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. I see that noone's responded here. If you find out something, please post... and I'll do the same. Thanks.

I have been having the same problem since I stated taking vyvanse approximately six months ago. I am on my fifth or sixth antibiotic for it and also take probiotics. 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 has!!!!

Do either of you also drink coffee? If so, a combination of the vyvanse with the coffee may be the culprit. I'd been BV free for a couple of weeks (had been taking vyvanse) but no coffee during that time. This week I missed a day of taking femdophilus and had coffee the 2 following days and the BV is back with a vengeance. I plan to monitor this for the next few days... And I'll check back in.

I have been taking Vyvanse for a couple of years now. I was having chronic sinus infections and multiple rounds of antibiotics over a 6 mos period. Since then my system has never recovered and I have chronic vaginal discharge, itching and burring. Forget sex that only makes it worse. I decreased my dose from 70mg to half that and increased my water intake to between 48 oz and 64 oz a day...guess what it worked...my vagina was no longer red and itchy and burning with a constant discharge. It does appear Vyvase does some how make the system off balance but I have been doing weeks of research to tie it all together...i have also starting a ph balanced water, and superfood supplements...I still have the jaw clenching, jitters and rapid heart rate, but it no longer makes me sick to my stomach. However it also doesn't seem to have the same ability to stabilize my concentration.

I have been on vyvanse for a year or 2 now. I quit smoking and drinking alcohol.. i let go of candy and soda..i even work out and have a vegetarian diet.. my biggest issue is not enough water and too much coffee. I started taking acidophilus and drinking more water...i even use rephresh gel & hygenic wash IF i don't drink enough water or take acidophilus i notice vaginal discomfort. It is so interesting that other women are saying this, because i was worried but knew i should be okay because i never have unprotected intercourse or have a million partners.

I carry two licenses. Pharmacy and nursing. I've been on Vyvanse 30mg for approximately a yr. I am now 39 so I thought it very odd that about four months after taking it I noticed vaginal dryness and wondered if I was premenopausal...again seemed crazy as both mom and grandmother menstruated until 56 yrs old. This baffled me and obviously is rather uncomfortable. I wasn't intimately active and therefore no infections. I drink way too much coffee and not enough water at work. I checked my blood work and my estradiol was out of wack. Seemed very low. My period then stopped for 3 months??? At this point I felt inflamed, red, itchy, no discharge. I decided to stop vyvanse cold turkey. I really had no issues other than I felt like I was in a fog for a few weeks, tired, however no other issues. The good news is within 2 weeks, I did get my period. My labs have returned to normal and no more dryness. I'm not certain if drinking more water would have helped as I was desperate to return to normal and didn't increase water intake first. I never felt edgy on this medication and I actually had a better appetite. Regular bowel movements, focus was great. It's really quite a shame about all of this unfortunate symptoms we are having and I haven't read much to confirm this other than this thread. I was very grateful to hear I wasn't the only one feeling this way. Thanks for your input ladies.

Hi. I have been taking vyvance, then adderall for one year now. While on vyvance for the first seven months, I noticed my throat always had mucous at the back of it. When I woke in the morning, I would gag until I blew my nose and coughed up the mucous in my throat. I had never before had this experience.
Once I switched to adderrall, the mucous in the throats improved greatly, but somehow, it has affected my vaginal ph. I have had yeast infections three out of the last four months!?!? I am 46 years old and In my entire life, I have only had one yeast infection.
When I asked my doctor about the yeast infections, he told me he had never heard that before as a side effect.
I am surprised such a popular medication has these side effects, and the doctor who prescribed it is unaware of them? Obviously women are having these issues.
Also, my eyes are dry and itchy all the time. What gives?

So relieved to see this! I'm 29 and have had weird symptoms for about a year. It took its toll on my marriage and I went to my OB out of desperation! She did a blood panel and my estradiol was ULTRA low. I used Premarin cream for 2 weeks and I'm a new woman. I am really dependent on vyvanse (I use low dose 30mg )for anxiety and don't want to go off because I feel very balanced right now but also am terrified the recurring infections and low estradiol will happen again!? Any ideas from a medical standpoint on how to avoid this!?

I also take vyvanse and seem to have to work more than I should to maintain a good balance. I find that I am dry all over, like my eyes, skin, and mouth as well if I do not drink far more water than recommended. (Maybe you too?) What I can tell you works for sure though is apple cider vinegar. It's wonderful for you. You can take a little (half and half with water) in liquid form or take a pill (I do this daily to maintain and it really helps!) also you can put a cup or two in the bath and let it kinda - get in there as you soak- so to speak lol. I use it when I take bubble baths (wine please!) and you can't smell it at all since it's so diluted.

Hope that helps one of you! It's the cheap and easy way (along with yogurt for good probiotics and flora throughout) to maintain a good feminine balance. :)
