vyvanse urine drug test
1 Reply RSS
I took 40mg of vyvanse on Saturday and had a u/a on Tuesday. Will I pass? ## I know this is an older thread but as many people may have similar questions regarding their (illicit or legal prescription) use of amphetamines and what results can be expected regarding urinalysis drug toxicology reports, I figured I'd post this: the answer to this specific question would depend on the frequency that the inquirer uses (used) vyvanse. Their dosage (40mg) was a pretty low therapeutic dosage and based on the way they phrased the question, I'd assume that they didn't take vyvanse on a regular basis, but rather a PRN (as needed) prescription basis or an intermediate illicit basis for recreational purposes (again pretty low dose to obtain any recreational value). Either way, if my assum...

Withdrawal from Vyvanse experience
147 Replies RSS
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
37 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 30 day trial for Vyvanse?
8 Replies RSS
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 vyvansesavings.com. 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. I believe this coupon was recent...

Having high anxiety near the end of the day while coming down off of vyvanse. Has anyone had this problem?
2 Replies RSS
I suffer from high anxiety, ADHD and minor depression. Last week I talked to my doctor and he prescribed me 50 mg Pristiq for the anxiety and 30 mg Vyvanse for ADHD. I have been taking both as directed, the Vyvance in the morning and the Pristiq at night before bed. So far the Vyvanse is working well for me. I feel much more focused, have more energy, and have been more social and more productive at work- just an overall better mood. The problem is that about 7 or 8 hrs after taking the Vyvanse it starts wearing off and I start feeling extremely anxious and can't sleep. The doctor said the Pristiq takes at least 2-3 weeks to start working, so I'm not sure how that will effect me yet. I read that sleeplessness is a common side effect of both of these drugs, but I can't stand ...

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. Well the scary part is it gave him full blown tourette syndrome.He has been suffering terrible tics and muscle body jerking.

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
4 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...

Has anyone had this problem. I had been on adderral for a couple of month and then was taken off of adderal and put on vyvanse. Since then, I have notice my pH vaginal balance is off. Can anyone tell me, if this is a side effect? This is effecting me and my partner. ## Samantha, I think I'm having the same issue. I struggle to keep my vaginal pH balanced.

It is affecting my relationship with my husband as well. Im thinking of going off of vyvanse but it really helps me with ADHD like no other stimulant h...

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!

vivan

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?

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...

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

free coupons vyvanse
1 Reply RSS
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...

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...
