Can vyvanse get you high

Common Questions and Answers about Can vyvanse get you high


Avatar n tn According to the info on vyvanse, unlike other meds, you cannot snort the chemicals and get high. It must be ingested. Of course, this begs the question of where she learned to break open the capsules and snort and why. Furtheremore, if she has ADHD, the medication should not affect her the way it would someone without ADHD. So there is something weird going on here.
1549092 tn?1297049911 I think you will find the information useful as it compares Vyvanse vs Adderall XR. Do make sure you also click on their ADHD link at the top of the page once you have finished reading. The site is - You also might want to check out another very good site for adult ADD. Its has a different approach to the matter as it is all done with videos and was recently featured in a special on PBS.
Avatar f tn Along with Vyvanse, he has to take a sleep aid of Chlonodine. Dont forget when they take Vyvanse it is real important that they get a full eight to ten hours of rest. Good Luck, he has been doing very well.
Avatar f tn Not sure if the Vyvanse has anything to do with your concerns. No such thing as a dangerously high heart rate if your resting heart rate is ok and you can quickly recover. I am 66 and my max heart rate is 186. I can consistently hit 182 or more in my runs. By all charts, that is off the chart. As far as I can tell - everybody is different. My resting heart rate is around 62 and I can drop 20 beats in a minute. Of course, I'm not on meds so this may mean nada.
Avatar m tn im never going to take anything like this again, and your right when you get used to studying with help from the high you get from drugs like these it makes it much harder to get things done without them.
Avatar m tn I believe that is normal, however you might be on too high of a dose. Everyone is different. Vyvanse works wonders for some people and other people just hate it. So you might want to talk to your doctor about adjusting your dose or switching do a different medication. I learned the hard way that adjusting medications (especially for adhd) is NOT a quick process. It takes time, so just try to be patient and eventually you'll get it right.
Avatar f tn I would talk to your doc, you definitely are not the only person who has experienced dissatisfaction with Vyvanse. Good luck!
Avatar f tn If he was in special ed or had a 504 in high school, that will be helpful. If not, the first thing you want to do when he gets back in college (or a JC) is to get a 504 as that will help him. It may be that the combination of college classes, sports, and college life was just a bit overwhelming for him. He may have to slow things down a bit. One thing for sure is that he needs to recognize that he has ADD and use that knowledge to help him work with it.
Avatar f tn You have to wean yourself off Vyvanse? Ive been on adderall in high doses for months at a time and quit it a few times cold turkey and my doctor didn't say anything about needing to ween, withdrawal was just basically sleeping for 3 days straight which can actually be pleasant if you don't have anything to do. I didn't go crazy without it or have cravings for it. It sounds to me like her son is having psychotic reactions to it and would be best to stop immediately. I'm no doctor tho.
Avatar m tn I got on Vyvanse last year and I had high blood pressure again. I stopped taking it for a while, but I was still having high blood pressure so my Dr. put me on Lisinopril 10 mg & HCTZ 25 mg. My BP has still been high on this, even off Vyvanse (I am taking it again now since I am back in school). I told my Dr. about my anxiety bc I get really stressed about little stuff and almost feel like I am going to have a breakdown. I used to be on Prozac, but didn't think it did anything.
Avatar f tn I think that getting him evaluated by a psychiatrist is a great idea. Hopefully, the earlier doctor gave you information on how to help him besides just the meds. All in all, information on how to work with a child with ADHD is as important or more so then the meds. Just in case you didn't get much info - I recommend you buy the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. It will help a lot.
Avatar m tn He is not addicted. It doesn't work that way. I would say that these are signs for someone who needs his medication adjusted. It certainly does sound like an overdose. If he did not have ADHD, that much stimulants would wire him higher than a kite. Since he has gone the opposite way, I think the dosage is too high. This is something that his doctor needs to know about. I also think that there is a serious communication problem going on and I blame that on the doctor.
Avatar f tn Thats great. The more information you have - the better you can deal with it. You might also be interested in these two adult web sites for add. The sites are and Both have a ton of content. Thanks for your information. Keep in touch!
Avatar f tn My 20 year old son recently gradually weaned off 60 mg/day Vyvanse so that he can join the Marines (must be off for 1 year - military rules). He is having a very rough time. Extreme fatigue, totally unmotivated, extreme focus issues. He says he feels like a totally different person off totally off the med. Appetite is high too but he knows how to control that. My question is are these symptoms temporary - does it take a while for his body to adjust to being off the med?
Avatar f tn So, the sooner you can take it in the morning, the better. And ya, going to bed that late at night is not good. If you can still get 7 or 8 good hours of sleep, then you should be ok. But less sleep then that will cause anxiety and other problems. You might try buying Yogi "Bedtime" Tea and start sipping on that an hour or so before bedtime. It will help you relax and sleep better at night. It should be carried in major grocery stores.
Avatar m tn I have struggled throughout middle school, high school and now college because I am unable to focus, and comprehend what my professors are trying to teach. I will sit in class and tell myself I need to focus, but 30 seconds later I will start thinking about random things that have nothing to do with the class. Once I leave my classes I always say to myself, I have no idea what we just went over. I have difficulty paying attention to details and tendency to make careless mistakes in school.
1666464 tn?1303228958 I don't know it's really weird but here's how it usually works when I try to go on some sort of ADD/ADHD medication. Also mind you that I've only been prescribed Adderall and Vyvanse so I can only reference the symptoms that I receive from these. Usually when I start taking the medication everything's fine. It works out well and about 2 weeks from when I began the medication I begin to start noticing side-effects.
Avatar f tn Are you under a Drs care so you don't take too much Wellbutrin? I mean, you know the correct dosage? Wellbutrin can cause heart problems and/or seizures at too high of a dose.
Avatar f tn one that is trained to get down to his level....can really really help. Also I am sure you are very informed regarding ADHD...but here is a website with a lot of great information... It goes very indepth regarding symptoms and also has links to a discussion of disorders that can show up comorbidly with ADHD. I don't want to think that you so has a defiance disorder or conduct disorder and I doubt he does. But its good info.
Avatar f tn At noon, after taking forever to get up and eat breakfast, I took the Vyvanse again. I could be exaggerating, but I felt, almost immediately, the surge of energy come back again. My eyes (especially my left) were left dilated. I was very childishly irritable with my father, and became hyperactive. It lasted for a while, and, just as quickly as it started, disappeared. While I was writing all of this, things got worse.
Avatar f tn - 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...
990354 tn?1307136486 Also get a good nights sleep. Its better to study less the night before the test so you can get the sleep, then pull an all nighter. All meds have a time of duration. He is taking the Adderall in the afternoon because the V was no longer working. But, you can't add an Adderall at the same time and expect a longer duration. Basically V should last 10 or so hours. If it does not, you need to increase the dose or do the boost.
Avatar m tn I take 50 mg vyvanse daily without the adverse effects, however my gf was just taken off of vyvanse because the stimulant can cause emotional instability in some people.
Avatar m tn You really should have told the doctor in the ER what you took. When you withhold vital info in a medical setting, you're basically handicapping the doctors. They wouldn't be looking for certain things that may be pertinent with the possible OD. I think your best bet, for peace of mind anyway, would be to return to the ER, and be honest about what you took, so they can do the appropriate work-up. Same with a cardiologist...
Avatar f tn drink a lot of water and get all the sleep you can get . also try to eat so you can go to the bathroom. for some reason, having a good number 2 after you come off of that stuff makes you feel a thousand times better . your welcome.
Avatar m tn If the high blood pressure just started, it could be a side effect of the Vyvanse. Even if you had high blood pressure before starting on the Vyvanse, the Vyvanse can make it worse. Try taking your blood pressure a few times on the Vyvanse and off the Vyvanse, at similar times of day and under similar circumstances. Depending on the results, you may need to talk to the doctor that is prescribing the Vyvanse to see if there is something else that can help your ADHD.
5757880 tn?1395581622 ) When Zane does his work at school, he rushes through it and will get F’s… but when he brings his work home, he knows all the answers and will do it with answering everything correct. We have a meeting set with a specialist in January 2014 (the earliest we can get in) to have him evaluated for any other disorders and until then we have been working with the wraparound group and the school. Okay, to my question – Can I get a 504 or IEP if they think it is only behavioral?
Avatar m tn It can really screw up your day if you don't get enough sleep. So that is something that you need to get under control before you start switching doses. Vyvanse should work 10 to 12 to 14 hours. Its possible that it is causing you sleep problems. One sign of overdosing is a medication lasting longer then it should. And you are showing a few other symptoms of an overdose. It is possible that you actually need to lower your dose of Vyvanse. Did you start out at 40?
14987738 tn?1437745635 And, I doubt that you are feeling more depressed because of the Vyvanse. You are feeling depressed because of you stopped the zoloft and because of your medical condition. Depression and anxiety are a very common co-disorders of ADHD and while V can help with some of the reasons for the depression. It doesn't happen overnight. Eating is very important. And while the V might be killing your appetite, it is not causing the stomach pain. You need medical attention for that.
