Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse half life

vyvanse

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.
hello, i am 29 years old and have struggled with add/adhd and depression (undiagnosed) my whole life. about a month ago i went to my family doctor because of concerns over a recently developed rapid heart beat (95 at rest). while i was there i brought up my add and depression symptoms. he refered me to a psych. my psych told me that vyvanse would help my add and my depression.
Grapefruit juice contains substances that prolong the time most drugs remain in the body - extending their half-life. This does not make the drugs ineffective, but may result in a higher dose than your physician may deem appropriate. The best thing to do is to ask the prescribing physician.
As someone who has struggled with food addiction and weight my entire life it was an unexpected miracle that Vyvanse COMPLETELY rid me of my food compulsion...I have to remind myself to eat? Can anyone calm me down? Confirm my fears? suggest something else?
I started feeling tired later in the day and cranky, so I asked my doctor to switch me to Vyvanse and did. Since taking Vyvanse, when I watch anime I can tell that I enjoy the story, but I just don't feel excited. I have felt a persistent headache for 3 days now (been on vyvanse for about a week) and I feel pedestrian at all times. I can't find the desire to watch television or go out, or even play any games.
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 again started taking it in August & took it 5 months straight, & actully had increased its dosage to 60mg early December. I ran out on the 21st & stopes taking anymore until January 3rd, the day we came back from Christmas break.
Will one mug of coffee in the a.m. Decrease the effect or half life of the 50mg. VYVANSE I take? I try and Avoid Sugar, VitaminC and anything Acidic(other than my one mug of black coffee) as I have read that these reduce the half life and effect of Vyvanse. I am a 56 yr old female RN. I was Just Diagnosed with ADHD June of 2013. I have struggled for years with this problem & used to self-medicate with caffeine all day long (black coffee) I work 13-15 hrs a day 3 days a week.
On an empty stomach, it takes about a half hour to kick in and always lasts (for me) about 12 hours. You only need to take one. Vyvanse has seriously changed my entire life. I am a much happier, less stressed, productive person. I have virtually no side effects except for a small decrease in appetite and mild to moderate when it wears off. I sleep like a baby, even though a side effect is insomnia. I'm so much more calm, neat, organized, motivated, punctual, and non-fidgety.
Will one mug of coffee in the a.m. Decrease the effect or half life of the 50mg. VYVANSE I take? I feel Terrible if I get up and Do Not drink my Coffee. I usually drink it, then take my Vyvanse and hour later.
Doesn't really mattter how you got it...we need to get rid of it. 5 years of my life with the quality of life of a goldfish. They need to realize this is becoming an epidemic....or acknowlege it. Lincoln had more fun at the theatre. LETS GET RID OF THIS CAEBV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Organ failiure or suicide or just being sedentary sets you up for a very much shortened life span if this doesn't go away...fast!
The only thing that held me back from taking my own life was the thought of my mother going through another suicide. Her sister had committed suicide in 1984. In August of 2003, at the age of 26 I went to see a counselor. I was then referred to a "psychiatrist" at which point I was "diagnosed" with clinical depression. I began counseling sessions and was prescribed the anti-depressant Zoloft. I would later learn that the psychiatrist misdiagnosed me.
It is full force for about an hour and a half. Over the next hour and a half, I begin to feel the slow decline. I can still concentrate and feel good but as more time passes, the more I can feel it slipping away. I begin to feel worse and helpless because I can feel the good feeling slipping away and I know that there is nothing I can do to stop it. I just wish it would last longer. As the rest of the day ticks by, my energy and focus decrease more and more until there is nothing left.
We went to the doctor, told her we didn't want her back on the concerta and she prescribed Vyvanse. Here we are, mid school year and are months into her picking again. It is totally out of control now and she has approximately 10-15 sores on her legs/hands. We clean, cover and wrap the areas every night and even have her wearing soft gloves & cotton tights at bed time. She has now started going past all this to get at them.
Focalin XR 20 mg caused me to have sever anxiety attacks at night, caused restlessness , but it did its job for my ADD it affected the rest of my life very badly because my hands and extremities where turning pale and felt numb. To treat the anxiety i started on Citalopram and this medication only made me very tired. (falling asleep in class). after talking with my counselor i started back on Add meds 2 days ago starting at 50mg Vyvanse.
But I wondered what would happen if I tried taking only one-half a pill, and just the other half if I needed it. That worked fine. Mostly I only used the 1/2 dose. See if a lower dosage works for you. The less of this garbage you take, the better.

Even at 2mg you're taking it in faster than your body can eliminate it due to the long half life. You may indeed have to bump your dose but give it a chance at 2mg before you do. Good luck.
I already know everything that you can possibly tell me about it and I don't much appreciate being lectured on it. I also smoke cigarettes, anywhere between half a pack to a full pack per day. I plan to quit in the future but all attempts thus far have proven futile. Anyway, about 3 months ago I obtained a bottle of Vyvanse, containing 50 30 milligram capsules.
Was on WAY too many meds at too high of dosages (Vyvanse 70mg, Clonidine increasing dosage). Temper Tantrums/Rages that could last for hours. In a year and a half, we've made great progress. We cut/changed his meds. He's now on Vyvanse 30mg twice a day, Tenex 1/2 tablet twice a day, and melatonin 1/2 tab at night. We rarely have temper tantrums/rages and the every day destruction of our house is under control.
working my way up with adderall xr, my tolerance seemed to keep going up, then the 30mg 1x day just didnt work so my doctor prescribed 30 mg tablets 2x day, and at the same time my psychiatrist had started me on vyvanse, and i was doing fine for a while. then i lost my insurance and had to go off vyvanse, and only coul;d get my adderall if i payed $150-$200 for a doctor visit plus $65 for script.
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 studying 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.
but all in all the positive side effects outweigh the negative. I'm stoked about the huge toll that vyvanse has taken on my life, and I'll never get off of it.

Wondering if it slows down the absorption of Strattera? The half life of pantoprazole is 2.8 hours. Its possible it could slow down the absorbtion and then the strattera hits you all at once. I'll see what I can find on that. How long have you been taking pantoprazole?

My now 6 year old was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 4 he has tried 3 different medications is currently on Vyvanse 20mg which does not help with his impulsiveness or hyper activity at school.
and conerta can cause seizures and can not be reversed once they start with out trying medicines and other ways may have all his life,and now not sure how long his life will be, and will have to be taken care of by someone if something where to happen to me or my husband. the side effects are not worth it because you can be dealing with not only the add or adhd but other things as well.
just come to terms with, you don't need to understand everything, just do your best to get as mentally healthy as possible. mental illness is for life. but we can learn to deal with it and stay on our meds. i take abilify as my antipsychotic for mania, it only mildly helps but it's a lot better than not taking it and it works different for different people. i tried zyprexa (orlanzapine) years ago and it did nothing for me but what works for one may not work for another.
