Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse for studying

vyvanse

i have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>, and adderall (unprescribed) on a couple of occasions to help me with my school work, but this afternoon i had one of the worst experiences of my life. i had purchased a 70 mg vyvanse pill, took 1/4 of it yesterday and the other 3/4 this morning, so today i was on about 50 mg.
The only thing I am lacking is motivation and memory when it comes to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> exams. I have taken a few 30 and 40 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> pills just several times over the past couple of weeks and have experienced tremendous effects on my studying and concentration abilities. I have recently gotten ahold of a 60 mg pill and am wondering if that dosage is too strong for me since I do not have a disorder and have not been taking vyvanse religiously. If anyone has some sort of input, please reply.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Though all of this has happened, we have only just begun to test if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> is right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me and can help me concentrate. And it does, for a short while. But for me, it's already starting to look like a terrifying roller coster of tall, steep ups and plummeting, spiraling downs. That definitely doesn't sound like the "twelve-hour consistency" slogan that they advertise. Even so, I do not know how this medication will end up working as time progresses.
So then I started on Adderall XR and was fine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> awhile. Although I do like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> better and next month will be switching back to it. But the thing of it is, we all know med's that treat ADHD are stimulants. They differ slightly depending on the brand, but all in all they are usually stimulants. These stimulants, which ever they may be, are used to treat ADHD for the purpose that someone who has ADHD has imbalanced dopamine levels.
I'm 24 years old and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> in bba. I've been suffering from depression, frustration, sleep problem, poor concentration, delayed decission, negetive thought, hopelessness,avoid friends, fear about sex and serious memory problems. Poor memory hamper my daily life. I cant remember what i talked, what i did, what i ate in the morning. Sometimes i forget friends name or other normal things. I cant describe what happened infront of me or cant say what other say to me.
All of these tasks in my mind made me feel very scatterbrained, which I incorrectly thought was caused by the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>. After being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 8-9 months, I decided to stop (still continued on the Lexapro). After a few months, I noticed that I would still occasionally get scatterbrained in the same types of situations, which proved that it was not caused by the vyvanse.
I began taking adderall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> my freshman year at college. Then I got a pretty nice prescription for them in October 2008 but did not take nearly as much as I was prescribed. But now I have built up quite a dependency on them. Before I would take 20mg XR a day early in the morning to study alll day then 30 now 40mg XR which is also beginning to lose its effects. I am currently an undergraduate and will be taking the MCAT on September 4th.
After 7-10 10 milligram Adderall tablets(taken two or three at a time with at least 4-6 hour interval in between) and day and a half of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> without sleep, I started feeling quite weird; my heart began beating very fast(~130 BPM), and my extremities began to tingle. My dad drove me to the hospital where, after lying on a hospital bed for a couple hours, they told me that I would be fine.
I don't really want to take another medication as we'll, however I do not want to stop taking the dex because for the first time ever I'm able to function and accomplish things. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> example I've always started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> things and never finished them, last week I received my first qualification! I've read about a lot of people getting addicted to it, and to be honest it does frighten me, so the last week I've cut back to half my dose which is 15mg daily.
I have two questions that might be related or overlapping.. 1) I'm 21 and since year 1 in primary school, I've been struggling to stay focused.. My teachers have always went mad because "I don't focus".. It has always been hard for me to finish my homework, or my studying without my mothers help; she has always set the plans and helped me arrange my time.. She has usually sat next to me and read my studies with me..
But I feel terrible almost all the time -- severe fatigue, tremendous difficulty concentrating and focusing (and, of course, getting my work done), body aches (especially in the left shoulder), etc. My doctor last week prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> to help boost energy levels and focus, and that seems to help a little bit, but only a little bit. I'm doing my very best to keep it all together for my sons, who have no idea I'm feeling this way. I am absolutely determined to feel better.
My sons med cost him $120 every 3 months and he takes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>, which works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> him. We all need to give support to each other as well.
(If you read my prev post, youll know that i was almost at 200lbs at one point and i'm now down to 148, but mainly because of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my adhd which suppresses my appetite....and as far as proportions, almost ALL my weight is carrie in my upper back. i don't have the fatty hump on the neck for cushings, but the fact that i carry it in my face and my back drives me crazy because no one in my family carries weight like that but me.
My doctor put me on 50mg's per day, 15mg's on waking 15mg around lunch time 10mg's late afternoon 10mg's before bed My first day was good i was quite happy and energized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> once and besides a funny tummy, bit of dizzyness and no appetite. but only slept for 3 hours :\ is that quite common when initially starting dexamphetamine? Today i'm feeling pretty crappy.
It is basically a leagal speed that doc's are handing out way to freely. I went to my regular doc and asked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> it, she asked me a couple of questions and then just gave me the prescription. I was WAY too EASY! I became addicted and the ONLY reason I was able to stop is because I found out I was pregnant. Stopping the pain medication wasn't as easy because it's supposedly not bad for the baby. But the adderall has to be bad I'm sure. If you can stop now go ahead and stop.
I know someone that I care about dearly who takes 25 mg of Adderall a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> ADD. The other night she was taking pills like candy and going insane with them and just swallowing them. She took about 280 -300 mg of adderall all in less than a couple of hours was basically like on speed. She is 120 pounds, 16 years old and is about 5'4''. She couldnt eat and was having panic attacks, and puked, but refused to get help. She wouldnt let me help her and i was afraid of her.
I know rock bottom is different <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> everyone, but the real rock bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me was losing a girl i deeply loved. At first, I though "How could she be doing this to me?! She knows I need help. w/this stuff and shes just going to throw me out to the dogs? I thought every thing we did was as a team. My solution was to leave the country.
he is brilliant but he does not concentrate unless he loves the subject so much even then he does not make any effort in anything he does not listen to anything or anybody even if we are tooooooooooooooo kind with him he is doing really bad at school,he may bot pass this year reading and writing are great problems to him we tried to make him join a sport but he never stay in any long enough,,swimming,karate,,basketball,,volleyball,,horse riding,,,,,,,,,,he gets interested and when he finds th
tried a few things suggested by various docs and my psych has been most helpful. Currently he has me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> (currently 70mg). I think it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> kids with ADD or something like that but for adults without ADD it works as a stimulant. It seems to be effective once it gets me out of bed and into my first espresso... Coming off it is another story and takes a boatload of pills to try to get my into sleep mode and it starts all over again.
Also, that in agreement with your doctor, you try some nutritional products, especially the magnesium I mentioned. I'm on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> ADHD, and it does help, but it doesn't solve everything, I still have attentional problems; so, looking deeper into nutrition is a wise idea. I'm still learning about supplements and planning to try things.

You have to remember that each person is different and therefore each dose is different (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> every person). This could be the correct dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> you because like you said, you were really hyperactive. Hope that helps you! good luck with everything!
I take pain meds, and I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE for THAT TO ANYBODY I am like you TIRED OF PAIN I also take vyvanse which is a time released stimulant, and Hydrocodone, and also Lyrica and I have Xanx on hand for anxiety, which is always present with pain, but I don't like to take, it makes me tired. I still have pain, but I finally have a pretty good regiment that works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> and Lyrica are expensive, but I have a discount card for both and the insurance pays too, my co-pay is $25.
I have seen this before with a child of her age, and she had a medical condition and was unable to hold her bladder or sense the urgency in her bladder. This little girl was extremely embarrassed and this was a big issue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> her. We made a schedule <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> her to use the bathroom. She went to the bathroom before meals and after meals, and once per hour - even if she didn't have to go, we made it a habbit for her to go to the bathroom. This helped reduce the number of accidents.
Another member has recommended that I look into Low Dose Naltrexone LDN which will be part of a very long, indepth interview with this new guy... as well as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>. A fight I have been on with the local insurance - to get back on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> that two years. The only stimulant that seems to work for my chronic fatigue! They have forced me on Amphetamine Salts ER 20mg which is like a sugar pill and has started to give me nightmares! My psychiatrist disagrees. Another idiot! Sorry for the rant.
My therapist suggested I start looking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> answers on the internet again... I have been cured and off all meds for two years but still suffering and do not know where to turn. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, Systemic Yeast Infection, crazy weight gain (50 lbs), gurd, muscle weakness and the list goes on and on! At my last liver docs appt they "apologized for destroying my life" and said that maybe I would recover in 6 or 7 years.
I took adderall illegally on and off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a while (buy it from friends). I would use it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>studying</span> and various long term attention needed tasks. While I agree it does work, its not what we need. What is ADHD or ADD other than people who can't pay attention? What does it take to pay attention? PRACTICING PAYING ATTENTION! Just like any other thing you want to get better at, it takes practice.
