Common Questions and Answers about Ativan and vyvanse

avinza

I am currently taking vyvanse in the morning and 0.5 mg ativan at night for anxiety. I am going for a pre employment drug screening next week, and I was wondering if the legal use of amphetamines and benzodiazepenes can be used against me. I know companies are really concerned about illegal drug use, but I just wondered if they can see the need for prescriptions as a weakness and withold the offer because of it .
after talking with my counselor i started back on Add meds 2 days ago starting at 50mg Vyvanse. Once again just as focalin did this made me very sick last night causing the palor and tremor just as focalin had. I experienced twitches and insomnia last night got 2 hours of sleep but and 5 the night before but am awake but i feel terrible. I really need some educated advice on some proper medication choices to talk with my doctor about.
I am a 48 yr old female who has recently been dx with ADHD (although, this was nothing new to me, Ive been this way my whole life!) I was prescribed Vyvanse 70mg qd and I also take 1 mg Ativan at bedtime so my mind can "cut off" and I can finally sleep. Im doing well on these meds but I have noticed that I am developing kerotoses on my face! While I do have a hx of this (mainly on my back) Im wondering if any of these meds can cause an increase in the development of kerotoses?
i take prozac, abilify, xanax, and vyvanse (for adhd). just keep trying and pray if you believe in god, it helps me and couldn't hurt anyway.

Went to ER, given atavan, and got better. The next day he had one so bad he stopped breathing and was put on a ventilator. He's been in the hospital 3 times during the past month and on ventilator 3 times. It starts with tightening in chest, like a belt tightening. Then his fingers start to draw up, and he feels like he's breathing thru a straw. Arms draw to body, neck draws down to right. His chest tightens so much he stops breathing.
The medication I take is Lamictal, geodon, lexopro, ativan, Benzotropine (for tremors), Dicyclomine (for Ibs) ,Ranatidine(heart burn), Vyvanse(add) I have been diagnosed with Add, odd,ocd, ptsd, Borderline bipolar disorder, I have many phobias as well. I take a lot of meds and my psychologist seems to think that the reason I am using is to self medicate. Which makes sense to me because when I am "High" I have no anxiety about anything I am fearless.
I'm the same way i have such a high tolerance for all medications i'm on 2mg ativan 3 times a day and make no improvement at all. i too take meds for add vyvanse and am on the highest dose. it seem no matter what i take it has to be a high dose to help. i have chronic pain and am perscribed tramadol 50 mg and i have to take 7 for them to even stasrt working the 2 every 2 hrs to continue with the pain relief. I hate it so bad cuz i run out then have nothing for the pain.
Nothing's fun unless I take vyvanse while doing it, otherwise I just rest in bed and try to shutdown my mind. Suicidal thoughts occur every night, I just want my hell to end. Can anyone tell me, anyone ... What the **** Is wrong with me?
I managed to work most of the time when depression and anxiety didn't have me completely down and out. I still have some problem with depression and anxiety but am much better. The agoraphobia is still a problem. If I'm with someone, I manage much better, but when I have to go someplace on my own, I often just can't do it. I take an antidepressent but it doesn't seem to help the agoraphobia. Has anyone on this forum found a med that specifically helps agoraphobia?
My ferritin # was 4 and it should be atleast 20 min. She helped me sort out my medications and my supplements and I had things like vitamin B12 shots and acupuncture for the anxiety that really helped. Between a naturopath and a really great pharmacist(whom know way better than a doctor what the right mix of meds are) should help you out. However DO NOT stop taking your meds cold turkey and do not add in things like St.Johns Wort etc without being off the anti-depressants for awhile.
I just walked in and told him I had ADHD and he started me on 20 mg. I was already on lexapro and Ativan then. Now my nerves are shot and I start the day off with 30 mg adderoll , 1 mg Ativan , and 20 mg lexapro. I wash it down with vodka and coke. And that's the beginning of my day I've been doing this for almost 3 years and some days I don't take the aderall so I can eat, but I always end up way short before next refill. Then I get vyvance from my neighbor .
the stimulant would cut through the sedation and help with your energy level. Vyvanse is my favorite because it has a long, slow release pattern and doesn't 'drop off' at the end of the day. The second thought is to consider buprenorphine for your pain medication; it tends to cause less sedation than other opiates. On the other hand it does lead to tolerance, but all pain medications do that. Other ideas from readers?
Today they are more likely to hand out Xanax, Klonopin, and Ativan. These drugs are highly addictive and easily abused. They are very dangerous when combined with alcohol (potentially lethal) and withdrawing rapidly from these medications is incredibly hazardous to one’s health. For decades now we’ve been handing out Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta and more recently, Vyvanse for Attention Deficit Disorder.
I was treated with IV metoprolol for the high blood pressure and heartrate and given ativan to help keep me relaxed while we waited it out. I also had hyperreflexia as well. later that night it happened again not as severe and the ativan was repeated. By the next morning I was feeling better, however when I walked or do little activity my heartrate would increase to 120's. It remained like that for about a week. over the course of the next 3-4 weeks I still had that anxiousnedd in my chest.
I found this article and thought you might find it interesting................ Peace Greenlydia By John M. Grohol, Psy.D. These are the top 25 psychiatric medications by number of U.S. prescriptions dispensed in 2009, according to IMS Health. I’ve also provided their 2005 ranking. To put the percent change into perspective, the U.S. total population rose approximately 4 percent from 2005 to 2009. 2009 Rank 2005 Rank Brand name (generic name) Used for… U.S. Prescriptions (% change) 1. 1.
I've been taking Lexipro and ativan for a month now and that has been pretty effective at stopping the panic and chest pain. While I hated the idea of taking one drug to cure the side effects of another, I recommend you get treatment for panic disorder. While my case isn't nearly as bad, I can empathize with you completely. This is definitely the worst period in my life. I wish I never took that damn "wonder drug" in the first place.
ADHD, 1 50mg tab with breakfast OxyIR: Narcotic pain killer, 1-2 15mg tabs q4-6hrs Here and there, Christina will get Vicodin, percocet, dilaudid, kadian, etc to ensure, or at least try to not run out. Well, here is how Christina takes them on a regular basis with no incidents (i.e. Normal housework and such): 30-60mg in the morning; 60-90mg during the day; 15-30mg with sleeping meds; and who knows in the evening.
In fact, one reason that a med like Vyvanse was developed was that teenagers were getting their hands on adderall, etc and ingesting the powder. A lot of it really comes down to being informed and as specialmom said, "being a good advocate for themselves." Having said all of that, I would agree that your doctor's "bedside manner" was far from perfect. And that is certainly when (if you are lucky enough to have the option) to find another doctor.
says, but could be pre-menopausal or straight up menopause and Ativan-.5 mg when needed for sleep, Adderall-20mg 2x per day. Been trying to research what the combo of all of these produces to no avale...Just so ready "to go" to a less complicated place...so Thank you...you post probably caused me pause....to stay. that I'm NOT alone (those around me are not REALLY here) If you know what I mean. No insurance has prevented getting mental help...
I stayed in bed ALL DAY because I ate a snickers bar and got tired and passed out. I do not take Ativan on a regular basis. Not at all today. I took it for SIX years and believe me I celebrated the day I was off completely and I hate that I have taken it for the last week. But today I didn't and I feel ok with it. Plus I quit smoking about three weeks ago when I got sick and vomited for four days. Everyone thinks I had a stomach flu but I know better.
Vyvanse (for chronic fatigue), Omeprazole, Topiramate, Baclofen (both pain meds), Lorazepam (Ativan - anti-anxiety), Ambien. Interferon (a form of chemo) is the main med for Hep C that I treated with. New patients are lucky as they are trying to do away with it as it is so damaging! Back when I treated the usual was, at the longest, 42 weeks but due to a lab error I was on treatment for 72 weeks! Ribavirin is the other main med. It is a booster med to the interferon.
I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.
Unfortunately, that did not last. I started having the same signs again, and when I tested it was positive again. And ever since I can't get it to be negative again, meaning the candida if that is what I have has become resistant to the supplements that I was using. As I started a new treatment, I will take the test this week-end to see if there is any progress.
