Vyvanse overdose, without going to the hospital
8 Replies RSS
First and foremost let me say that if u are reading this STOP TAKING VYVANSE IN LARGE DOSES and dont let Google tell u ur going to die, u won't.. So now that that is out of the way let me tell u my overdose experience and how I dealt with it without going to the hospital. I am 24 yrs old, weight is about 156lbs, height is 4'11. I had intended on only taking the drug to lose weight, however like u who's reading this I have become addicted and upped the dose till I again like u had to frantically go searching the internet to see if I was going to die. Well let me say this I am not a Dr and this is my own personal experience so after reading this if u are still extremely worried about ur health always go to the Dr. Ok let's get started... I have taken up to 560mg of vyvanse...

what's the difference between vyvanse and adderall
3 Replies RSS
What is the difference between vyvanse and adderall and what will it show up different in a urine test ## I would say vyvanse is a better bet. ## On the drug test, probably. Veneyase(sic) effect are similiar to dexedrine without the euphoria. As w/ the mixed salts, 'it keeps on going'. ## Lol... There's not much difference! Vyvaynse uses amphetamines as their active ingredient but in much much lower strength! I do not see how it would test different in a urine test either? However the spelling does not use amphetamine/dextroamphetamine salts! they use amphetamine... Do you know what Dextro means? Its just the amphetamine that effects your "Right brain" side & actually although it says amphetamine on a script its really (Crap I can't think right now) but its c...

Can my Dr. tell the difference between Vyvanse and Adderall..
2 Replies RSS
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? ## If I have been taking adderal and just got a prescription for vyvanse and I have a ya test for pain management will they be able to tell the difference between adderal and vyvanse on a drug screening that is sent to the lab ## No they can't tell!! They both use amphetamine as their active ingredient!! I'm looking at both ingredients now!

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 more affordable I could be prescribed? ## Is it similar to adderall or is it 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? I hate being a total zombie. It...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
3 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 subutex and librium
1 Reply RSS
What kind of reaction am I to expect from taking 30mg of vyvanse & 16mg of subutex &125mg of librium on a daily basis? I feel well balanced out, outgoing & confident. I am well focused & Function on the top of my game. ## The main concern is the mixing of the Librium and Vyvanse, since they can both increase serotonin levels, if they go too high, it can lead to a possibly fatal condition called serotonin syndrome. That doesn't mean they can't be taken together, successfully, but that your doctor must carefully calculate your doses and should be monitoring your regularly to watch for any possible problems. Side effects may include dizziness, insomnia, nervousness, mood swings and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

Adult daughter displaying unusual aggression on Vy
4 Replies RSS
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...

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.

Vyvanse and Adderall Lab Urine Test
2 Replies 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. ## Did you past your test will adderal and vyvanse come back the same if sent to lab

Vyvanse possible Treament for Depression
36 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...

free coupons vyvanse

My dr gave me a packet which contained a free months trial of Vyvanse. I dropped it off at CVS in Platte City, MO & it isn't in my file. Help! ## Hi Kimberly, Sorry to hear about what had happened. Because it sounds like someone at the pharmacy misplaced the packet, I would encourage you to contact your doctor and explain to him/her what happened. Your doctor can call the pharmacy to verify that they don't have it on file. At this point I don't get the sense that he/she would suspect abuse, selling, etc if it's just an "information packet or coupons" for filling the trial prescription...? One would also think the pharmacy has cameras everywhere should something like this happen. Perhaps a last resort may be to ask them to look at their video surveillance from...

Help. Vyvanse was a dream come true for me for a year, but it's not working any more.
4 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...

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 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...

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.

Vyvanse S489 20mg capsule contents

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

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....

Vyvanse 70 mg for ADHD

I just got a new job and scheduled to take a drug test at 3:30pm. I take Vyvanse 70mg 1 tab first thing in the morning! I've been taking this for years to help with my ADHD! 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.
