Vyvanse affecting a woman's PH balance. HELP!

Has anyone had this problem? I had been on adderall for a couple of month and then was taken off of adderall 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 affecting 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 ...

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...

Vyvanse & Zegerid

My doctor informed me if I'd take the two together, it would enhance and prolong the effects of Vyvanse. I've tried it and it's true, it really does enhance & prolong the effects. Zegerid is available OTC and is an acid reducer and works quite well.

Withdrawal from Vyvanse experience

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...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half

Some of my capsules are filled all the way some are filled just a little and some are just half of the way which is the proper amount? ## Hi Kim, From what you've stated, it seems like they've been tampered with. I would probably call a local pharmacy and find out if these irregularities are normal. Something just doesn't sound right about each capsule containing what appears to be different doses; let alone the thought of being shorted on the full amount. Did you get this filled at a licensed pharmacy or come about it through some other means? I'm just curious because that would probably help determine their legitimacy. Thanks for any additional info you might have. ## I just got 30 day supply of 50 mg vyvanse & over half of my pills were half filled. This really ma...

vyvanse dose

Should my friend go to the emergency room? Between yesterday and the day before my friend ingested 280mg and about 140mg of vyvanse. she hasn't been to sleep for two days now, she isn't prescribed them so she doesn't take them on the daily. She still couldn't sleep last night so ita two full days shes been awake and can't really eat. So far today (its ten in the morning) she hasn't taken anymore the last time she took one (it was a full 70mg by mouth) was about six p.m. yesterday. The question is, since yesterday has passed does she need to go to the emergency room, like have to because she works tonight and if she does will they baker act her? We are in Florida ## Hello, Flowerchild! How is she doing? She needs to be checked out by a doctor. Taking such high amo...

My Vyvanse accidental overdose story

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...

Trouble finding a new doctor to refill my Vyvanse

My current doctor is unfortunately in the hospital very ill which forced me to find a new doctor to refill my Vyvanse and let me tell ya...... it's been extremely difficult and still have had no luck. Let me just tell y'all what one Doctor told me when I informed her I needed my Vyvanse filled..... She informed me instead, that this is a touchy subject for her on a personal level, as her son is addicted to Crystal Meth and compared Vyvanse to Crystal Meth. When I asked her if she is comparing Vyvanse to Crystal Meth and she replied.....Yes! Now, isn't that unethical?? ## The unethical part is refusing you treatment based on her personal bias. Comparing that medication to methamphetamine is uneducated. Maybe she needs some continuing education classes? The licensing board sho...
