Common Questions and Answers about How long do vyvanse side effects last


Avatar f tn i have been taking aderall time release for 3 to 4 yrs. and had severe side effects so i switched to vyvanse. IT NOT WORK RIGHT AWAY but it takes about 3 to 4 months to fully work but once it does it was 100% better for me then adderall. BUT i noticed i stutter A LOT but don;t know y? its so hard for me to talk without messing up what i am saying or i just mumble out sound. its hard for me to listen and understand what people say to me because i hear a totaly different thing from what they said.
Avatar f tn If you feel any negative side effects from Vyvance just stop taking it, and do more research on the drug. Be safe everyone !
Avatar m tn Idk if any of this is weird or un-natural but that's just my experience, and it seems odd that I am doing just fine with these 250mg doses and all the other complaints that I've seen on the Internet were only using up to like 80mg and they experienced the side effects in a lil bit stronger sense. My side effects seem to have been only a minor version of itself and not the whole side effect... And if I may add.
Avatar f tn My son has been on vyvanse for 4 months now, he is having horrible side effects, to the point where you can't reason with him. We need to get him off this terrible drug before it kills him. You can't just stop taking it because, so how do we get him off this drug?
Avatar f tn My medication completely kills my appetite. I need help, how can I get my appetite back? I Am underweight, food makes me nauseous, and I naturally have a fast metabolism. I am about 5' 3' tall.
1575110 tn?1334668235 Soo I did I don't like it makes me feel depressed n think to much about life. y this likethat N that like this. Kind of deal. Vyvanse don't last has long has concerta.
Avatar f tn This is called Off Label Prescribing. Does anyone here take over 70mg of Vyvanse? If so, how long does it last? I actually called Shire this past weekend and made a product complaint. I told the rep that my meds were wearing off after 4-5 hours & asked if it was possible to get my doctor to write for more than 70mg. She said that the doctor can do anything he wants, he can prescribe as much as he feels the patient needs.
Avatar f tn dextroamphetamines (including Vyvanse, which is low intensity but has been engineered to last a long time--say, a peak intensity lasting 6 to 10 hours), adderall (which is mix, I think, of a slight variations of some kind of amphetamine), and then of course really intense stuff like methamphetines (which I know very little about, but which has ruined a lot of people's lives--think of it as kind of like crack cocaine, the most addictive and destructive form of coke).
Avatar f tn and they are going to do something about this. it's the same med, vyvanse. I would do the same, ASAP! this is a controlled substance and this is a criminal action. on the pills that had holes on one end, to me it looked like a a neddle was used to poke a hole and drain contents out. This is the first time I got a bottle that looked this.
Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
1666464 tn?1303228958 After I've done all of that, and after I'm about to just lay down and try and try ride it out I take a small swig of 'Pepto-Bismul' and for some reason it seems to neutralize the Vyvanse. The side-effects go away but so does the psychological stimulating feelings of Vyvanse. It's as if it snuffs it out almost completely. I don't know if it's a drug interaction that nobody knows about or if it thins my blood out so that I don't notice any of the effects of Vyvanse, I don't know.
Avatar f tn Vyvanse has essentially the same side effects as Focalin. I am an adult taking Vyvanse and have had experience with all other ADHD meds. Vyvanse, though stronger than some meds, seems to step up to the plate where all the others fall short in some way. Focalin/Concerta/Ritalin all helped calmed me down, however did not help with focus and concentration as much.
447130 tn?1225474466 I've been taking his 40mg vyvanse here and there and it made me feel fantastic. Then last week I took one and I felt like how all of you were explaining. I shrugged it off and just thought it was a bad weekend. Well today I was prescribed vyvanse. I've taken my first 50mg and I don't think i'm going to take the rest. I know I should try and see this out and take the prescription, I highly doubt I am going to. Aderol seems like it is the correct drug for ADD if given in the right quantities.
1447814 tn?1284739057 for the last 3 months who now says he is ADHD and the want to put him on Vyvanse. I just want to hear what anyone has to say about it and if they have a child with ADHD or similar behaviors please share. I have not started the meds but suppose to start tomorrow. The behavior at school has to stop he is getting behavioral forms sent home everyday. I dont know what else to do!
Avatar n tn i am sorry that there are those that suffer from post-interferon side effects, and i hope i do not become one of them. but what choice do i have with cirrhosis, portal hypertension and varices?
Avatar f tn ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~Are all of these typical, mild side-effects, or did I mention any of the more serious ones that need to be treated as such? ~If I do continue to take this drug, will the side-effects gradually get better or only become worse and worse? ~Are there any permanent side-effects from taking this drug? ~What are the very-real, compromising, and life-threatening risks of taking this drug besides addiction?
Avatar f tn One way to tell how well a med is working is how long it lasts. If it doesn't last long enough - dose is low. If it lasts too long - dose is high. Concerta should last for about 8 hours. Was he having his speech problems all day long or only more so in the afternoon? What made you decide to lower his dose? I had assumed that these problem happened before you lowered the dose?
Avatar f tn I had side effects with adderall in the beginning but they were not as intense and long term as vyvanse. Right now I don't have any side effects except if I get less than 7 hrs of sleep then I do get tired even on the adderall xr. The side effects went away about a month after I started on the 25mg. I'm going to see a psychiatrist soon and have been trying to decide which one to go with now that I can afford it.
Avatar n tn According to my new and now old psychiatrist they do not know the long term effects of altering YOUR body's way of naturally producing its neurotransmitters. Who's to say that the imbalance is a result of your brain trying to balance or being effected by something else in your body that currently needs more attention. There are cases when prescriptions are appropriate, sometimes the only way, I get & support that. Please take them.
Avatar n tn I'm up to 10 to 15 a day now and take five just to get me moving in the morning. This is no way to live. How long and how hard are the with drawals from it? I don't want to live my life around this drug anymore. Just a word of encouragment some times is what I think I need and to know that I am not alone.
Avatar f tn I think he was beginning to notice some of the side effects and put two and two together. Anyway, without telling me, he quit the Vyvanse cold turkey 15 days ago. He is still going thru withdrawal. Please, can someone help me? How long will this last? After he first quit taking it, he was angry, suicidal, tired, and was having flu-like symptoms every day.
Avatar m tn I have been detoxing without other meds. I do not have an addiction towards the vyvanse. I only used it because I was simpleminded and ignorant about the health effects. It's definitely an eye opener for me.
865817 tn?1255285681 The elementary years are where kids learn all of the basic skills they will need later on in school and in life. How well do you think that child would do in the 6th grade if they were reading at a 2nd grade level and didn't know their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, much less formulas and writing methods and scientific method?
990354 tn?1307136486 it is not safe for your sister to take the adderall ,as others have said addreall is just like speed and it has very bad side effects. if you look up the side effects for adderall you will see what can happen to your sister and her husband .it doesn't give you all of the side effects but does give you some of them.also tell your sister to look up if anyone has every died from taken adderall.don't mean to scare you.
Avatar f tn I know I need to wean the medication slowly but don't know whether I should take 500 mg daily and skip a day and then take it again the next or what is best to do or how long to do it. Could anyone give me any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
522415 tn?1242941355 i have stopped searching because i've tried it all, and nothing works, plain and simple. i really dont know how people can live like this, or for how long. the only relief i get is an occasional prescription of prednisone, 5 days worth...10 days of relief. 40 mgs a day i gave up looking for its just finding ways to learn to live with it..yippee. good luck..
Avatar n tn For some reason I have been able to take less of my narcotics recently---every so often, I seem to have less pain for some reason and will be able to take less medication for a little while---how do the pain killers affect hormones? Both my endo and my most recent doc tested growth hormone with a blood test----I have never heard of a stimulation test for it---what is it called?
Avatar f tn I started out with an SSRI antidepressant which I took for three months then switched to Wellbutrin due to the undesirable side effects. The withdrawal period and adjusment period were hell. I'm currently on 450 Wellbutrin and have been for the last 6 months - Developed a severe allergic reaction - I'm not allergic to anything - and got anaphylaxis. I now have to carry an epi pen. - Due to the anaphylaxis, I got tested for every allergy under the sun and came back positive for only dust mites.
Avatar n tn t been diagnosed with anything other than asthma and allergies but this year I have had to go pick him up at least ten times and he was suspended for up to a week at a time because of behavior such as throwing desk hitting other students teachers throwing fits and flat refusing to do his school work he knows how to do the work just flat doesn't want to do it the school moved him from his normal class to the special ed class now the behavior is worse and they are talking about putting hi
Avatar m tn It may be habit-forming if used for a long period of time. Use Vyvanse only as prescribed. Do not share it with others. Abuse of Vyvanse may cause serious heart problems, blood vessel problems, or sudden death.
