Vyvanse and working out

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and working out

vyvanse

I was on adderall and switched to Vyvanse because my doctor wanted to see how it worked. I didn't even last a month and had to go back to adderall. It just didn't have the same effectiveness for me.
Hey Linz, my psych had switched me to Vyvanse when it first came out, and at my next appointment I asked to be switched back to Adderral XR. The vyvanse did not work much at all for me, if anything it made me worse. So now I'm back on Adderral, and doing alright, or as alright as I can be doing (unfortunately meds don't make everything ok).
I'm not to sure about how this stuff works and I was curious on how it works. Does Vyvanse help depression? I tend to think poorly about the future and about working out. But when I take a 40-50mg pill, I feel happy, confident, focused and smart. Am I the only one who experiences this? Is Vyvanse for just focusing or can it be used for depression? I want to hear some input about Vyvanse and its effects. I'm on it now and if I wasn't, I know I wouldn't be typing this.
His doctor put him on Vyvanse. He has since flunked out of 2 colleges due to the fact that he can't focus. He IS and has always been a very good athlete, playing football and basketball in high school and college. I assume that is due to the fast-pace of those sports. However, I am beginning to wonder if the Vyvanse is working on the problem. The doctor said that he has to get him on the right dosage and has been changing the strength.
I'm a 22 year old male and am currently taking 50 mg vyvanse daily. Just got it upped from 40 mg. You asked about taked it as need, and I'll tell you what my doctor told me. He actually recommended that I take it only as need because your tolerance doesn't build up as fast when you do this, therefore, making vyvanse more effective in the long run. And about how you're crashing really hard and feeling queezy. I believe that is normal, however you might be on too high of a dose.
and a mild degree of depression when the medication is wearing off (because depression is something I would have to learn how to think positively and exercise and read scripture and pray myself out of anyway--and also focus on helping and showing appreciation to others). *** I described all these legitimate reasons for limiting or avoiding amphetamines because there are some misinformed reasons for avoiding them.
Now I'm a wreck when on it I love to do tons of things and I'll even be happy when it wears off and worst when i run out It's like I cannot do anything at all and depression like I have never experienced before in my life and plus anxiety so bad that any and everything I worry about. Now I'm out of Vyvanse until the 2nd and please anybody help me be and act normal without this!
My initial concern was sleepiness. I tried welbutrin and it knocked me out, provigil did the same. I've been on the new Vyvanse for a few weeks now and it is too good to be true. I feel like the person I always wanted to be: Alert, funny, not compulsive with food But now the fears begin. I'm terrified and obsessed with the idea that this is a honeymoon period and it will all wear off. I constantly search the boards for a confirmation of this fear.
Six weeks ago he was prescribed Vyavanse, he wanted to save his job because he was so unfocused and now has done wonders for his job-he is focused and dedicated to working as much as needed to get the job done, he is organized, and really proving himself with his company however, it seems that other issues are coming to light. In the past he has had alcohol and cocaine addiction issues, he was actually sober for five years.
Today I found out that me and my daughter had empty capsules of Vyvanse. My sons was filled I just got his yesterday. I was noticing that I wasn't having any response to the medication. We all take the same mg so I decided to take one of his thinking well maybe they take effect if their fresh from the pharmacy which I got yesterday. To my surprise I was able to feel the medication and so did my 12yr old son. I decided to look at my pills and to my surprise there was no powder in my pills.
My doc wants me to come in for a consult but they are booked weeks out and the meds will run out before that. I'm sure they can refill the current scrip but why would I want that if it's not working?
i have a long day and take vyvanse very early it is suposed to last 12 hrs but i think more like 7 i read that people take boosters with it i still have ritalin cause i just switched 2 weeks ago to 70 mg vyvanse and it doesnt do anything anymore did the vyvanse make it so it no longer works what is the best way to go about this aftr work i take care of my kids all night and have been lacking energy and very short with them which isnt fair cause it is not their fault id ask my dr but he would jus
Finding the right dosage is many times a trial and error thing as all people are different. And yes, there are other meds out there that may work better, but all that starts with a trip to the doctor. Give it another shot and then if things still aren't working "tschock" has some very good advice. You might also want to read a new book by a UC Berkley honors student with severe ADHD about growing up with ADHD.
Appt coming up to discuss this and I am hoping he will switch me back to vyvanse and allow me to take it twice a day in order to get full coverage. Any advise on what to tell my Psych. at my Dr. Appt, or any research/evidence that I could read would be GREATLY appreciated!
I've now entered in the working world and my ability to not concentrate is taking a toll on my being able work done. I'm a graphics freelancer with an above average creative mind. However, when it comes to paperwork and business related things, it takes me forever or I cannot concentrate on one thing at a time. When it comes to drawing, my mind is like a laser and I completely zone out. However, when it comes to reading and writing, I can barely do that.
After I've done all of that, and after I'm about to just lay down and try and try ride it out I take a small swig of 'Pepto-Bismul' and for some reason it seems to neutralize the Vyvanse. The side-effects go away but so does the psychological stimulating feelings of Vyvanse. It's as if it snuffs it out almost completely. I don't know if it's a drug interaction that nobody knows about or if it thins my blood out so that I don't notice any of the effects of Vyvanse, I don't know.
I've been taking his 40mg vyvanse here and there and it made me feel fantastic. Then last week I took one and I felt like how all of you were explaining. I shrugged it off and just thought it was a bad weekend. Well today I was prescribed vyvanse. I've taken my first 50mg and I don't think i'm going to take the rest. I know I should try and see this out and take the prescription, I highly doubt I am going to. Aderol seems like it is the correct drug for ADD if given in the right quantities.
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?
They were bigger than usual, and my left was bigger than my right. I told the nurse about my eyes and wanted to go home. She called my parents, but left out the part about my eyes in the description she gave (I don't know why, either). My mother told me to take a second Motrin for my headache and go back to class. In my next class, I asked my friend about the condition of my eyes.
I work freelance, and i LOVE my job - normally happily moving from project to project, working year-round! These past 3 months... I've managed to finish only one project... I dont know if I'll be able to pay rent at this rate! I guess I could up my dosage, but I feel like maybe its time for a change... This brings me to my question! At my last visit, the doc mentioned switching meds. In particular, I've heard a lot about peoples positive experiences with Vyvanse.
i am beginning to think that i can no longer tolerate the vyvanse. besides the shakes and blurry vision, i feel like my heart is pounding at times, i notice little twitches here and there, i have trouble going to sleep sometimes, i have started having tightness in my chest and feeling short of breath. i have started to back off the vyvanse. i am opening up the capsule and taking about half of the medication.
I recently had to switch my add meds from adderall xr to vyvanse and I am on day 2 and I feel like I havnt taken anything. I am extremely tired, have anxiety with everything going on around me at once, and I cant concentrate at all, I walked around my kitchen for 15 minutes not knowing why i wass but knew there was a reason then finally got my car keys that i was needing to get in the first place. Is this normal?
I have always suffered from major depression and a mood disorder even though they don't come out and say it's bipolar, they treat is as such and it's helped. I've been on Abilify for a year now and I was doing so well but now I'm tired all the time, have no motivation, and feel overall blah! I see my pdoc next week and I wonder if I need a new mood stabelizer or a higher dose of Abilify. I'm even on Vyvanse for a "touch" of ADD and I still have no energy (Vyvanse is a stimulant).
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 think he was beginning to notice some of the side effects and put two and two together. Anyway, without telling me, he quit the Vyvanse cold turkey 15 days ago. He is still going thru withdrawal. Please, can someone help me? How long will this last? After he first quit taking it, he was angry, suicidal, tired, and was having flu-like symptoms every day.
(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...
She claims the adderall gives her more energy than the vyvanse so she takes it when she has a night that she is working late and so on. I am just making sure this is not harmful to her, I am a recoverying addict and am scared I am seeing the same signs in her.......
I found Vyvanse to work the best, and my doctor thinks Vyvanse is the best that's out there right now.
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.
