I don't bother to check capsules anymore.

Thank you for all the information, Vyvanse is the first med I've taken for my ADD.

Their patent can't run out soon enough!!

Re: Lucielou (# 19)

Lol, I agree that a pharmacist tampering with meds would not be so ignorant not to make it look as it did before tampering. It’s not hard to fill something containing a white powder with another white powder. Nor would it be hard to turn the capsule back to its original alignment; even the pharmacy techs could figure that out!! S*** even a “powder skimming drug dealer” would know to do that! I know most pharmacies have cameras now so if this was happening consistently the drug company/pharmacist could look into the tapes to see if they were in fact tampered with on their watch!! If you buy a box of sugar it will say even if the product is not as full as your previous the product is weighed precisely for the correct measurement. They don’t eyeball anything stamp a oz/lb label on it and hope they are right.

Hi everyone, I've taken Vyvance for 1 1/2 years but the last 6 months was the first time I decided I did better taking 1/2 of the contents of the capsule in the morning and one if the early afternoon. Typically they have been very full and I have to be careful when taking the capsule a part to not spill the contents. The last few prescriptions have had a lot of descrepency in fullness, with this current Rx having some capsules with nothing in it at all, and about 3-4 with barely anything. I debated about telling my CVS pharmacist about it because it would sound like I had emptied the contents myself and then told him they were empty! But being that I have gone to this pharmacy location for 17 years and I had never questioned medication before I decided to try. The pharmacist gave me some run around answer, basically saying I would have to take it up with Shire. This was disturbing as the pharmacy should 'stand behind' the products they dispense, at least doing a quality control while counting out the capsules. They could shine a light behind the capsules to see that they are giving their customers half empty capsules. Not sure of my next step but I may try using the "I am the grand-niece of" the former head of Johnson and Johnson. Maybe that will get Shire's attention. I will keep you posted.

Re: CarolynHR (# 24)

I would start opening them all right in front of the pharmacist so they know nothing was tampered with by you. For some to have nothing in it is NOT ok. Even if u bring it up to the pharmacist they should be able to watch the camera’s to see if, when and by who this is happening. But your right they will probably think you are trying to pull a fast one on them with out even giving it a 2nd thought unless u open them there in front of the actual pharmacist as a witness.

I have had the same issue but I personally don't think you can blame shire because pills are infused with the powder by machine. Each machine is specifically programmed. So basically all I'm saying is that it's likely not the company and more likely to either be condensed due to too much shelf life or someone in your life may be stealing some.

Read the earlier comments. Lawsuit is the only way. Shire is ripping us off on purpose.
