Vyvanse Overview

Lisdexamfetamine (contracted from L-lysine-dextroamphetamine) is a prodrug of the central nervous system (CNS) stimulant dextroamphetamine, a phenethylamine of the amphetamine class that is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and binge eating disorder.[6][7] Its chemical structure consists of dextroamphetamine coupled with the essential amino acid L-lysine. Lisdexamfetamine itself is inactive prior to its absorption and the subsequent rate-limited enzymati...

free 30 day trial for Vyvanse?
17 Replies RSS Share
Does anyone know if the free 30 day trial for Vyvanse is still available? I cannot find it anywhere. My prescription was $250 last month. ## For that I think you can go to vyvansesavings.com. That's the manufacturer's site. ## This site also offers visitors a free prescription savings card which I believe should work with Vyvanse among a number of other medications. ## Is the 30 day free trial still available for the vyvanse this month? Can't afford to get them filled. ## I need a free trial to this med helps well the cost way too much ## Yes there is a rx savings card for a free 30-day trial floating around, I actually just picked one up on my doctors office the other day - I guess the pharmaceutical rep. for Shire makes frequent visits lol. I believe this coupon was recent...

Vyvanse patient assistance
1 Reply RSS Share
I've been taking vyvanse for my entire life and I've been without my vyvanse for 2 days now and it's affecting my new job already and I'm panicking, my prescription is 303$ to pick up at my pharmacy and that's the cheapest of all pharmacies in my area and I don't get my new insurance until may and I can really use the free 30 day trial of vyvanse if anyone can help me out. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to lower the cost to 50$ or $60 because that's all I have to spend right now. But the 30 day trial would be a God send. I wont have insurance until may 2018 and I just don't know what to do, I've tried everything. Thank you. ## The manufacturer Shire does have an assistance program for this medication. You can call them to see if y...

Vyvanse vs Mydayis
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can share their experience switching from Vyvanse 70mg once daily to Mydayis (50mg) and if it is a better medication as opposed to Vyvanse? Please respond if anyone out there has experienced this switch as I am considering it somewhat although, I have no major issues with Vyvanse. ## If Vyvanse is working for you, why switch? I am just curious. Mydays is most similar to Adderall, and is used to treat the same conditions, but overall it really depends on what works for you, and what is safest for you. Has your doctor suggest you make a change? The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, insomnia, mood changes, and weight loss. ## Hi, Verwon! Thanks for the reply. To answ...

Vyvanse capsule
3 Replies RSS Share
I have two kinds of vyvanse...one is 30mg and the other is 50mg. Now i want to know if they are real cuz the powder inside isn't bitter. In fact its bittersweet. Not overly sweet. I've had vynanse many times. But i forgot the taste. Anybody know the real taste of vyvanse? ## From what I could gather, legitimate Vyvanse is reported by many patients as being "bitter", and in some cases might even leave a bad metallic taste in the mouth. However, when certain inactive ingredients are present, I hear that it may actually come off as being sweet. Does anyone else find this to be true as well? If there aren't any markings on the capsule or some other feasible way to identify the substance and dosage, your best bet would probably be to have the contents analyzed by a lab fo...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half
22 Replies RSS Share
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...

blue capsule 3060 ????
4 Replies RSS Share
I got the blue 20 mg 3060 capsule what of i took it either 70mg Vyvanse? I truly hope that they work. from the bad reviews I'm afraid to even try one. someone please give me advice ## Are you referring to the blue capsule with the "R 3060" imprint? That's closest match I'm seeing online, and it reportedly contains 20mgs of time-released mixed Amphetamine salts, manufactured by Actavis. I don't know who told you it was 70mgs of Vyvanse, but if you got them from overseas or off other shady dealers there's no telling what might be in it, and that's just a risk that you should've thought about before buying it. I would probably take it as a sign that your body is naturally putting up its own defense to save you from taking something that you shouldn't...

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...
