Kansas Says:

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. Any thoughts??

I just took my first Vyvanse 50 mg dose. I am 23 and been taking adderall for 8 years! I do not feel anything from this vyvanse and I am thinking of taking one of my short acting 20 mg adderall with it.

I had the exact same experience for a atleast a month taking vyvanse 30 mg. I am still taking it though no longer feel that way....I am glad I stuck with it because it works better for me than any other stimulant though I am having another issue that I'm not sure is related to the vyvanse or not...but for ADHD and anxiety I have found this medicine to be amazing...

My son started Vyvanse about a month ago. His first week he was sleepy all the time. His first two days on it, he took 4 naps each day! All was balanced out after the first two weeks.

I am on day 1 of 30 mg, took it 3 hours ago. I am not sleepy at all, I do feel a slight weirdness in my chest, but my mind is crystal clear, very controlled, and I really feel focused. I do have to say the only weirdness as of yet is the kind excited feel in my chest, almost like anxiety, but nothing else with it. I have multi tasked about 20 things this morning without stress or issue: answer phone, fill out paperwork, schedule appts, text 2 people about plans, typing emails. I do not feel tired, I feel very controlled. I'm heading out to a doctor's appt to try EMDR: eye movement desentatization and reprocessing. Here we go!

I had the same issue, but it resolved in about 3 weeks. I had another experience so my Dr increased my Wellbutrin to 150 mg 3x per day

I'm on 30mg and I'd say it took 10-14 days for my body to level out.. initially my anxiety in my stomach was high. I find if I take it early by 8am no later I sleep fine plus I must eat and be drinking enough water. Just recently I was dizzy and didn't feel good then it hit me that I had not eaten or drank anything all morning yet took my medication (wellbrutrin and vyvanse)..last few days I'm focused on drinking 8oz at least an hour and eating every 2hrs..yes I feel better, yes I have slept better.
