Vyvanse Overview

Lisdexamfetamine (contracted from L-lysine-dextroamphetamine) is a prodrug of the central nervous system (CNS) stimulant dextroamphetamine, a phenethylamine of the amphetamine class that is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and binge eating disorder.[4][5] Its chemical structure consists of dextroamphetamine coupled with the essential amino acid L-lysine.

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
11 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...

early refill of vyvanse
2 Replies RSS
Doctor took me off vyvanse due to BP issues and put me on low dose of Adderall IR and so I threw the remaining script away for vyvanse, two weeks later put me back on it because BP was resolved and Adderall had bad side effects. My ? Is what do I do regarding pharmacy to get the new script filled? Anyone been thru this before? ## Usually, they will call your doctor to have it authorized, because they can explain what happened. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The amount of times I have been told that I am "too early" to fill a stimulant prescription is breath-taking. If i'm even one day ear...

Common side effects may include: nausea, headache, insomnia and anorexia.

Help. Vyvanse was a dream come true for me for a year, but it's not working any more.
6 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 was prescribed Vyvanse to help give me energy because I am diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I was prescribed Hydrocodon to help with the pain but have not taken it with Vyvanse because I worry about drug I interactions. Would it be safe?
