2 scripts with different dosages and quantities of Vyvanse
Post a Reply
Okay, so I have a prescription that is exactly 1 month old tomorrow. It is for seven Vyvanse 50 mg and in 2 days I will be getting my normal monthly script for 60 mg Vyvanse. Can I fill the 50 mg for 7 days today without having a problem filling my original script of 60 mg for 30 days?

Do 50mg vyvanse taste like sugar? ## It's probably too late but anyways... they do/did make 70mg vyvance my brother was prescribed these back in late 2014 ## As for the taste I'm curious. I thought they tasted salty but I opened my bottle (it looked weird) and decided to taste them and it was like semi sweet flour, lol.

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

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...

Did I overdose if I took 210m of vyvanse and 60mg of loratab
17 Replies RSS
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...

My Vyvanse accidental overdose story
14 Replies RSS
First and foremost let me say that if u are reading this STOP TAKING VYVANSE IN LARGE DOSES and talk to your doctor... So now that that is out of the way let me tell u my overdose experience and how I dealt with it. 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 dependent 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 in 48 hr period that's 280mg in 24hrs. U probably haven...

Withdrawal from Vyvanse experience

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
42 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...

No weight loss with Vyvanse
1 Reply RSS
I began Vyvanse 4 months ago to help with weight loss and binge eating. The first month was great and I dropped 10 lbs with no side effects. Months 2-4 have also gone well. No binge eating, no craving. In fact I probably consume around 1000 calories a day. But I have only lost 2 lbs in three months. My doc is mystified. All my blood work was fantastic. No thyroid problem at all nor any other reason why I shouldn't be losing weight. Not a heavy drinker, smoke occasionally and am otherwise healthy. Has anyone else had this experience? ## @Feeling desperate, Is weight loss an off-label use for Vyvanse (Lisdexamfetamine Dimesylate)? I realize it's marketed for treating ADHD and binge eating disorder, however I wasn't sure of the mechanism of action by which weight loss is achiev...

vyvanse capsule
2 Replies RSS
I have two kinds of vyvanse...one is 30mg and the other is 50mg. Now i want to know if they are real cuz the powder inside isn't bitter. In fact its bittersweet. Not overly sweet. I've had vynanse many times. But i forgot the taste. Anybody know the real taste of vyvanse? ## From what I could gather, legitimate Vyvanse is reported by many patients as being "bitter", and in some cases might even leave a bad metallic taste in the mouth. However, when certain inactive ingredients are present, I hear that it may actually come off as being sweet. Does anyone else find this to be true as well? If there aren't any markings on the capsule or some other feasible way to identify the substance and dosage, your best bet would probably be to have the contents analyzed by a lab fo...

vyvanse urine drug test
2 Replies 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...

Can Vyvanse cause a false positive for meth when taking a drug test? ## No, Vyvanse hasn't been known to cause false positives for anything else. Learn more Vyvanse details here.

vyvanse withdrawals
1 Reply RSS
Good Morning Everyone, I have been on Vyvanse 50 mg for about 7 months. Took it everyday. My company that I work for changed their insurance policy where I now have a 3,000 deductible before copays hit. Vyvanse became 294.00 a month. Couldn't afford it. My doctor (former doctor who never listened to me) tried to put me on Dexedrine twice a day as a suitable replacement. I am currently on Wellbutrin XL 150 mg for my depression and anxiety (and I hear that it helps with ADD) but I am on day 1 of my cold turkey stoppage and I feel like a truck hit me. I thought Vyvanse helped but it really hurt me too. I became irritable, wasn't sleeping, and experienced Amphetamine Induced Erectile Dysfunction. I have been having problems for a few weeks. Twice I was with my girlfriend and couldn...

Vyvanse and a 9 panel urine drug screen
1 Reply RSS
I stopped taking Vyvanse for 5 days then took one 40 mg cap on a Thursday, then didn't take anything for four days. Will it show up in a urine screen? ## It is a stimulant, so yes, it might, according to FDA warnings. Was it prescribed for you? If so, you only need to inform them of that, when you are submitting your sample, so they are aware that you have been taking it. In such cases, results for controlled substances are usually thrown out, unless they have not been prescribed. Is there anything else I can help with?

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
21 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...

So she takes 140mg of vyvanse
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone heard of such a high dose being prescribed ?? ## Hi Bry, According to the US National Library of Medicine, the maximum recommended daily dose of Vyvanse is 70 mg. They go on to state that "doses greater than 70 mg/day of Vyvanse have not been studied." Ref: dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/lookup.cfm?setid-fed5402283f6#nlm34068-7 With that being said, it sounds like her doctor is either over prescribing or she's over using the amount he did prescribe. This has potential to be habit forming and very addicting, so I'd continue to keep an eye on her if you feel like she's digging herself into a deeper hole. How long has she been taking Vyvanse for? ## Vyvance, a prodrug usually seen as a long acting capsule or time realease patch is absorbed over a period of any...

free 30 day trial for Vyvanse?
14 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...
