Vyvanse and psychosis

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and psychosis


Avatar_f_tn My son has been takiing this med Vyvanse for adhd, so I decided to take it to see if it would help me with my depression and anxiety, and it worked great, I didn't have any side effect to it. This is why I ask if its okay to take Vyvanse for my anxiety, right now I'm taking celexa but its not doing nothing for me anymore. I've been taking Celexa for the past 3 yrs and I think its time for me to change my meds.
1447814_tn?1284739057 We started him ok Tenex at 3 1/2 and it did wonders, but since he started Kindergarten it's gotten so much worse so he was recently put on risperidone for aggression at night and 1/2 tenex and Vyvanse in the morning. Like I said, it's a hard decision to make, but I know my child is a wonderful caring boy, and it breaks my heart to know that he thinks he's "bad" and no one likes him because he can't control himself. If medication can help, then I say do it.
Avatar_f_tn Gleason says Kyle’s current status proves he probably never had bipolar disorder, autism or psychosis. His doctors now say Kyle’s tantrums arose from family turmoil and language delays, not any of the diagnoses used to justify antipsychotics. “I will never, ever let my children be put on these drugs again,” said Ms. Warren, 28, choking back tears. “I didn’t realize what I was doing.” Dr. Edgardo R.

Avatar_f_tn 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.
Avatar_f_tn That is for treatment refractory depression and has been used experimentally for psychosis. The antipsychotic agent I am on in Phase II FDA study (for more information google "Dr. Javitt, glycine" my case study will be published in a psychiatric journal) is available but must only be taken with a psychiatrist's consent. It might be considered if all known antipsychotics have failed to work. Bring the information to your psychiatrist and ask them about it.
Avatar_f_tn ) 3) Easily stressed, affecting mental/emotional/physical, twice even leading to brief agitation and atypical psychosis. I take things too seriously/defensive. Sometimes anxiety. I had a cortisol serum test of 10.6 ug/dl, morning. **Emedicine said this is indeterminate or suggestive of adrenal insufficiency. In my teens, my cortisol was said to be low. A hair mineral analysis showed the most advanced stage of adrenal exhaustion. My ACTH was on the high-normal end of the range.
Avatar_n_tn I've been doing lots of reading, however, we're 15 months into talk therapy and 3 months into psychiatry care and things only seem to be getting worse. The psychosis episodes are becomming dangerous and physical and are becomming more frequent. I am beginning to be concerned about the welfare of the rest of the family. He is currently being treated with Zyprexa (for voices he hears) and prozac for depression.
Avatar_m_tn I too received amphetamines and I suspect I have aspergers. Yes, that's amphetamine psychosis. Been there. He won't get better until he is off of them - and there will be an adjustment period for some time after - we're talking many months. As for how to accomplish that, join a narcotics or mental health support group, see a family counselor or join a supportive community of people in similar circumstances.
603015_tn?1329866573 I am currently taking Lithium and Risperdone, as well as Vyvanse and Ambien to also help with my ADHD and insomnia.
Avatar_f_tn Saw your post to Ryann and you may hit on something. If you read all of Ryann's posts - it turned out he was hypoglycemic. Here are the symptoms for that.
Avatar_m_tn The symptoms seem to be progressing pretty rapidly and I am afraid that on day I may not be able to get out of bed or even wake up at all for that matter. Both Wilson's disease (presenting with psychosis) and almost every kind of cancer run in my family. If anyone has any insight into a link between these symptoms or any ideas of what I can do to help alleviate any of this in the mean time it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar_m_tn The crash f*cked me up and I had to re-learn to live life while dealing with full blown coke cravings that I gave into by using my Vyvanse. I took supplements and exercised and took Piracetam and my cognition has vastly improved and I am off all drugs except Vyvanse which I actually need. I don't feel any addictive feelings for DXM or MDMA anymore. Life is amazing now and all my depression is gone and my social anxiety is cured. The coke/vyvanse combo woke me up from DXM LaLa land.
Avatar_m_tn then back on , but at a MUCH lower dose ( 25 mgs/qd) and adding in LEXAPRO 10 mgs/qd.... also, added in VYVANSE 60mgs/qd ..... I think this is about the MOST stable I've ever been, and doing good in my job and in general. I've been at my job a year now, this month... and still going strong-- improving and getting good recognition what I am doing. It 's a real good feeling!!!
526272_tn?1212510393 Sounds like the troubles I had with my teen. He had 11 referrals last school year, and was eventually expelled. He spent 9 days at a hospital in June, and we finally found the right combination of meds. He's on Prozac & Vyvanse now... and is doing wonderful (like a different kid). I've struggled with his behavior since he was 3 or 4. He has ADHD, Conduct Disorder/ODD, Depression, Psychosis. But if your daughter doesnt have any disabilities or disorders ...
461596_tn?1324870632 Well ... I guess I was wrong about Austin being Bipolar. But I'm not a doctor either. He had a 9 day, 8 night hospital stay, and he finally got released today. He was discharged with these diagnoses... Conduct Disorder, ADHD, major depression, Psychosis. He's on Prozac 20mg & Vyvanse 50mg. He seems to be feeling much better, and was eager to get home & play with his cousin next door. He told me on the phone that things were going to be different & better now.
253566_tn?1219683299 But if you have to ask yourself. And then tell them the exact truth. And if you did have such extreme feelings of depression and still do I would suggest working on getting help for it even if you don't feel you should be hospitalized because that would indicate that things are wrong. You have to understand its not a matter of trust. There are regulations. It happenned to me once before recovery. But I can't say they did the wrong thing.
Avatar_f_tn 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.
Avatar_f_tn I was extremely hyper and had racing thoughts and was elated the other day, then I felt ok but lazy for a few days, then depressed for a couple of days and super tired, and now I am extremely irritable and I keep getting mad and yelling at people and just about everything. Yesterday I started digging my nails into my skin without even realizing it because I was so upset that my husband invited a co worker to lunch with us and I didn't want to deal with people at the moment.
Avatar_n_tn In instances of each condition, some persons have been wrongly diagnosed, hospitalized for months, and treated unsuccessfully for psychosis. Among us who have Graves' Disease refer to "Graves' Rage", committed acts that might seem violent or out of character (OH Boy!). Screaming, throwing dishes, or assaulting someone. "Graves' rage" is describe as inappropriate feelings of anger (OH Yes!
