends, and it gives me enough energy that i can function mentally as though i've gotten all the sleep i need, but my body is achy and sore, and it's starting to make me feel a bit ill. Not to mention i have trouble getting out of bed at all on the weekends when i don't take it. all i'm basically asking is this- people with 60-70mgs, if you have the same problem, how do you get to sleep? is there any way to combat the insomnia without nullifying the medicine? I already take Olanzipine (...

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 aggression
Adult daughter showing signs of agression on vyvanse ## I've been on vyvanse for over a year and I just decided to stop using it because of all the anger I felt all the time. I've been off of it for 3 days and my withdrawal symptoms have been horrific. I do not recomend this medication to anyone. ## I am sorry for your experience. It is a horrid drug. Have you seen other blogs concerning it? ## My son 14 years old started out taking vyvanse 20 mg then eventually to 40 mg. He hasn't been on the 40 mg long.All together he has been on the medicine for 2 months.

He is biting at the air and has a few vocal tics.He is highly irritable.I never seen anything l...

Focus/Silliness
my 8yr. old grandson takes vyvanse, he has been on it for almost two years, sometimes he is focused and other times he isn't....................then there are the silly times which lately seems to be a lot at school.................just plain acting silly. the very odd time he has been aggressive..............then I find it goes up and down with reference to his actions...................overall, I guess it is working, there are times when he suffers from stomach pain and I know this is a side affect, I find it suppresses his appetite too along with his growth which I am not happy about. He says kids call him short at school as they are getting taller and he isn't. Just how much does this drug affect their growth. ## I am 30 and just began Vyvanse. HOWEVER as a child I took Rita...

Adult daughter displaying unusual aggression on Vy
My adult daughter is displaying increased agitation and anger since she is on Vyvance. She has been off it for 2 or 3 days and is feeling horrible. I do not think she ever had ADD or ADHD when the doc prescribed the med. I feel she has been displaying symptoms of ADHD - confusion, irritation, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, etc, since being on the Vyvance. Has anyone had similar experiences?? ## Vyvanse contains the active ingredient Lisdexamfetamine, so it is a stimulant, commonly used to treat ADHD and Narcolepsy. However, these can be side effect for some people, even if they do have ADHD. It can cause: insomnia, irritabillity, agression and nervousness. There are non-stimulant options available that may be better for her. Has she spoken to her doctor about these issues? You can read m...

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
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...

free 30 day trial of vyvanse
how can I try a 30 day supply of vyvanse for free ## Hello, Jillian! How are you? 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. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, headache, irritability, insomnia and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

Did I overdose if I took 210m of vyvanse and 60mg of loratab
Am I going to be OK? ## I took 210mg of Vyvanse and took 60mg of loratab all in about 12 hours? I thought my heart was going to jump right out of my skin. I do not have adhd but I am on pain killers for a previous back surgery ## I just want to see my reply! ## Hi Stephanie - I'm not seeing that Vyvanse has a drug interaction with Lortab, but don't rule that out as a possibility. I would like to ask if you were taking the Vyvanse as directed in your prescription? If you took 210mg in one day, was it 3 doses of the 70mg? As to the Lortab, how many tablets did you take over the 12 hours and can you tell me what the amount of Hydrocodone was in each tablet? (Lortab contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone). Lastly, rapid respiration and cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) are sy...

Stopped taking vyvanse…when will I get my natural energy levels back?
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?

Need advice on when and how to withdrawl from taking
This is very helpful. I am 24 and work full time and go to college. I have been taking vyvanse ever since its been on the market. It is amazing and sometimes a blessing but it also is a crutch. I take it during the work week for energy and focus due to ADD and it helps but I find myself needing breaks from it, it makes my heart race and makes me nervous, anxious, and different than i normally am. I worry about being on meds forever and I dont want to take ANYTHING while pregnant so I am wondering if I should stop taking within the next few months or wait til i am finished with school? I am worried I wont be able to function without it. But I think after the withdraws are over, I may have a chance to not rely on it like I always have. Please give me some advice. ## Hello, Meg1989! How ar...

need new psychiatrist in georgia
I'm asking any of you out there,my psychiatrist is moving out of Georgia,I've seen him 3 years and he changed life.i have been ADHD since a kid,and did not stay on proper meds,now I take 50mg vyvanse,50mg,Zoloft,and 1 mg xanax 3 times a day as needed.if anyone out there knows a good psychiatrist who takes Medicare,Medicaid please let me know.thanks James ## Hello, James! How are you? Did you try asking him if he has a colleague he can refer you to? That's usually the no hassle way of getting in good with a new doctor. What general area are you in? That would make it easier for someone to recommend a doctor for you.
