Adhd vyvanse

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd vyvanse


Avatar n tn I assume you are taking vyvanse for ADHD? A side affect of vyvanse is anxiety symptoms. Propranolol is an anti-anxiety medication. So your doctor may be giving you the propranolol to help counter any of the anxiety side affects you may get with the vyvanse. The best thing to do is to call your doctor and to ask him/her what the drug is being prescribed for. It is always a good idea for your own benefit to know what you are taking and why.
Avatar f tn When i was about 5 or 7 years old thats when my doctor told my mom i have ADHD. My doctor gave me to take Vyvanse and Strattera. The Vyvanse i take is 60mg capsules and for Strattera i take 60mg capsules to. I had problems over the years. I get distracted very easily but i try not to look or be distracted but its hard sometimes. especially when people are talking, making noise and being annoying is distracting me. There are other stuff i turn my attention to though.
Avatar f tn I highly prefer Vyvanse over adderall because I do not suffer from side effects w/Vyvanse as with the adderall. The Vyvanse is much smoother than most all other adhd drugs. I have never experienced shortness of breath while taking Vyvanse, however, I am 25 years old and 180lbs. I am also a Registered Nurse. I would imagine that these annoying side effects will eventually subside with continued therapy w/Vyvanse. Give it 2-3 weeks becaue his tolerance needs to build up first.
Avatar n tn My question is this: Has anyone taken adhd medication such as vyvanse and is in recovery from adrugs and alcohol?
Avatar f tn // Hope these help. I am also the CL on the ADHD forum if you have any other questions.
Avatar n tn I would like to know how to ask my doctor about treating my adhd with medical marijuana. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was about 9 years old. since then I have taken Concerta, Focalin, Focalin XR, Vyvanse, and I am currently taking Adderall XR 30mg twice a day. Marijuana helps me feel calm and more interested in school work. I am not sure how to ask a new doctor about this. I would like to try taking one vyvanse in the morning and medicinal pot for the evening.
1218509 tn?1267490923 It was very smooth, it lasted around the 12-14 hours my Psychiatrist said it would, and I did not give me any side effects. I would highly recommend Vyvanse to anyone who needs a ADHD/ADD medication. I can only wish you the best experience with this medication once it is available by you.
Avatar f tn I am very healthy except for this disorder, but was seeing a doctor for medication, Strattera when I went on medicaid. Does medicaid cover Stratterra, Vyvanse or Concerta and other ADHD or ADD medications?
Avatar m tn My best friend has a son, who is nine years old, with ADHD. He takes Ritalin to control his ADHD at school. My friend told me that the doctor in charge of her son would like to change the medicine to Vyvanse. I told her that I would post this issue on this forum. Does anyone know if Vyvanse is used for children and if so how successful is it? any bad side effects such as lack of ability to fall asleep or ability to put on weight? Any sucess stories of parents with a child on this medicine.

Avatar f tn My son who is 9 years old was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 6, we have tried adderall, aderral xr, medate, medadate xr and now have gone throught all MG of daytrana patch. He is also taking .2 clonidine at night to help sleep. He also has ODD, my question is what medication can we try him on now that will MAYBE help with both? We have tried the Tenex smallest dose possiblr 1/4 pill in am. And he just could not function.
Avatar f tn i take vyvanse for adhd and xanax for panic/anxiety just fine. i don't take the xanax a lot since i started the vyvanse, it really helped with my anxiety. if your doctor prescribed them together he/she must think the combination of the two is o.k. but you need to ask your doctor. i also take lortab, soma, prozac, abilify and other meds with no problems but just make your doctor aware of all your meds. i'm on 50mg of vyvanse and don't have near the anxiety attacks i had before.
Avatar m tn Just a couple of months ago I was diagnosed ADHD, and Vyvanse was prescribed, along with clonidin. I have to really watch my blood pressure now, because if I miss taking the atenenol, my blood pressure will shoot up over 160 really quick. Is there any solution for people with 2 conditions like this where the medication for one condition diametrically opposes the medication for the second condition ? Would some other blood pressure medication work better than a beta blocker ?
Avatar f tn my grandson is 9 and 1/2 yrs old he is on vyvanse for adhd he has begun to stutter alot in the last year. when he is given the med they open the capsule and pour contents directly into his juice because he has difficulty swallowing pills. I was told this is ok to do but i have my concerns is this something that should not be done. could it be the cause of the onset of the stuttering. I am worried and do not usually give med when he is with me .
Avatar m tn My grandson which is 13 years old. He lives with me and has been on Vyvanse for about 3 years. He is beginning to have anger issues and he blames the Vyvanse. Is this possible. He has never liked taking medication for ADHD. I have him set up for counseling. He is off his medication for the summer, but when school starts I put him back on it.
Avatar n tn My son who is 9 yrs old has started Vyvanse since January of this year. He is currently on about 25 mg of Vyvanse. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it takes a long time to kick in, like about 2.5 hours for my son. So often in the morning he will seem unfocused so will not do well during early 8am test. His doctor and I discussed trying Ritalin first in the morning and then adding Vyvanse, which is the reverse of what many people do.
Avatar m tn Hi there, looking for insight on lifestyle habits to better manage bipolar and ADHD disorder. Taking 600mg of lithium and 30mg of vyvanse. Wondering what nutrition choices, sleep patterns and work loads people adopt to better manage there experences with or without the medication. Also looking for information on dealing with anxiety as a result of school stress and side effects from medication.
Avatar f tn I'm 32 years old and have struggled with both Adhd and weight problems. I went to see my doctor and he put me on phentermine 37.5mg once a day and topamax 23 mg in half doeses twice dailey. I also take adderall 20mg twice Dailey. I asked him if theses two meds who interact with one another and his response was no . I guess my question is how do I safely spread them out during the day. It seems I can't get it right because when I take either or I get very anxious .
Avatar f tn i have a 5 year old that has adhd, he is having some trouble at school with agression, and being really defeint. could he have odd plus adhd?? He is on vyvanse 40mg for his adhd the doc just gave him .1mg of clonidine to help, would that help for odd.

Avatar m tn Hello, I take Vyvanse 40mg for ADHD. Today I woke up at 12pm and took my vyvanse at 4 pm. I know it's stupid but its 2 am now and I can't go to sleep. I do have cyclobenzaprine, skelaxin, benadryl, and even alcohol if any of these can help me fall asleep. What should I do?
Avatar f tn My name is Bob, and I have had ADHD as long as I have lived. I have taken Ritalin for most of my life, but my doctor recently switched my to Vyvanse. Because I had some Ritalin left, I tried it at the same time as the Vyvanse. It worked perfectly. The problem is that the DEA are quite strict, and they don't think that is cool, apparently. Some doctors, however, are fine with writing prescriptions for two ADHD drugs; I just have to find out who they are.
573297 tn?1304709140 my pdoc asked me to get my son a referral to him. I did but of course that takes a little while. Meanwhile, my son is on Vyvanse for his ADHD but as with all the stimulants; they get him like night and day and it isn't pretty. He presently has a boxers fracture from getting in a fight with a boy and punching him in the head. The other kid had a concussion. The situation was treated like an assault because the other kid didn't even fight back. This is just the last major event....
Avatar f tn In short, adhd symptoms. There was a reason why you started Vyvanse, and as you are now stopping it...those reasons are coming back. If you have not done need to read up on Ankylosis Sponilytis. It is a condition that will slowly get worse. And I am not sure that a muscle relaxer is recommended treatment. See - . And a muscle relaxer is certainly only short term treatment.
