Taking vyvanse and wellbutrin together

Common Questions and Answers about Taking vyvanse and wellbutrin together

vyvanse

I am taking 450 mg Wellbutrin with 40 mg. Lexapro and 10 mg. Abilify and I don't seem to have any particular side effects from the combination. I also take Zonegran, an anti-seizure drug that is used to treat neuropathic pain. My doctor gave me Xanax to take as needed, knowing the mixture that I already had. There doesn't seem to be a problem with that, either.
Thus far though they have worked very well together. Vyvanse is a newer ADD med and I specifically requested something other than Adderall due to side affects. My doctor explained to me that because Vyvanse has a very good time release the boost is similar however not as overbearing and much easier as it wears off than Adderall because the "come down" or "crash" does not cause such a severe low.
I've heard positive feedback about it helping with depression, but nothing really on its effectiveness with adhd. I just stopped taking vyvanse and was put on this, and was nervous I would have trouble, due to that I'm used to taking the stimulant drugs. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!
Taking amphetamine (i.e. Adderall, Dexedrine, Vyvanse), bupropion (WellButrin), dexfenfluramine, fenfluramine, furazolidone, guanadrel, guanethidine, or have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) (e.g., phenelzine) in the last 14 days" This quote is from - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phentermine You probably should read the link. I kind of get the feeling that the two meds should not be combined. Hope this helps.
I use to take cymbalta and it worked then all of a sudden i was feeling like i was having anxiety attacks from taking it, my doctor put me on that and wellbutrin, i still felt that way, then he put me on 300 mg of wellbutrin and stopped the cymbalta it wasnt working so yesterday i took my cymbalta and wellbutrin again and started having anxiety attacks bad again, can that have been what caused the anxiety attacks again?
I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine.
I finally went in—after researching my symptoms, putting two and two together, and talking to my grandmother (she had hashis and cancerous nodules resulting in a TT)—again for blood work. I demanded a thyroid test because I was done, I was miserable. The results came back & here I am. I just started on Levo this week & following up with an endo in July. I recommend getting your thyroid tested ASAP. I've never gotten a doctor to do a full thyroid pannel...
RE TAKING TOO MUCH!!!!!! No wonder you're abusing alcohol and cigarettes. I am taking 50mg daily and at age 50, I have no negative side effects. Vyvance usually wears off at about 4pm. On the positive side, It actually opens my nasal passages and I can breath freely. My allergies have prevented this for years.
There is a huge difference between someone addicted to speed (meth, etc) and someone who has ADHD and is taking the prescribed amount of the medication. You can literally stop and start it any time. The only effect is that you go back to the feeling you had before going on the med. So, in your case, there should be nothing to worry about. You could stop it tomorrow, go off it for a few days, go back on it, etc. Many adult users can use it on an only "as needed basis".
By about sat around 2p I was in hell, and really didn't know why. Put two and two together and was beside myself when I called a pharmacist and said I was withdrawing and "coming down". I was so confused and then angry. Got home immediately took adderall, ten minutes...was a completely different person, I was on top of the world. That scared me. Next day, assertively questioned doc, and she gave me the B.S. of blabber to cover her ***.
i also take abilify (for mania) and xanax for anxiety and panic, vyvanse for adhd and a host of other meds from lortab and soma's(muscle relaxer) to nexium(for acid reflux) and mobic (for joint pain). i'm quitting smoking tomorrow so i'm sure the xanax and soma's will come into play, i usually don't take them everyday but i might take them as prescribed until i get through the rough first week. if you ever need to talk i'm here, just send a not or message.
This type of antidepressant treats depression by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. . Wellbutrin is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor, and is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved drug in its class. It does not affect serotonin at all, and instead inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine, therefore, increasing the levels of these two neurotransmitters in the brain." I imagine that is why he may have you on these two drugs.
I've been on various anti-depressants over the last few years and have stopped taking them and had serious and discomforting withdrawals, even though the doctors totally deny the symptoms are possible. It passes with time. Hope things work out for you. I'm coming off Prozac right now and am very irratible and havine suicidal thoughts......I pray this will pass. Wishing you much happiness.

Perhaps you could find some child care so that you can go to initial appointments and be focused on yourself. I'm a stay at home mom of two kids as well and they are close together in age and understand how that it is not ideal to take them with you to everywhere you go. If you have a friend that you can 'trade' occasional babysitting with, this works great---- meaning that during your doctor's appts.
Prozac and Paxil both significantly block the pathway for the metabolism of Adderall and all the amphetamine products. [Wellbutrin and Cymbalta can block 2D6 at their higher doses.] If you take either of these two antidepressants together with an amphetamine, just watch out. You can significantly become overdosed on the amphetamine and suffer significant side effects. Often this interaction can unpredictably occur several months later.
This program works miracles so please, think positive and have no fear. My husband and I got clean and sober together in 99. Anything and everything is possible in recovery. God Bless you son.
I am taking 75mg. of topamax and also taking Zoloft and Verapamil for migraines. I am not loosing any weight. I am so frustrated because I feel that I'm the only one that's not losing. Does anyone think it's because of the other drugs I'm taking? Next week I go to 100mg.
even now this is taking me time to type as my brain is groggy and slow and I have to stop and let my thoughts ferment before my hands respond....very frustrating. It is like when your television gets that digital blip and everything freezes and I can't think straight and it is all juddery. Now I have stopped thinking all together...laters. Alys.
