Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and prozac

vyvanse

He was on the the Daytrona patch but it was burning his back and he was able to take it off. The doctor switched him to Vyvanse and he started taking it four days ago. The last four days have been extremely difficult for us and him. He doesn't understand the moods and he is very upset. He can not focus or sit still. He was doing so well with finally talking and socializing and now he can not even think straight.
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.
Is it safe to be prescribed xanax for a vyvanse patient who suffers from panic and anxiety issues?
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 .
I got on Vyvanse last year and I had high blood pressure again. I stopped taking it for a while, but I was still having high blood pressure so my Dr. put me on Lisinopril 10 mg & HCTZ 25 mg. My BP has still been high on this, even off Vyvanse (I am taking it again now since I am back in school). I told my Dr. about my anxiety bc I get really stressed about little stuff and almost feel like I am going to have a breakdown. I used to be on Prozac, but didn't think it did anything.
A year ago, My therapist said he thought I was AHDH and and put my on 50mg of Vyvanse. I thought I was fine without it but he wore me down and I started taking it. About 3 1/2 months ago, I was feeling like I was in a fog off and on and so I stopped taking my prozac. About three months ago I decided I didnt want to take vyvanse anymore as I really couldnt tell a difference. I did fine with getting off the Vyvanse.
My 13 yr old son recently (20 days ago) started taking vyvanse 30 mg for ADD and Prozac 30mg for anxiety over learning disability in math. We have tried Adderal and Strattera but with little effect. These first weeks of school have been much much better than we could have hoped for. He gets up on his own, wants to get to school early, remembers what his homework assignments are, and is eager to get his homework finished.
Today I started 20 mg of Prozac and 40 Mg of Vyvanse. I am trying to adjust medicines for my life along with my diet...with the vyvanse, I have felt more aware: not draggy brain and speaking clearer...
Antidepressant medications are different from each other. "Prozac and Paxil significantly, block the metabolism, the breakdown, the effective use of amphetamine products like Vyvanse, Adderall, and Dexedrine.

His pediatrician feels pretty certain he also has ADD and wants to put him on Vyvanse and see how he reacts to that. I am just sick. I have such strong feelings against medicating children and here I am about to do this to him. In doing my online research I came across something called absence seizures. Does anyone know if hypothyroidism and this can be related and what are the chances he has both thyroid disease and ADD. He himself crys to me all the time that he can't remember things.
I currently take Prozac, Lithium (ER), and Vyvanse each 1x a day. I also get an injection of Depo-Provera once every 3 months. I also have an Rx for Xanex, which is to be taken as needed, but I have not taken it in months. I also often self-medicate with caffine pills - I took two 200mg caffine pills yesterday around 5pm. I also took some Aleve at that time, as I have been having eye pain and headaches for the last two weeks and I was hoping to aleviate that pain.
Of course I weaned him off and after 2 years, he is finally normal again and only takes Vyvanse for his ADHD. The Vyvanse has worked great and he has been taking it for 1 year. When my son went off the zoloft after 2 months his tics decreased and most of the side effects went away. I told my doctor that I took him off since I had told her before that he was having problems and all she did was raise the dose.
I started a higher dose of Vyvanse (70) and bi-polar stuff (3x little one) and prozac (60). I have an appointment with Dr. O today. Didn't sleep last night.... but got a little reast betwqeen 6 AM- 9 AM.
It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite. However, I have been on Yaz for a few months, and I swear it reverses all the positive effects of Vyvanse (more energy/decreased appetite) because I am so tired and hungry all the time. In the past I have tried Lo-Estrin, Nuva-Ring,& Ortho Tri Cyclen. Does anyone have any recommendations for the perfect pill--i.e.
my new dr put me on only 5 mg adderall upped me to 50 mg prozac and a month later dded wellbutrin sr 150 mg in am and pm....im cutting back on prozac today as dr had told me to drop down from 50 to 10 before i went on vacation,but i didnt want to freak out so i stayed on the 50 mg.im out of adderall for a few days so hope i have no efects from that...wellbutrin is causing me to have tummy fat so im cutting back to 150 mg dr didnt want to see me for 4 months..
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.
I had been taking prozac for almost 10 years and it worked great. Then, it's like it just quit working. I switched to Celexa and I don't feel like it works at all. The only thing that seems to relieve my anxiety is Xanax which I am scared of becoming dependent on. But, I am about to just say forget it and take it as needed instead of trying to stay down to 1 a day. I only take .25 mg, but it seems like it is not working as well as it used to.

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.
It wasn't always like this, this happened when i was on prozac a few months back and i am now on welbutrin + abilify + Vyvanse. This really *****, any help or ideas on fixing this?

He is 10 and on Concerta 54 mg (for last almost 3 years) and Zoloft 100 mg and Intuniv 2 mg and recently Risperdal 0.25 mg every am and 0.5 mg q pm. The neurologist wanted to add another med Abilify on board as he was still having some outburst behavior. I find this troubling that he wants my child on 5 psychoactive meds. we sought a second opinion from a psychiatrist that our son's therapist recommended.

The patient becomes toxic to the amphetamine, angry, irrational, can’t sleep, can’t eat, and can become dangerously destructive. The Adderall or Vyvanse often gets blamed. The Prozac and the Paxil are the problem. More about Adderall in a later post.

Print it out and take it to your doctor. Its not the stim meds.
i take prozac, abilify, xanax, and vyvanse (for adhd). just keep trying and pray if you believe in god, it helps me and couldn't hurt anyway.
i think i need a medicine change, i'm on prozac, abilify, xanax, lortab (for joint, carpal tunnel and back pain), soma (for muscle spasms), mobic (an nsaid for inflamation), nexium (for acid reflux), colestid ( for irritable bowel syndrome), vyvanse (for adhd), and i think that's it. but my psychiatrist won't even consider changing my meds even though i'm still having so many problems. i think i need cymbalta to help with the pain or something else. the abilify doesn't work good enough either.

i also have adhd that i take vyvanse 50mg for and that helped with my anxiety a great deal. i take abilify 30mg for mania, i am also bipolar along with the adhd and anxiety. anyway, it sounds like you aren't really being treated for your anxiety, talk to your psychiatrist asap and explain the situation. you could talk to a psychologist or therapist to get things off your chest and maybe for some suggestions on how to better manage your condition.
the amphetamines i take for adhd seem to lessen my anxiety but if you don't have adhd it will just cause you anxiety and other bad stuff. the vyvanse for adhd really lessened my use of xanax. it takes trial and error to find which meds work for you. you might need another med change or an anti anxiety medicine added to help. good luck and if you aren't happy with your doctor, if you don't think they have your best interests at heart or don't listen, then find a new one that will.
