Vyvanse and hallucinations

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and hallucinations

vyvanse

Probably not the smartest thing to do taking a different med while taking your prescribed meds, but hey, if it works, id ask your doctor the next visit about switching. he may have you on the celexa for a reason.
After that there was no effect. Vyvanse has caused none of the ups and downs that bothered me the most with Adderall and other meds. Obviously the medication will effect a 5-6 differently, but at the right dose we should all respond fairly similarly to the medication. A couple questions if I may.... Can I ask you what Vyvanse side effects you are frightful of? Also, who it was that diagnosed your son as ADHD? A psychiatrist/psychologist or a pediatrician?
(All 40mg) took one about 27 hours ago, 25 hours ago and 17 hours ago (didnt sleep one bit last night)and now I can't sleep and am extremely nauseated and have vomited twice. 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...
He is taking vyvanse now but it is causing him to have hallucinations and very bad tics where he will jerk and shudder and make noises out of the blue and they are getting worse. What does your son take Tenex for? If you dont mind me asking.
He has been on several different medications and currently is on Vyvanse and Depakote ER. His major issues before being hospitalized were hallucinations and suicidal ideation with aggression toward other students at school (he tried to stab 2 kids with scissors and has hit several other kids and the principal).

Hello, Constant tiredness and exhaustion can be a feature of anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome(often manifests with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, cognitive difficulties, chronic mental and physical exhaustion),hypothyroidism, disorders of the hypothalamus, psychiatric disorders like depression and sleep-related breathing disorders. Another thing is that fatigue,headache,sleep disturbances,hallucinations and confusion are the common side effects of citalopram.
I'm just not sure if these hallucinations are a sign of my depression worsening and/or becoming something else, or if it is completely unrelated.
Unsure if it's related, but I also tend to have headaches most of the day and get migraines about every other month, but they don't seem to correlate with the smell. I am 20, Female, about 5ft 5, 135lbs, white/ middle eastern, USA east coast, and I take vyvanse. Also got in a car accident and had to get some shoulder surgery around when this started, but I honestly don't remember exactly when it started.
He's been on numerous medications to control the mood disorder (more difiant than anything) and ADHD. He is currently taking Abilify and Vyvanse. We have good days and bad. He's always been kind of afraid to be alone, particularly at night. Sometimes he wants to sleep with me (divorced Mom), but I tell him he's too old to sleep with his mama. The other night while walking him to his room to go to bed, he said, 'I keep seeing all these people". I asked, "these what?".
So, I get prescribed Vyvanse and nothing - just extreme tension and irritability. I see him again and he offers to subscribe me Lamictal for my "disorganized thoughts". Now, I am a case manager in the mental health field and he knows this, so he is aware that I know what the Lamictal is for. I still say, no oh no, and I get a prescription for Focalin. And it seems to help a bit with my memory and all. I look on the internet and explore Bipolar - thinking I have missed something.
This is a regular Tuesday night family event. Our date night is Thursday night! Then it's just him and me. I always try to make his birthdays special. He was the middle child of a family of 13. Good old rhythem family planning didn't quite work so well for them, I guess!! LOL. In his family they never received a cake or presents. Just a happy birthday!! He never expects much.
I get that weakness under stress or when I laugh. My knee will buckle and I will loose my balance and stumble. I am on vyvanse for ADHD that I was only diagnosed with a few years ago. I am a teacher and I really wouldn't say it was ADHD, more like sleep deprivation. Also I am on cymbals for the depression after not being diagnosed for so long. Just was diagnosed lpr a few days before. I get the same thing since I resigned after giving birth.
I havnt slept in 32 hours, and am having bad hallucinations its almost as ive my vision is zooming in and out really far, and things seem to be moving alot when there really not moving at all...
If not you could ask them about other sleep aides one of which is Rozerem which is an FDA approved medication that is safe and non addictive and works like melatonin to adjust the sleep cycle and whether that would be a viable option.
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.
But right before all that, I was experiencing sharp neck pains and severe trembling and spasms that got much worse once I decided to stop cold turkey (the vyvanse first and then the zoloft). In a psych ward, I was given Geodon and the intense sharp neck pain started almost 5-10minutes within taking the pill. Then I started taking Buspar; same thing accompanied with tight chest and feelings of death.
Then, for weekends after that when he put her to bed, she would have traumatic hallucinations about spiders and bugs, and said they were buzzing around her and trying to get into her head! It was so sad and aggravating to think that a professional doctor, who had taken a hippocratic oath to do no harm to any person, and a mother could have conspired to do this to her own child!
Anxiety was back, but in the form of teeth clenching, causing my teeth/gums to ache, and jaw and hands shaking as if I was shivering in the evenings. (Note: He also prescribed Prozac for the anxiety, which helped during the AM, and Klonopid for the PM or as needed. Definitely helps.) No side effects when stopped cold turkey. There was no positive to this one for me. 2011 (Sept) – Concerta – Prescribed, havent started yet.
I would probably talk to the doctor about bringing them off this medicine. I am 36 and couldn't tolerate Adderall, i was nervous, almost paranoid, moody..and it eventually seemed to make my ADD worse. I'm off it now and feel a thousand percent better. It took me about 5 months though before my body started making enough of it's own dopamine and I stopped feeling fatigued and depressed (it was progressive though). I take 5htp now and L tyrosine, both can help with ADD.
So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
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.
