Common Questions and Answers about How long is vyvanse in your system


Avatar f tn My son is 10 yrs old & has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 6. He has been on Focalin, Adderall, Ritalin, Metadate & currently is taking Vyvanse. He takes 70 mg in am with 10 mg of Prozac & @ 3pm he takes 20 mg of Ritalin mainly so he can focus & concentrate on his homework because the Vyvanse wears off about that time. Then, about an hour before bedtime he takes 0.1 of Clonopine to help him sleep. If he doesn't take it then he is up all night.
Avatar m tn I'm not a doctor. But all of these types of meds do leave your system fairly quickly (which is why you have to take it every day). So I think you will be ok. However, I hope you have learned a very important lesson. That is a huge dose for someone your size - so it was dangerous. Furthermore, those meds can be addicting. And finally - I know from personal experience that ultimately it hurts your study habits/grades much more than it helps. The best method is good study habits.
Avatar f tn My son is about to be put on vyvanse on his 6th birthday which is in May.
Avatar f tn When I increased to 10, he was a zombie. Chris how is your son's diet and weight on the Focalin? I have taken my son off of the Vyvanse after two days of hell. I already posted my concern yesterday. Then after posting - later yesterday, my son said he saw someone named Johnny stabbing himself with a pencil. I will never give him Vyvanse again. I am keeping him on the Focalin 7 mg. This has been a very scary experience for two days. I cannot bear to watch my child go through.
Avatar m tn ). Anyway, it is out of your system overnight. Something else is probably going on but not due to the V. Are you on any other meds - particularly things for allergies?
Avatar f tn That way he knows exactly how much is in your system and anything else and holds you accountable. Most importantly you took a huge step by getting what was in your head out and talking about it! That is the most important thing in recovery!!! Do not keep things in your head and feed on it and let it eventually talk u into just taking one or a little as we know one is too many and a thousand never enough . I am considering switching to vyvanse or something similar.
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 Its really important to start sipping some kind of sports drink to get electrolytes in your system. I have never had any posters talk about taking that much all at once, so don't know much more. Here is information on an overdose. Overdosage Consult with a Certified Poison Control Center for up-to-date guidance and advice for treatment of overdosage. Individual patient response to amphetamines varies widely. Toxic symptoms may occur idiosyncratically at low doses.
447130 tn?1225474466 The problem I have with Adderall is over the years I have built up a high tolerance, to the point where I would need to take 40mg XR in the mornings AND anywhere from 10 to 30mg of additional redular adderall (depending per day) My doc wanted me to try Vyvance, because it is supposed to stay in your system for 12 hours. Today is just my 4th day but I am feeling the same way!! I am very anti-social, to the point of all I have been doing is sitting on my bed and staring at my computer.
1666464 tn?1303228958 Most of this stuff is supposed to be out of your blood stream in a fairly quick amount of time. Sure Vyvanse is 'extended release', or at least it takes longer to fully metabolize but it should be completely out of my system within 24 hours. I too wonder if there's something else at play here but I can't figure it out or whether that's even true. I never thought that Pepto-Bismul might be coating my stomach and blocking Vyvanse from even entering into my blood stream.
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 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. Now, he has "episodes" of feeling this way about twice a day, usually in the middle of the day, and then again at night right before he goes to sleep.
Avatar f tn When I was in high school I always heard kids talk about lacing a joint with meth, this was like 8 yrs ago but I'm sure ppl still do that, idk how long meth would stay in your system, anyway good luck, I hope you get everything resolved
865817 tn?1255285681 I mean you can't expect a child to not have all this energy, and be hyper it's just how every child is. Imagine how your child feels with you giving them all this medicine to make them better, it makes a child think they are not good enough, and that you don't think they are either. I'm just trying to get the message out that giving your child medication that is basically speed isn't worth it in the end. It messes with a child, like how their feelings and thoughts are.
Avatar f tn Also, the last 5 days i have had unbearable back pain so i bought some 10mg norco which i have taken twice now with adderrall and xanax in my system but i try and space it out as long as i can stand, usually 2-3 hours. as much as i feel this is helping me i know it is dangerous and i do allot of research and get mixed results. i would love to know the risks i am taking when using just the adderral and xanax and when all 3 are in my system.
118225 tn?1278658540 I would try and become well-versed on what the route is in your area. And, yes, there are very good tests now that would pinpoint processing delays or other learning delays/difficulties. The ped is the way to go first and if your ped thinks there are concerns too, you can bring this to the school (gives more weight to your concerns).
Avatar n tn I agree with you - it should be out of your system by then. How does coffee affect you? Your Doctor is right in that untreated ADD or whatever can cause problems. My question is how did you get the Adderall. Did you go through a psychologist who diagnosed your problem - or just kinda take the easy way out.
Avatar f tn Meth addicts who smoke adulterated meth using burnt crackpipes get messed up teeth but a regular person with ADD who taked adderal or vyvanse or dex whatever is a ok as long as they just practice simple oral hygiene. They sell some stuff what is it Fixodent, and some strong mouthwashes and teeth whiteners that might help. Diet is the most important aspect here. Smoker? Hell on teeth after time. Try incorporating Kefir into your daily diet, 12 oz.
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.
Avatar n tn according to my doctor my growth hormone is low, but he felt like it would come up when the rest of my endocrine system was more in balance, so growth hormone is not something I am taking. I hear it is pretty expensive, even with insurance, if they will cover it. Sure wish this was easier to figure out........
702513 tn?1228516297 Since your husband is really struggling, this may be worth a try. Lastly, have your husband tested for diabetes, insulin resistance, vitamin b-12 deficiency, cortisol deficiency. These are not always given to apnea patients because everyone automatically assumes the fatigue is from the apnea. I still have terrible, debilitating fatigue and we don't know why. My doc gave me Vyvanse (similar to adderall) to stay awake. Even at the max FDA approved dosage, I was still falling asleep.
Avatar f tn It doesn't work as well, but it does work. The other thought is not to take extended release meds (XR) so they are out of your system at night. Vyv has probably the longest duration of them all, which is great for some people. Ritalin has a duration of roughly 4 hours which I think is the shortest. Some people even take meds to help them sleep at night (which I think should be avoided if possible).
Avatar f tn And we come in to tell what has happen to our Child and what you might try to do to help your Child. I know how hard it is ,and still know how hard it is for everyone .But I will never put any of my Children on these drugs after what has happen to my youngest son after being on these drugs.
Avatar n tn Lloyd Wrong's "heart is in the right place" only if you think a wallet is a good place to store your heart. Since he has studied HCV so intensely you would think that his misinformation would have to be deliberate.
Avatar m tn One more quick question (mainly because I spent 37+ years in education). You said your 8th period. How long are your periods? Do you combine two of them for specific classes? Sounds like a system that gives more options - or is it just a really, really, long school day?
747988 tn?1396540478 I have a second property (my parents house (my mom is gone but dad is in a nursing home now)) and there was a major fire there - no one was injured... but it is just another thing to take lots of energy. Insurance will cover everything, not rebuilding, so will have a bit of funny money FOR LIFE now. I have to make a new post - along the title of "Going Into the Lions Den" or something like that - very soon... so look forward to that. Something very exciting, maybe. take care all.
Avatar f tn Cannot overstate how valuable your injunction to be aggressive for yourself is. It is inspirational to connect with people on here who are bravely doing it and being generous with what they have gleaned on their journeys. I would love to get good info on LDN and will be talking to my GP when I see her next week about getting a prescription. I When I did not get any better after finishing the treatment I thought I must have something awful wrong with me and got a battery of tests...

Avatar f tn Any chance you can talk with your Doc - sounds like he knows what he is doing - and maybe then bring your husband in for some information on how to best work with her?
461596 tn?1324870632 One thing I stress to my loved ones, is when I am acting like a pain in the rear it is not on purpose. Bipolars really can not help it, I am serious. We have no excuse to be abusive, but not being able to control certain emotions is part of the illness. That is how I lost my fiance, he could not get that concept through his head. My family and close friends are sticking by me and I feel so very fortunate.
