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
154 Replies RSS
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...
