Vyvanse Withdrawals

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't perform as needed.

Anyway, does anybody have any coping mechanisms to deal with the withdrawals? I am so tired that I could pass out at my desk right now. I have no energy for anything and might nap in my car for lunch. I have an appointment with a new doctor on Tuesday and the same facility offers therapy so I will be doing that as well, but I will never take ANYTHING that has Amphetamines in it ever again.

I would try to do some calming excercises like yoga in your spare time, drinking tea and coffee or other things with caffeine, no sodas though. I have recently just started going through withdrawal myself because I ran out, and so far drinking tea has helped me a lot, not so much with the yoga though, but maybe it would work for you in case this happens again.
