Vyvanse crash

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse crash


I started Vyvanse back in August 2010, and it was the miracle that I've been searching for. Over a span of 4 years, I've taken stimulants including: Concerta, 30mg Adderall IR, and 30mg Adderall XR. Concerta gave me migraines. Adderall XR completely sucked. Adderall IR was the best medication that I found until Vyvanse. Now I think Adderall is horrible in comparison. I've been taking 30mg of Vyvanse for a few months now. This has been my adjusted dose from trying 20mg, 30mg, and 50mg.
Anyone out there know anything about this drug? My 8 year old son was on Strattera until yesterday. He had been on it for about 4-5 months. It was helping his behavior and his grades improved SO much, I really hated that we had to change, but it was causing rapid heartbeat and it was too rapid!! He didn't say anything, didn't know it wasn't supposed to do that. So, when we discovered it, I took him back to the doctor and we changed to VYVANSE.
I have been switched from Cymbalta (weight gain) to Fetzima (weight loss) and additionally 50mg of Vyvanse for adult ADD. My symptoms of depression have subsided. I do not notice any huge difference in my attention span and still feel distracted when reading, unable to focus. I also feel tired and appear to crash about every afternoon regardless of when I take the medication, which is in the morning.
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 am a 19 year old male who just started college. I started taking vyvanse since the beginning of August. It has helped alot with my focus and concentration but I get jitters, I have become socially awkward, my anxiety and depression has increased, and the crash I get from it gives me horrible headaches. The crash also makes me not want to be socially active. What should I do? and are there any other good ADHD meds that I should talk to my doctor about?
I have a question about Vyvanse. Currently, I am on 70mg. The problem is it wears off after 4-5 hours and I experience the worst crash and depression! I have experimented and taken 2 Vyvanse 70mg in one day.. one at 7am & the other at 1pm. That dosage lasted me until 9pm that night. I have read tons of articles about this wearing off on ADHD websites & forums.I also read where doctors are prescribing up to 210mg of Vyvanse. The most common high dose is 140mg.
old ffemale who was put on Vyanse to help with my focus and concentration.I have been on Vyvanse for 1 1/2 months. The original dose wa 30mg. but I didn't see a difference so I was upped to 70mg. 2 weeks ago. The past week I have felt very unmotivated to do anything. I don't even want to talk to my friends, I just feel like being alone all the time. This is partially what I went on the drug to get rid of but it's making it worse.
I am going to go off Vyvanse due to severe anxiety when crash hits. No dose seemed to fit for me. But, I lost the weight I was needing to lose (20 lbs) and if I go off Vyvanse, will it come back on with a vengance? I have heard hunger just is out of control when stopping this drug. So I am afraid to stay on it and I am afraid to go off it.
He then prescribed to me the amphetamine, Vyvanse (30mg). I was to take it the very next morning after breakfast. I have had very few problems with the my other medications, like the antidepressant, Zoloft (50mg), and the antihistamine, Zyrtec (10mg). But I have started to notice some very disturbing and confusing side effects the same day I started taking this. On Friday, I had taken one pill in the morning and left to go to school (I had taken my other medications the night before).
I have just been recently diagnosed with adult onset ADHD,I was prescribed 5mb abilify and 50mg Vyvanse. I was so glad to read your article on vyvanse because I was sooo scared to take it til today when I started. I needed the meds but didnt want my appetite suppressed like my son gets when he is taking focalin. What do you think about an 11yr old taking it? Also would it help with my son's suppressed appetite he has with focalin? Please help!
I've been prescribed many different stimulant medications for my ADD and mood disorder/ Depression. 1. I am taking 70mg of Vyvanse but it only lasts 4-5 hours tops followed by a significant crash including anxiety and sometimes irritability. 2. I have taken 20mg of Ritalin but it's' similar to vyvanse, lasting short and crashing hard 3. I took 30mg of adderoll and had absolutely no affect, I may have even doubled up yet still nothing happened. 4.
All the sudden my knees have gone week. I can't jump without feeling a kind of pain in my knees. When I was 12 I got into a car crash with my mom and got 3 bulging disks. Could that be involved with any of this?
He did up my gabapentin, gave me vyvanse for the fatigue, also gave me baclofen (spelling) for the spasms. Hoping the meds get me through this week. He also said that if I start getting worse then to call him right away because there is no sense in suffering if there is something that may ease it. Since taking the extra gabapentin, and the vyvanse I feel a little alive lol.
I had difficulty retaining information developing the habit of teaching and reteaching techniques in my field. Since my dx and the addition of medication (Vyvanse 30mg), I can concentrate for the typical 6hrs with most ADHD medication however during the "crash" phase, I return experiencing the typical sysmptoms along with agitation.
I used to be on Vyvanse and am thinking asking to get back on it for a while at least...any input or supportive words are appreciated...I would love to hear a story about someone who got through it all...I never have.
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 went to my doctor about 9 months ago and am now on Vyvanse and Fluoxetine. Although my depressions meds should be stronger I have not yet made that jump as I am worried about the reaction of the 2. Thus far though they have worked very well together. Vyvanse is a newer ADD med and I specifically requested something other than Adderall due to side affects.
I have also heard of this one called vyvanse. I would lokk online and see all the risks on them all and then talk to your doctor about wha he/she thinks is best for you child. Good luck.
it is common for bipolar patients to want to go off their meds, i go through it too and it always leads to a crash of some sort. if you are mentally ill you need to take your meds even when you feel good or you could have a major mood episode. if you aren't happy with your meds talk to your doctor, there are a lot of different meds out there but you have to be patient and give the meds time to work, and be persistant with your doctor. that's what they get paid for.
Now she is taking 40mg of Vyvanse. It seems to work as well as Adderall and has no GI side effects however, she now does this hand movement thing....its not a tick, and seems to be both voluntary and involuntary. Like sometimes she is aware of it but is drivin to do it subconsiously. She places her hands(both of them), palm facing outwards, to her mouth and wiggles all ten of her fingers rapidly into the air.
whoah.. i just switch from adderall xr 20mg to vyvanse 50mg.. i like the vyvanse so far, less anxiety with it, but anyways i had the same problem with the adderall.. i would drink so much alcohol, which is something you should not do if you take any type of psychiatric medications.
i still don't sleep fantastic, i wake up way too early, but i don't wake up feeling like i have been run over by a truck anymore, either, except on a rare occasion. i also take vyvanse, which is an add medication. it has done wonders for me as far as my energy goes. not that i have tons of energy, but without it, i pretty much just crash and fall asleep on the couch.
//www.squidoo.com/vyvanse is recommended. Read more: http://www.corepsych.com/2009/06/vyvanse-dosage-for-adhd-finding-the-safe-top-of-the-window/#ixzz2uZTnIWvJ This if from this link - http://www.corepsych.com/2009/06/vyvanse-dosage-for-adhd-finding-the-safe-top-of-the-window/ I think its worth checking out. And yes, your new doctor is part of the problem because the doctor is not used to working with you. I would try what she is suggesting and slowly work upwards.
IDK if I had a withdraw from DXM because the vyvanse/coke crash probably hid it lol. ONE THING I FORGOT TO ADD, I was depressed because I used to be a swimmer and I was used to working out REALLY F*CKING HARD and I pretty much went from that to not exercising at all. Once I ran for the first time in a year, my weed consumption plummeted because I didn't feel the need to smoke it anymore even tho I still do just for sh*ts and giggles.
Example, my son has proprioceptive issues with his sensory system. This gives him the impulse to 'crash'. He'd crash his bike and follow it up with a wrestle out of impulse to get that impact into his nervous system. I have found 'safe' ways for him to crash and get that impact to take the place of unsafe ways. Flapping arms during tv------ it is an impulse to alert himself or calm himself as it can do both.
He says that the other kids are saying things to him and the teachers states she has not heard any of it. With the Vyvanse he does not have the crash at night like he did with the Daytrana but he is WIDE open. Is there a medication out ther that might be another alternative. How about Stretara or Concerta? Any and All input is greatly appreciated.
I suppose I was also wondering if my psych MEDS will help with the PAWS. Also during PAWS, would Vyvanse or adderal help? I'm feeling confident that I'll survive this. I've been simply avoiding withdrawals for years though, so it is a bit scary for me.
Regular Adderall poops out With in 4 hours and makes for a hard crash and mood swings. 18mgs is acually a pretty low dosage for her to act that way. Any amphetamine can cause "bad behavior" its one of the side effects. But usually you see that with much higher dosages and with people abusing the drug for a period of time. I took 60 to 70mgs of adderall a day and anger or being "short" was never a issue.
it works great for me, more energy and more focus . . . but I have learned that I have to pace my self or I will crash too. If you are worried about weight gain, I have found that Provigil actually decreases my appetite. Good luck!
sometimes it seems i can have panic attacks for a couple of days at a time, and when i crash i am so exhausted because i am not sleeping well again and that is the pattern . ...my brain feels like im going dense, like i can't focus on things at times can remember things, can actually leave the house and leave the stove on ...
