Vyvanse not lasting

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse not lasting

vyvanse

I prefer medical marijuana but we finally found something that worked. Vyvanse. 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.
First off, Vyvanse is not just prescribed to "children"... it is a medication for young people AND ADULTS who have been diagnosed (typically) with ADD, ADHD or a Learning Disability that significantly impairs Executive Functioning or Processing Speed. Do not delegitimize the treatment of a health issue for all those who NEED and take their meds as prescribed, just because others might abuse them.
The side effects were not caused by the V, but were caused by it not lasting long enough. If V is not working it is not going to cause him to have trouble sleeping. That is the ADHD. If he could get a ton of exercise in the afternoon, you would see a big difference. This is another very helpful link to Dr. Parkers site where he explains the Side effects in the afternoon when the stimulant wears off. http://www.corepsych.
I am considering switching to vyvanse or something similar. Ask about concerta also, I'm not sure how the two differ. You keep doing the next right thing and I pray you will have an awesome road ahead of you! Also if you would like to talk more, ever need help, ever just need someone to listen, or ANYTHING find me on FB and IM me. Landie Campbell . I would like to follow your story and know what you find out about your ADHD drugs and what your doctor says.
About 2 years ago I was prescribed vyvanse but decided to get off of it about halfway through my senior year. I'm a freshman in college now and recently saw my physiatrist during break and got a 1 month prescription. This is the first week I'm taking it again and I have been experiencing extreme paranoia late at night. Ive also been experiencing insomnia throughout the entire spring semester so far.
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 am going to get off sub later this year. (Not to make it sound easy, but I have a set date, time off work and I'm ready) my sub DR had me tested for ADHD, which I had a feeling I had, and I do. I'm not desperate for ADHD drugs like some are, they don't make me feel "good" but they do seem to help me get **** done :)...I have taken adderall before and know it helps with my issues, especially my lack of motivation, focus and follow through.
- If not Vyvanse, do you have any other/better suggestions that I can discuss with my Dr tomorrow? - If you think Vyvanse would be a suitable alternative, what dose do you think I should be trying? (My body is now used to 30mg of Adderall ir, 3 times a day = 90mg total) - Does anyone have any experience with (female) sex drive in relation to these meds? For the most part, with the adderall, my sex drive is definitely on the lower end of the scale...
30AM and felt fairly refreshed. The Vyvanse was of little help during the day but seemed to keep me awake at night. Wierd, eh?
+ Flashing visual transparent colors and/or strobe like effect with images in rapid succession lasting 20-30mins. + severe confusion where unable to get out of bed lasting 20-30mins followed by 2-3 hrs of confusion where im able to get up and move around but unable to concentrate or work with the feeling of almost being 1/2 asleep like I am there but not. RECENT SYMPTOMS DURING DAY : Lips, hand, legs, feet, arms may go tingly and/or numb with paint in joints or from joint down leg for example.
I took a 70 mg slow release vyvanse in order to stay up all night and study for a test later today at about 4 in the afternoon. At about four in the morning I took a 15-30 mg slow release focalin because I thought the effects of the vyvanse were gone. I don't have ADD so that may be part of the problem. My heart rate was very high, i was lightheaded at times, and my temp climaxed at 99.5, checked every twenty minutes or so.
Wellbutrin (300mg) Vyvanse (60mg) Valtrex (1g) Lamictal (200 or 300mg, not sure) Klonopin (1mg) Seasonique bc pill I've read that Wellbutrin and Lamictal and Klonopin are often used for POTS (those were prescribed by a psych bc of "anxiety" .... it's funny how a psych dr. inadvertently ends up treating POTS...).
That time frame can be from 3 to as long as 12 or more hours for a med like Vyvanse. So when you say the medicine is not working, I don't know if you mean at all or just that it is not working as long. If he is in school, have they reported any difference in him? If its just that the meds are not acting long enough, that can be a fairly easy fix by his doctor. In terms of being disrespectful, that kinda of comes with the age and exposure to other kids (if he is at school).
However, a specialist in ADHD in young adults (18-25) diagnosed me. I can't remember exactly all my symptoms and if we tried vyvanse alone too or not. But I do remember that my memory and concentration along with my mood were worse on the lower concerta and vyvanse combo than it was on a higher dose of concerta. I am not sure if this matters, but I have been told I am anemic (apparently my iron levels are very low)... and I have not been taking my supplements/vitamins.
You might want to check out Vyvanse. It is longer lasting and not as anxiety causing as ritalin I believe. Also, Two sites aimed at the adult ADD sufferer that you might want to check out are totallyadd.com and http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors.
I have had many patients tell me that 'none of the antidepressants work', and then after finally getting them to trust me, finding good medications for them. Too often they are prescribed by people who do not understand them adequately. I could deliver a baby if I had to, but I wouldn't try to sell that service to a patient!! Consider seeing a psychiatrist, even if you have a responsive pain doc.
I take one 300mg tablet at night before bed and it last 24 hours. 3 weeks ago my doctor but me on 50mg Vyvanse for ADD which didn't work causing withdrawal so he switched me to 20mg Adderall which also didn't work so he stopped me cold turkey. Somewhere during that 3 week period I began taking tramadol because it would relax me during the withdrawal from the other meds.
There is no way to raise her dose (and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to if we could) but this doseage is not lasting her all day at school. She takes her dose at 7:30 and the teachers say by 1:30 it seems to be gone. Also, the teachers have told me that she pulls her hair out and it's progressively gotten worse in the last few weeks. One of her friends tried to get her to stop yesterday and finally told the teacher who emailed me that she saw the clump of hair at her chair and it scared her.
because he had to stay in room for the night because he has been throwing temper tantrums for the last 3 night all lasting over 2 hrs.any suggestions on how to cope with this? i have recently talked to his dr.s and seem to be getting nowhere they say that there are services out there and they called someone for me and someone will contact me but as of yet nothing. i feel like my options are limited and i have three other kids to think of.
Also, he is on a pretty low dose and so it probably wears off at home. Talk to your doctor as this can be fixed. And there are also longer lasting meds like Vyvanse (which also can sprinkled on food). Finally, I would suggest buying the book "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. Its about $10 on Amazon and it will give you a lot of the information you apparently have not gotten. And you might want to check out this site for more ideas - http://helpguide.
The commonly prescribed drug by the doctors is sildenafil, which causes erections to be stronger and long lasting. It is not safe to take this drug without doctor’s advise. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
1. MEDS: Pexeva 20mg + Vyvanse 30mg x 9 mo. 2. RECENT UNDIAGNOSED PROBLEMS: • Symptoms upon waking only - 1 or 2 dialated pupils lasting 20-60mins. • Flashing visual transparent colors and/or strobe like effect with images in rapid succession lasting 20-30mins.
Well, you may not have grown tolerant to Adderall. I mean you have been off it for close to 9 months? And you had been on it for years, and didn't have those problems. The big change is your pregnancy and afterwards. You have had a lot of hormonal changes, which does change how your body is affected. You might just want to give it some more time - but I don't know how long you have been on it since restarting.
I mentioned that my daughter seemed just as inattentive as before, if not more so. I received a free month's trial of Vyvanse, along with a mild antidepressant-she also has a bedwetting issue, and Doc says it might help. I haven't started her on it yet. Want to do some research first. Hopefully this combination gets us on a new path. Doc said to take it easy on her for right now, let the meds start to take affect, and then start working with her again. I'll let everyone know how it goes...
That reminds me of the story of when I called the doc one when I had a period lasting 30 days and she yelled at me that is was not long enough to bother her with so I just let it go to the 45 days and when I had the appointment and she say the records that it lasted 45 days she asked why I did not call! Yeah - I don't consider that regulated or even normal and how that makes the doc happy - not sure...
Your note indicates that the diagnosis with your son is really not clear. The most likely explanation, though not the only possibility, is that he displays both Bipolar Disorder and ADHD. If so, the combination of Cencerta and Risperdal would be effective (contingent on dose).
A med like Vyvanse will last 8 to 12 hours. Getting the med to last long enough through the day is important. If it is not lasting long enough, then the dose is too low. And, you said he tried therapy and counseling. You don't try it. You keep doing it. There is no way that a one or two month session would help that much. And speaking of which, I also am curious as to what kind of docs you have been seeing.
My son is 12 now and has been medicated for ADD since he was 7. The best medication he has been on is Vyvanse & Clonodine. Teachers are not required to nor do they take the time to learn how to teach or deal with an ADD/ADHD/ODD child. It is really quit upsetting as a parent to know that we send our child with a mental problem to school who are taught by teachers who are not skilled to teach said child.
Just remember that while narcolepsy is a lifelong condition, it is not progressive. It is not going to get worse over time and it is not going to kill you. When will you hear the results of your MSLT?
