Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and caffeine

vyvanse

Hello my name is John and was wondering if anyone can share experiences with Vyvanse. I started Vyvanse 3 months ago and my Doctor started me on a low dose and slowly upped the dose to 50 mg which worked great for me, but I wanted to see if 60 mg would benefit me more. I tried it for 2 weeks and it was definitely too much, it made me very up tight and not myself. So I went back down to 50 mg and now it seems if the 50 mg doesn't work as good as before. Has anyone experienced this?
gave me Wellbutrin and it produced none of the side effects you mention except decreased cravings for caffeine and sweets. Our pharmacist said vyvanse is a lot like adderall; he said everyone seems to be using it who would have previously been on adderall. It is very trendy right now. But I do not think it would help with anxiety at all, and I would guess anxiety might be causing your heart rate to be rapid. The Wellbutrin is a stimulating anti-depressant.
He takes 50 mg of Vyvanse daily and was wondering if anyone has experienced this side effect with Vyvanse. Thank you.
At noon, after taking forever to get up and eat breakfast, I took the Vyvanse again. I could be exaggerating, but I felt, almost immediately, the surge of energy come back again. My eyes (especially my left) were left dilated. I was very childishly irritable with my father, and became hyperactive. It lasted for a while, and, just as quickly as it started, disappeared. While I was writing all of this, things got worse.
Yes he is actually a great doctor, he has actually had adhd for 11 years and uses vyvanse as well and he knows from experience what could happen i am charting all my sxs as they happen and me and my husband will go over all of it when we go in.......the sxs last time started after lunch which was weird so I will keeep you posted on what he says.
I try and Avoid Sugar, VitaminC and anything Acidic(other than my one mug of black coffee) as I have read that these reduce the half life and effect of Vyvanse. I am a 56 yr old female RN. I was Just Diagnosed with ADHD June of 2013. I have struggled for years with this problem & used to self-medicate with caffeine all day long (black coffee) I work 13-15 hrs a day 3 days a week. I have Arthritis pretty bad in my hips, knees, wrist & hands that cause me constant pain. I take 600mg.
Is there any info on fish oil supplements and AVNRT? 2. Any info on Vyvanse and AVNRT? 3. Any info on best meds to take orally if tachycardia doesn't stop on own to avoid trip to ER?
How are you now? Tremors and shakiness are the side effects of both lithium and Prozac. Excess of caffeine too causes muscle twitching. In your case that could be the cause. No it is not related to Lyme’s disease. Self medication should not be done. Especially in your case when you are on a combination of medication. Hope it helps! Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
does she drink a lot of caffeine? Too much caffeine and calcium cause kidney problems. Check with the doctor to see how much calcium she should be getting each day. She may be getting too much thru certain foods. Cut the caffeine, switch to caffeine free soda if she can't quit soda altogether. Also increase the amount of water intake as water will cleanse the kidneys.
i used to sew and can and garden and cook and crochet---and i loved mowing the lawn. now i hardly do much of anything but sit in my rocking chair with long johns under my pants to keep my legs from being cold and i usually wear a sweater and quite often have a heating pad behind my neck. my oldest daughter at home--on a college break does most of the cooking--but i still vaccum! i feel so useless and lazy. there has got to be a way to feel better than this.
Vyvanse and Tenex for the ADHD and Risperdal and Lamictal for Bipolar. He also takes Melentonin to help him sleep. This combination of drugs to help him has been wonderful. They all seem to compliment each other.
The only thing I really do to help me with fatigue is some green tea in the morning, which does give me a definite boost (does have a little caffeine) and I find if I eat a giant veggie salad I get a little boost from all the vitamins and minerals. Speaking of which, my supplementation regimen does give me added energy against the fatigue as well. Course naps are a good way to relieve it too. Hope this helps you.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
I found that I need less caffeine than before I started taking Vyvanse. Vyvanse does a much better job than caffeine, so I drink less coffee, espresso, etc and rely on the medication. I feel better, too. I don't suggest dropping caffeine all at once...the withdrawal is a drag.
This all started with the Vyvanse. And of course the eating problems. Its so hard to remember to eat, and then when you do remember your already full with just a bite or two. Im starting to think I have a eating disorder because of how little I eat, or the only time I do really eat it after 10 pm when the meds start to wear off and I start to crave things... also found that ive been sleep eating..
I don't know what the difference between Provigil and Vyvanse is. I do have a sample box of Provigil so know that I was on that and can't remember why we went with Vyv??? I do know that with Vyvanse I don't have any crash at all. I am very lucky, maybe. I do know that stress spikes the fatigue and even with the Vyvanse I get messed up and need to rest and am able to nap when I need to. It isn't like speed or amphetamine for me.
my son takes vyvanse, and has the complete opposite effect...He is so focused and layed back...How long have you been on it?? 30mg i think is a low dose, but i am not sure if you are suppose to feel that way...Maybe let your doctor know and she what they think?
The precursors that go into the methylation cycle for SAMe, neurotransmitters, dopamine, serotonin are methionine, folate, B12, B6, TMG (trimethylglycine) and zinc, and maybe calcium and magnesium. This isn't a lot of info online about norepinephrine but Nutritional Healing has this on dopamine deficiency...
I'm sure they wouldnt vaccinate their children either. Anyway, I'm a graduate student at Harvard, and I as well have ADHD. I'm on Vyvanse and it COMPLETELY changed my life. It's the least addictive of all the stimulants and proves the have the least side effects. I'm a happier, more organized, productive, focused, and calm person. I wouldn't even ever think about going back to my old way of life. I definitely won't be changing my medication.
Quit drugging your children and find a way to work his problems without using meds. When he grows up he can decide on his own if he wants to jeopardize his mental and physical health using all those drugs you are giving him. I had severe ADHD when I was your son's age but I managed to get good grades once in High School. Consider getting your children off those drugs and a good diet before you make his symptoms permanent.
The use of your medications, as prescribed, has relatively predictable side effects, the use of more than directed is never to be done. In addition, combining Adderall and/or Vyvanse with caffeine and/or energy drinks should not be done. (I'm not talking about a cup of regular coffee every day, I'm talking about hi-test coffee [high caffeine] or multiple cups of regular coffee).
sometimes diarrehea and other times im just having to pee a lot. I dont drink to much caffeine and i drink a reasonable amount of water each day. im about 5'9'' and i weight roughly 186 pounds. Im not sure if thats overweight or not, and if its a contributing factor. Im so tired all the time, sometimes im afraid to even drive to work for fear of falling asleep. Its not narcalepsie either, its not that serious, but its definitely something.
The XR did not work for me because if did not seem to last very long and I also need lots of caffeine to keep me moving and awake. I then switched to the short acting adderall which I take 10 mg 4 times a day and it really helps. My son is on Vyvanse and it really works great. Talk to your pschiatrist about this and see if they can explain why they have you on the depression meds.
Ryannn94, First of all, I am very sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time; not only medically but with your friends, school, and stresses of everything else. I can surely sympathize with you and remember the confusion, frustration, and anger of emotions I felt trying to sort through everything. PLEASE HANG IN THERE!!!! First, some kinda good news: I have experience with the medications you are taking. I take them both now and have for a long time.
Thankfully since starting vyvanse a few weeks ago, I can now contrast how I act and feel. So really what I am hoping is for other people to help me figure out what I'm feeling and give over accurate descriptions to the doc. Vyvanse 40mg started at 20mg first week, 2nd week 30mg, now 40mg. I feel more focused and able to work for longer periods of time.
Also my current meds I am on some of them entail my thyroid med levothyroxine, lithium and fanapt for schizoaffective disorder, lamotrigine, topomax also to help with mood control, gabapentin for ocd, vyvanse for adhd, and baclofen for my back. I take cherry supplement for fibromyalgia, a daily vitamin, fish oil, flax oil, raspberry ketone for weight stuff.
No, I was not on any acid reducers then. In fact, I was on adderall xr for 4 months and then vyvanse for over a year. A couple months before I quit vyvanse was when I randomly started having this reaction. Strange, but something chemically must be going on with me. My tolerance for both caffeine and alcohol has also decreased pretty dramatically since I quit vyvanse. I think it's really weird that I react to strattera like this since 10mg is typically the dose given to little kids.
Well I am 41yrs old and I have ADHD and my 8 yr old doughter is ADHD I know from the pass that there are many of meds out there but you are limited for a child my doughter and I take vyvanse and I love it I have taken many of meds and to me that's the best my doughter was the same way in school until she was put on it now she feels better and she don't stuggle as much but the thing about suffering from ADHD is that the older you get the harder it is to teat it there will be times when the Dr wil
I also have chronic migranes, chronic pain, and insomnia. The best method that works for me is to take 1 vyvanse in the morning(and as bad as my ADHD is, only take it if you need it)! Every day I get off of vyvanse I feel like I'm just waiting to open the bottle and get the routine moving for the day. BUT DON'T. Honestly, after a few days of weaning off you feel refreshed and ready to get on with the day.
