Avatar n tn By about sat around 2p I was in hell, and really didn't know why. Put two and two together and was beside myself when I called a pharmacist and said I was withdrawing and "coming down". I was so confused and then angry. Got home immediately took adderall, ten minutes...was a completely different person, I was on top of the world. That scared me. Next day, assertively questioned doc, and she gave me the B.S. of blabber to cover her ***.
Avatar f tn My friend daughter is taking adderall and vyvanse together for school but she been having more problems with her misbehaving is this normal.
Avatar m tn i have taken vyvanse, 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.
Avatar m tn One year and a month I've been on Concerta, Adderall xr &IR then I was put on Adderall IR & xr together by my Doctor. Then when I was to get a refill they gave me Vyvanse, this was in May of last year. At First I never was so happy in my life but now on 60 mg it does nothing at all I have in the past even had to take two in order to function attentive wise.
1575110 tn?1334668235 Hello, I also have adult ADD and I have tried both Concerta and Vyvanse. My doctor wanted me to try Concerta for a few weeks and I didn't like it at all. It didn't agree with me. It made it feel depressed and NOT motivated to do everyday things. I was on a 36 mg dose and when I went back to my doctor I told him I hated it. 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.
Avatar f tn I've heard positive feedback about it helping with depression, but nothing really on its effectiveness with adhd. I just stopped taking vyvanse and was put on this, and was nervous I would have trouble, due to that I'm used to taking the stimulant drugs. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!
Avatar n tn I have severe bipolar disorder, but i am Lso on 50 mg of vyvanse. Doctors try to avoid vyvanse and adderall ect with bipolar because it causes mania. Adderal is not used for bipolar. For bipolar i take abilify (aripiprizole) 10mg and 1000mg of divalproex sodium.
Avatar f tn I then asked my daughter to give me her bottle which she got last week and I find theres no powder in her her Vyvanse pills either. I went to pharmacy and she looked at me like I was a druggy and asked if anyone took our pills. I have no one who would do that or whos going to sit and open each pill. I then thought well maybe the medication is evaporating? could that be? Now I need to go see our doctor call Walgreens corporate and my insurance and Who else? Someones stealing our medication.
Avatar n tn I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.

In fact I waited a whole 24 hours until my last Adderall pill to take Vyvanse just to make sure I was safe. When I began Vyvanse treatment it really worked. It kept me focused I was pretty much where I wanted to be. 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.
Avatar f tn After that there was no effect. Vyvanse has caused none of the ups and downs that bothered me the most with Adderall and other meds. Obviously the medication will effect a 5-6 differently, but at the right dose we should all respond fairly similarly to the medication. A couple questions if I may.... Can I ask you what Vyvanse side effects you are frightful of? Also, who it was that diagnosed your son as ADHD? A psychiatrist/psychologist or a pediatrician?
990354 tn?1307136486 I mean I have SO many extra pills and every now and then I take 40 adderall instead of the vyvanse all together. I know which days I can work around but I don't take the medicine for fun, it stressful enough with or without meds. I don't think anybody with ADHD really takes adderall for pleasure. I'm not trying to attack anybody just trying to be helpful ! Hope my post shows the complexities of ADHD management.
Avatar m tn Xanax is especially scary because many people can develop a high tolerance very quickly, and have to continually take more and more. And since adderall can actually cause depression-type symptoms, it seems really strange that your doc would treat your depression with it. Adderall should really only be taken by individuals with ADD/ADHD(and then only those whom the disorder affects severely) or narcolepsy.
Avatar m tn But he promised me that the issues I was having with feeling ill, insomnia, and no appitite would lessen on Vyvanse. And that the nasty, gross stimulant feeling I got from Adderall would go away. And he was right about everything and then some. And believe me if there is a side effect to have I will have it. Whether I am imagining it our not, almost every medicine I have taken for anything in my life has bothered me in someway. But not the Vyvanse... The onset is very smooth and comfortable.
Avatar m tn question about the Adderall AND the sub jump....since you have abused the Adderall....how bout getting the dr that prescribes your Adderall to switch you to another med for your ADHD like Vyvanse as you mentioned in another post? That way your ADHD would be addressed, but your history and the trigger of abusing the Adderall won't be going off in your head? What do you think? It's time to stop chasing the dragon....you CAN DO THIS......
Avatar m tn The patient becomes toxic to the amphetamine, angry, irrational, can’t sleep, can’t eat, and can become dangerously destructive. The Adderall or Vyvanse often gets blamed. The Prozac and the Paxil are the problem. More about Adderall in a later post. Read more: http://www.corepsych.com/2006/11/adderall-prozac-and-paxil-problem-not-solution/#ixzz34s4dNkML This would explain the symptoms you described. Read the above link. Print it out and take it to your doctor. Its not the stim meds.
Avatar n tn I would probably talk to the doctor about bringing them off this medicine. I am 36 and couldn't tolerate Adderall, i was nervous, almost paranoid, moody..and it eventually seemed to make my ADD worse. I'm off it now and feel a thousand percent better. It took me about 5 months though before my body started making enough of it's own dopamine and I stopped feeling fatigued and depressed (it was progressive though). I take 5htp now and L tyrosine, both can help with ADD.
Avatar f tn I prescribed60 mg of adderall but one week I had to take left over phentermine and 10mg adderall and my focusing was great and energy and I still do take 1/3 of phentermine a day.
Avatar n tn 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. She crashed later about 24 hours after her last pill and slept for 13 hours. Then when she woke up on Thursday she went to school without taking her 25 mg cause her heart was still pumping.
Avatar f tn I agree that the two medications you are on seem like an odd combo. I took Adderall in the past but felt very jittery and anxious. Vyvanse does not give me that feeling. Additionally, although I was not looking for something to help with weight loss, I did lose quite a bit of weight. In other words, there may be 1 medication to solve both issues. Just a thought....
Avatar f tn Why is my 'shrink' trying to treat my Adult ADD with Bubropion HCL SR (100mg tab 2X a day)? Is this the right med for me? Good grief...it didn't even cut out my smoking. Both of my adult children are on Adderall and are doing fine. My doc keeps telling me that Concerta & Adderall are 'too addictive' ... what the heck ... I am not looking to get high or anything ... I just want to be able to have a med to make my ADD manageable.
Avatar m tn I previously last month took one week of vyvanse and had horrible anxiety at only 10 mg. I stopped it after 1 week and my anxiety lasted an entire week. I want off the meds and want to try doing other things to cope. However no one including the pharmacist believes this is causing withdrawal. I have gone through opiate withdrawals several times and I know what they feel like and this is it. I also get horrible tension headaches in the med as well.
Avatar f tn 4) My counselor and I are planning to have me go to a psychiatrist and ask about Adderall. I've taken both Stratera and Vyvanse in the past, and several anti depressants, etc. I don't think I realized my symptoms were caused by ADHD. Because I have childhood documentation, I may be able to get on a controlled substance. Doctors hesitate to put people on controlled substances for obvious reasons. I'm not worried about it, in spite of the addiction I just kicked.
Avatar n tn I finally went in—after researching my symptoms, putting two and two together, and talking to my grandmother (she had hashis and cancerous nodules resulting in a TT)—again for blood work. I demanded a thyroid test because I was done, I was miserable. The results came back & here I am. I just started on Levo this week & following up with an endo in July. I recommend getting your thyroid tested ASAP. I've never gotten a doctor to do a full thyroid pannel...
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar f tn So then I started on Adderall XR and was fine for awhile. Although I do like Vyvanse 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.
Avatar m tn Nothing's fun unless I take vyvanse while doing it, otherwise I just rest in bed and try to shutdown my mind. Suicidal thoughts occur every night, I just want my hell to end. Can anyone tell me, anyone ... What the **** Is wrong with me?
Avatar m tn I started to try different doses of Vyvanse and Adderall, starting at 10mg Vyvanse and going up to 50mg, and starting at 5mg Adderall (IR) and increasing to 10, at most, 4x a day. All of these medications seemed to increase my depressive symptoms, and since I wasn't really retaining much or cognizant of how I was doing, I ended up going three weeks without touching my homework, going to class or talking to my friends.
Avatar m tn I don't know what the difference between Provigil and Vyvanse is. I do have a sample box of Provigil so know that I was on that and can't remember why we went with Vyv??? I do know that with Vyvanse I don't have any crash at all. I am very lucky, maybe. I do know that stress spikes the fatigue and even with the Vyvanse I get messed up and need to rest and am able to nap when I need to. It isn't like speed or amphetamine for me.

This is from http://www.corepsych.com/2006/11/adderall-prozac-and-paxil-problem-not-solution/ I mention this because perhaps your problems with the anti-anxiety meds was due to the above.
