i am not a doctor but I can say that I was on Vyvnase 60 mg per day and experimented with opiates including methadone, for chronic pain, chronic bowel issues and for Opiate addiction. I was talking between 10 and 40 mgs of methadone. What you can expect is a severe decrease in the efficacy of your ADD meds Vyvanse. You will feel tired, or easily exhausted, if you are a man you will likely have a decrease in the amount of testosterone in your system.
Ibuprofen every six hours ATC just to maintain so I can work and function. I do not want to take Opiates and I Do Not. I would APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE or SUGGESTIONS That Will be Helpful. I feel Terrible if I get up and Do Not drink my Coffee. I usually drink it, then take my Vyvanse and hour later.
so here I am with another diagnosis along with the bipolar I have ADHD(diagnosed on 11-16-09)...and was given vyvanse WOW!!! my whole life changed just like that...I was happy upbeat motivated and got things accomplished I had never before in my life felt this complete..if you have adhd you know what I mean...
The officer said he gave him a sobriety test and said he didnt really seem intoxicated and had me take him home and had his ride impounded due to no insurance. Well he got his ride out on Thursday and yesterday the police had him again, but let my husband go get his ride, but instead of charging him with a dwi he only got a pi, due to him being at a gas station when they found him and he was not driving.
They all increased his ticks tremendously. We switched over to vyvanse and that seemed so much better for the ADHD and the tics were still there but not nearly as bad. He also has been diagnosed with ODD and so at the Tourette's clinic they prescribed him a low dose of risperidone. This not only helped with the oppositional behavior, the tics were barley there.
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.
We all know that the pharma industry gives two ***** about long term effects of their medication as long as profit is plentiful. Opiates have an abundance of positive uses and the side effects minus allergies are no worse than amphetamine salts, anti-depressants and especially benzos. Let's take a step back and re-consider instead of writing off Opium and it's naturally occurring alkaloids. Heroin is not a natural alkaloid in opium. Neither is oxycodone/oxycontin.
Please help. I have been taking Narco for 3 years 5-7 a day for 3 years and Vyvanse for almost a year. I have only take 2 narco in he last 4 days and no Vyvance . Can I just stop cold turkey. My husband is keeping me physically active. I'm irritable, hot and cold. I need direction.
And the idea that wanting off a drug means you shouldn't take any drug makes no sense. Opiates white-wash almost all anxiety and depression disorders, and a number of physical problems. The majority of addicts use to self-medicate. There are often underlying medical issues that need to be treated. If doctors saw addicts like people they may work to fix those problems rather than throwing Suboxone and Methadone at them to mask everything.
So when I was off the opiates, and my anxiety/depression/attention problems returned, they were willing to help me. I was able to convince them through therapy, as well as, my behavior that all I ever wanted was a solution to my problems. That my drug abuse was about self medication and doing the best I could to get by, rather than getting high. It even took us a while to arrive at the ADHD diagnosis after I had completed the drug rehab.
I've been clean from heroin/coke for a little over a year; and I didn't know I was bipolar until last summer!
In my case my drugging dragged me down and I used everything but opiates. I found the various versions of what we called speed back then helped me to focus. I first got clean and sober back in 1982 and stayed that way for 28 years. During that period I was in AA and later NA. I took absolutely no mind altering drugs and those recovery programs really helped to keep me on solid ground. I had a great work career that I retired from at age 55 in 2001.
It is probably the vyvanse that are making you feel that way. It's an amphetamine and you should talk taking it immediately unless it's prescribed by your doctor. Just continue with a slow taper of the hydro's. For a taper to actually work well, you should reduce your intake slowly over a number of days. You should feel comfortable before you decrease your dose again. Good luck and keep posting.
Each of these medications is a stimulant and like opiates and benzodiazepines they are a “controlled substance”, meaning that their possession, distribution, and prescription are monitored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). We’ve known for many years that these drugs are widely abused and wrongly prescribed. Stimulant medications work on what’s referred to as the “paradoxical affect”, meaning that something can’t work, yet it does.
They drug you up with xanax and clonidine and other things after which makes it worse in my opinion. They also gave me vyvanse and told me i was adhd, which i am not. The vyvanse was basically like giving cocaine to an addict and they just sent me on my way. I was still in active withdrawal which i didnt realize and i relapse quite quickly. I am sure there are many people that stayed sober, but i just wanted to share my experience with you.
I have taken ADD meds most of my life, like ritalin, and now I take Vyvanse (amphetamine based) stangely I have never been addicted to this, I don't take it on the weekends,never took more than I am supposed to. To the point, would adding L-tyrosine be a bad mix to an ADD med? ADD meds give you a kick, though not much of one as I have been on them so long. I get the effects I need with regards to focus and production. Just afraid a pick me up might blast my blood pressure.
I am wondering if that antidepressant caused some sort of change in my body that did not go away. I was opening my vyvanse capsule and taking about 1/3 of the powder and I would often have to take clonazepam to get rid of the shakes, but I think I did better taking a less amount.
According to your mid May post on the Addiction Forum you have struggled seriously with opiates in the past and continue to have strong cravings. You stated you were taking GHB... very dangerous and I do believe it is illegal. I am not street drug literate. You also stated, Begin Quote "i'm horrible i would probably take anything that wouldnt kill me." End Quote. I am so concerned for you. I urge you to be cautious....
I have used and abused pretty much every drug their is and in my opinion the opiates were the hardest to get off of. It sounds like He has a LOT of substance abuse issues .
I have just hit a little bump in the road, and I am simply having a hard time facing the reality my life has become! It's overwhelming, it's scary, and it's life.... If I can kick opiates I can def get through anything that comes by way. I just have to remember to take this one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time... You two must stay strong as well, and no more slips witsend...

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 just started a med called vyvanse about 3 weeks ago and I know the first 4 days was rough no sleep and etc. but now it works great I am just very tired come about 7-8 pm dues to the drug not working as well.......and I just read all your other sxs and me being in the healthcare field they really sound of 2 possible problems.....
Sleep is precious, and restful sleep is what helps heal you. I know abt. tolerance with opiates but not much abt. adderal. It would be great if you could wean yourself down, don't know if you can possibly do that. I'm sorry this is happening to you, I understand as I have two children in college and grades are crucial to them too. Hope the Dr. here can offer some help.
I went back to my doctor three months ago, the same one who knew I was a drug addict, and i convinced him to give me klonopin again, as well as temezepam, and he also prescribed me vyvanse as well. No opiates though, but I do still take them.
Basically, I have a hard time getting motivated, an even harder time keeping motivation (I'll get distracted easily and quickly), I procrastinate on anything and everything (I wait until the last minute on school work and end up pulling all nighters just to meet the deadline, can't get myself to study without taking a break every 10-15 minutes, haven't had a job in over a year and before that it had been around 2 years but I can't seem to get myself motivated to try and find one), get "tra
hello to all on this post i have been taking 160 mgs a day of oxycontin and im in a very bad situation i have 2 kids and a wife and she does not know i want to stop so badly and am scared to let my wife know that im addicted again this is not the first time and i cant afford to let her know that im addicted to this crap again .
I have gotten used to the loss of appetite side effect and have adjusted accordingly. Durring summer or breaks, I rarely use it at all and attempt to complete my tasks on time. My weekly lifestlye also includes going to the bar. I go on thursdays and only take one in the morning. My main concern is, I feel that I cant complete this many tasks without it. Adderol seems to work wonders with my school work, and the success of my business.
