Common Questions and Answers about Depression medication vyvanse

depression

There's a blurb in the drug insert about developing depression symptoms while taking Vyvanse. You need to call your doctor and tell her what's going on. Whether or not you have adhd is something you'll have to discuss with your doctor, as she's your best resource. Some people try one medication and it doesn't do a thing for them. If Vyvanse does nothing for you, except make you depressed, then perhaps another medication may be worth a try.
he refered me to a psych. my psych told me that vyvanse would help my add and my depression. he started me on 30mg and had to move me up to 50mg after 2 weeks because it was wearing off half way through the day and i would get extremely tired. when i first started taking the drug i noticed that i was more clear headed and driven through the day. at the same time i noticed that my appetite had decressed,my throat stayed dry and i was having trouble falling asleep.
I have no intention of ever taking this medication again, and I do feel ok now, but i have read that vyvanse overdoses can lead to death, and i just want to make sure im actually OK.
and a mild degree of depression when the medication is wearing off (because depression is something I would have to learn how to think positively and exercise and read scripture and pray myself out of anyway--and also focus on helping and showing appreciation to others). *** I described all these legitimate reasons for limiting or avoiding amphetamines because there are some misinformed reasons for avoiding them.
I have a question about Vyvanse. Currently, I am on 70mg. The problem is it wears off after 4-5 hours and I experience the worst crash and depression! I have experimented and taken 2 Vyvanse 70mg in one day.. one at 7am & the other at 1pm. That dosage lasted me until 9pm that night. I have read tons of articles about this wearing off on ADHD websites & forums.I also read where doctors are prescribing up to 210mg of Vyvanse. The most common high dose is 140mg.
I tried welbutrin and it knocked me out, provigil did the same. I've been on the new Vyvanse for a few weeks now and it is too good to be true. I feel like the person I always wanted to be: Alert, funny, not compulsive with food But now the fears begin. I'm terrified and obsessed with the idea that this is a honeymoon period and it will all wear off. I constantly search the boards for a confirmation of this fear.
so I talked to my doctor about it,and man what a difference in down from 16mg suboxone to 8mg after starting the vyvanse,at first I never thought I would ever come off suboxone.next month going to 4mg and so on until I'm off.the best thing about it is I don't hold my vyvanse so I can't abuse.laugh if you want but Dr brought my mom in made her sign contract that she would bring it too me every morning,I also had to sign for drug test .but it has been well worth it.
Wellbutrin Prozac Lithium Klonipin Topamax Vyvanse I also want to get off my meds. It has been 2 years since my first major depression episode.
I don't know it's really weird but here's how it usually works when I try to go on some sort of ADD/ADHD medication. Also mind you that I've only been prescribed Adderall and Vyvanse so I can only reference the symptoms that I receive from these. Usually when I start taking the medication everything's fine. It works out well and about 2 weeks from when I began the medication I begin to start noticing side-effects.
I am taking Vyvanse and Prozac, and I'm having trouble getting myself to eat. I am still in a healthy weight range, so I'm not worried about that. But I've been weak, fatigued, and dizzy at times because I'm not eating enough. Are there any protein shakes I should try, or something like that, so I can be getting the nutrients I need? I hate most protein shakes because I can't stand the texture, and they're usually gross. But I have to do something.
He then prescribed to me the amphetamine, Vyvanse (30mg). I was to take it the very next morning after breakfast. I have had very few problems with the my other medications, like the antidepressant, Zoloft (50mg), and the antihistamine, Zyrtec (10mg). But I have started to notice some very disturbing and confusing side effects the same day I started taking this. On Friday, I had taken one pill in the morning and left to go to school (I had taken my other medications the night before).
i have started to back off the vyvanse. i am opening up the capsule and taking about half of the medication. i would like to quit it all together, but have been told i need to go slowly off of it. has anyone else started having problems with an ADHD medication after taking it successfully for awhile?

I can't help you much, but I think the others before me did a pretty darn good job on explaining ADHD medication and their side effects. I have only been on Concerta and Vyvanse. All that I really know is Vyvanse is the newest of the group. It is what I am currently on, and love it. It really is great... it is also a stimulant, which is perfect for me, since I suffer from insomnia. I know everyone is different, but if your doctor suggests it, I highly recommend that you try it.
I agree with Sandman2 that you are taking too much. The first medication the doctor tried on me was vyvanse. I started on 30 mg which didn't last long enough. I was in college when I was taking it and took it at 9am and it was gone by 3-4pm. She increased my dose to 50 mg which was too much for me.
Some of the psyc's I have read question treating the depression without also treating the ADHD (since it could be causing the depression). Tend to agree with you on the Zoloft. And if you are bipolar, its really nasty - http://www.crazymeds.us/pmwiki/pmwiki.
I AM REALLY AFRAID TO TRY PROZAC 20 MG ALONG WITH VYVANSE 20 BECAUSE OF SERATONIN SYNDROME. PLEASE HELP. I AM 42 DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD .
He is taking meds that I feel couter act one another....reperidone.25mg 2 x day, vyvanse 30 mg 1 x a day, zoloft 1/2 25mg a day, and methyphidate 10 mg 1 x a day in afternoon. Help. Does these different medicines seem necessary. He is still have concentration issues.
Depression is a very common co-disorder of AD/HD. A lot of the time its the AD/HD that is the reason for the depression. And for good reason. If you don't understand what ADHD is doing to you - you are going to be depressed. By the way, anxiety is also a common co-disorder for the same reason. So yes, there is probably a very good chance that you are depressed. Vyvanse can last 8 to 12 hours. Too small a dose will not last as long.
wELL I NOW ADDED ABILIFY 2 MY LIST!
I have been switched from Cymbalta (weight gain) to Fetzima (weight loss) and additionally 50mg of Vyvanse for adult ADD. My symptoms of depression have subsided. I do not notice any huge difference in my attention span and still feel distracted when reading, unable to focus. I also feel tired and appear to crash about every afternoon regardless of when I take the medication, which is in the morning.
I would venture to guess that the weed/Vyvanse combo set something off. I've smoked my fair share in the past and absolutely cannot on Vyvanse or similar drugs. My brother in-law had a similar experience when he was about 16/17. He mixed many drugs and his brain sort of snapped. He has a family history of bi-polar. Some people have a genetic disposition for disorders and they lay dormant until something activates it, like a weed/meth combo. I know you are scared.
I was put on ADHD medication at 6 years old. I was on it for many years and it gave me disabling depression because it causes damage to the fragile dopamine system. I was a normal happy kid with way too much energy. Now I'm adult who can't work and struggles to get out of bed because of what this drug did to me.
How long until I can take other meds (in case the vomiting doesn't stop by tomorrow) such as promethazine or emetrol? Because I read that promethazine and vyvanse makes the vomiting a lot worse..so plz help me...I'm gonna go puke again... :( Oh and I can't go to my doctor and ask because this was my first time trying it(and last) because I got it from a friend. I am afraid if I am still nauseated in the morning my mom will make me take a promethazine and I cant tell her I took vyvanse...
Ask your doctor about Ritaln or Concerta for memory and attention problems. These symptoms can be side effects of depression. There is also Vyvanse and Focalin. If one does not work, try another. They will help with your energy. The meds are out of your system that day; do not linger for weeks.
Hey I am worried about my sister! She is on Vyvanse right now at thiry mgs but does NOT take it daily. Her husband takes twenty mgs of Adderall daily, and sometimes she will take an adderall instead of a vyvanse. Is this safe?? I don't think she is taking them at the same time but, is it safe for her to take an adderall on occasion? She claims the adderall gives her more energy than the vyvanse so she takes it when she has a night that she is working late and so on.
My history of addiction has made it exceedingly difficult to find a solution for my issues. The only drugs that have helped me so far have become addictions, & the other (non-addictive) drugs I have tried have either made my problems worse, or done nothing at all.
I was skeptical of the dissorder at first, and after trying behavior therapy and working with the school, decided to allow her to be on vyvanse. The medication works great with helping her to focus, but ever since she started taking it she has lost weight and now has become obsessed with biting her finger nails and skin around her nails.
Help at hand Fortunately when things just seemed to go out of hand (thoughts of death were clogging my mind), I approached a wonderful counsellor, who suspected I was suffering from clinical depression — something even cognitive tests confirmed. Depression had occurred, she explained, as continuous grieving had changed the natural production of serotonin, the happy chemical in the brain.
