Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft with vyvanse

zoloft

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.
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).
He mentioned that there is a new medication called Vyvanse and asked if I would like to try it. With nothing to lose, I said yes. I do like Vyvanse. It works for me, I am happy, motivated, and just feel more like me. I don't have any side effects from it either. I've not heard of Daytrana before. So that must be a new one as well? Also I used to take Adderall XR and that is a great medicine as well. I just took it for so long that it started to not work and help me the same way anymore.
I had some tension and anxiety but I could cope with it. Vyvanse was giving me the clarity that I was looking for with some side-effects that I could manage, at the time. Also I was placed on a starter dose of: Vyvanse 1xDay - 30mg Now we're in week 3 of my Vyvanse treatment and I'm experiencing some 'extreme' levels of anxiety. Basically I'm experiencing full blown 'panic attacks' almost everyday. I feel like I'm dying, going crazy, like my heart's going to explode, blah, blah, blah.
I am finally sleeping better and able to start getting out and doing things. I don't know what it was with that Vyvanse but I'm throwing all the bottles away, they changed my dose 3 times. So it's sad to toss $400 in the garbage but at least I have my mind back and I can still get out of the house now!!
I have aspergers and zoloft helps me deal with my environment. I can handle noises, changes, and people in general much better now, I do not get angry or phobic so soon any more. So i guess my environment thinks this has improved my behaviour ; ) Just watch it: zoloft has to be started and stopped very carefully,with the help of a physician !
What vitamins /supplements at night should you not take with lunesta /zoloft? Can you take fish oil? Also Vyvanse //// anything to stear clear of... Vitamin /supplement wise? Is Vitamin C safe? and a Honest green tea? Or Zinc??? Since it is that time of year of sick stuff spreading/// Please let me know....
My 14 yr old son has a diagnosis of ADHD and ODD. He is on Vyvanse. Intuniv and Zoloft. He attends a private school for children with Behavioral and Developmental Challenges. The therapist we work with has mentioned some mood disorders as well. We tried Abilify for awhile, which had increased his appetite and he has gained 25 pounds in 3 months. We took him off this medicine because of the appetite issues, as well as not seeing a big difference.
Hello. I have recently been prescribed zoloft and dextroamfetamine (vyvanse). My dose has just been raised to 150 zoloft and 50 vyvanse. I am feeling dizzy, I'm sweating like crazy lying down in a cold room, and I've thrown up a few times since I took the increased dosages earlier today. Occasionally it feels like my heart has butterfly wings too. Am I just having panic attacks? I heard the dex can increase anxiety... I don't have insurance here...
The strattera was not working...even the max dosage, so he is now on vyvanse. I think it helps with his focus, but he is still very argumentative, particularly at home. At school, he likes to be the class clown, as well. The eating...well, my son is the same. He eats all his food, and then begs for others. It's really embarrassing, isn't it. It's like people look at me like 'there's that mother of that boy'. Nobody knows until they walk in our shoes do they?
He has been on ADHD medication since he was 4 and now newly diagnosed with OCD. They think the Vyvanse is making the OCD sympotms worse. I can see this since we placed him on Zoloft for the OCD things have improved somewhat. I feel so bad for him becuase our personalities are so different. I am very melow and laid back but also Type A. He is constantly getting into trouble over little things at school almost daily. He also makes me very frazzled throughout the day.
He is taking meds that I feel couter act one another....reperidone.25mg 2 x day, vyvanse 30 mg 1 x a day, zoloft 1/2 25mg a day, and methyphidate 10 mg 1 x a day in afternoon. Help. Does these different medicines seem necessary. He is still have concentration issues.
I dont know if it would be the medications that I am on but they are zoloft 100mg, vyvanse 50mg daily. I told my doctor and he gave me muscle relaxers and they dont seem to help. I also feel dizzy, and very sensitive to light and sound. my feet and hands sweat constantly. please help! I am tired of twitching.
Of course I weaned him off and after 2 years, he is finally normal again and only takes Vyvanse for his ADHD. The Vyvanse has worked great and he has been taking it for 1 year. When my son went off the zoloft after 2 months his tics decreased and most of the side effects went away. I told my doctor that I took him off since I had told her before that he was having problems and all she did was raise the dose.
Dextrosmphetamine 10mg, Vyvanse 70mg, and Zoloft 50mg in the AM and then Abilify 5mg at night. He is a very quiet child and I worry with taking all these meds he's anger issues will get worse. The doctor says he has both long term and short term memory loss and anxiety. I don't believe either. He can recall things both old and new just fine.

I have spoken to his neurologist and he said that he needs a mood stabilizer so my son will now be taking Abilify 5 mgs everyday along with the Zoloft and Vyvanse. Please keep your fingers crossed that this will work. The school is talking about pulling him out of his regular class and putting him in a special ed class because of the interruptions he causes. I hope the medicine calms him down enough so that he can stay in the class he is in now because, he doesn't cope well with change.
Hello and thanks for taking my question. In July 2008 I switched over from Zoloft and Invega to Wellbutrin and Cymbalta. At that time, these were my only medications. In August 08, when I stood up from my chair, my legs had terrible tremors. They were so bad that I had to hold onto the desk. This still happens today. I also experience leg tremors when descending stairs - but not going up. I get minor tremors while going from a standing to a sitting position.
My daughter, 9 years old, is bi-polar, takes Depakote, Risperdal and Zoloft. She has been stable for almost a year now :) however, is not focused on anything, failing in school because she does not pay attention, gets out of her seat 30 times a day and is the same way at home.
20mg strataline, 50 mg vyvanse (Note, all these symptoms were there before vyvanse, it is the only thing that makes me feel alright for periods of time) Also note, i have an abnormal rash, that even with antibiotic/steroid ointment has been on my right wrist to side of pinky. Dry, itchy, patchy, skin that scabs up and bleeds. It began around the time of my first panic attack 2 years ago ( I've heard this may be a sign of other conditions) My doctor said it is probably just psoriasis.
I am on a anti-depressant (Zoloft), (Vyvanse) for ADHD and birth control. I am adopted so I am not sure of my family history. I have never had any digestive issues until early last December. The first thing I noticed is when I went to the bathroom I had a hard time and did not feel like I was completely emptying my bowls. I had random pain when I was at school in my lower quadrants that would gradually get worse and go away then come back later.
My question is about my current dosage of Adderall. But first, I'd like to share my background with those of you reading this. Bear with me, this post is very long. I was finishing the last months of undergrad I found myself extremely depressed. It came to the point where I could not wake up in the morning without crying. I was thinking of committing suicide nearly every single day. I couldn't put my finger on what was causing the depression.
My son was diagnose at the age of 5 with ADHD, OCD and anxiety. They put him on concerta and zoloft. When he was put on the Zoloft, I told the psychiatrist that I did not like this idea and that I was scared of what could go wrong with the med. She explained that this would help him and he would be fine. After 1 month of taking Zoloft, he started hitting anyone that tried to discipline him.
Right now im currently on an ADHD medication called vyvanse and I started that in october and Im also on zoloft which I started in august of 2007. Till this day I feel that my symtoms are worrsening everyday, I feel very week, sick and simple activitys cause shortness of breath. None of the doctors I'v been to know whats wrong. But were still looking at celiac, lupus, lyme and maybe lymphoma. Its just so hard for me to live like this, I cant exercise or do anything anymore. Please help!
Ryannn94, First of all, I am very sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time; not only medically but with your friends, school, and stresses of everything else. I can surely sympathize with you and remember the confusion, frustration, and anger of emotions I felt trying to sort through everything. PLEASE HANG IN THERE!!!! First, some kinda good news: I have experience with the medications you are taking. I take them both now and have for a long time.
