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.

He then prescribed to me the amphetamine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> (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).

The only thing that held me back from taking my own <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span>. Over the next hour and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span>, 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 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-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> a pill, and just the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span>. 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> 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 (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>, and i was doing fine for a while. then i lost my insurance and had to go off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span>, 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vyvanse</span> has taken on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span>, and I'll never get off of it.

Wondering if it slows down the absorption of Strattera? The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>half</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>life</span> 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?
