Vyvanse and anger

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and anger


Avatar f tn He was on the the Daytrona patch but it was burning his back and he was able to take it off. The doctor switched him to Vyvanse and he started taking it four days ago. The last four days have been extremely difficult for us and him. He doesn't understand the moods and he is very upset. He can not focus or sit still. He was doing so well with finally talking and socializing and now he can not even think straight.
Avatar m tn 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 f tn My 13 yr old son recently (20 days ago) started taking vyvanse 30 mg for ADD and Prozac 30mg for anxiety over learning disability in math. We have tried Adderal and Strattera but with little effect. These first weeks of school have been much much better than we could have hoped for. He gets up on his own, wants to get to school early, remembers what his homework assignments are, and is eager to get his homework finished.
1447814 tn?1284739057 We started him ok Tenex at 3 1/2 and it did wonders, but since he started Kindergarten it's gotten so much worse so he was recently put on risperidone for aggression at night and 1/2 tenex and Vyvanse in the morning. Like I said, it's a hard decision to make, but I know my child is a wonderful caring boy, and it breaks my heart to know that he thinks he's "bad" and no one likes him because he can't control himself. If medication can help, then I say do it.
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?
Avatar n tn I have an eight year old son, Trace, he is currently on ADHD and Anti-Depressant meds (Vyvanse& Lexapro). My problem and concern is this, he has an anger management problem. It is a constant problem at home and at school. I have concerns for his safety and other children's safety. He sees a psychologist and a therapist on a regular basis however; we still have not come to a workable solution.
Avatar f tn I have been on the the ADHD forum for over 3 years and have seen very few cases of meds causing the anger. The anger was usually there before the meds started. In, "The ADD/ ADhD Answer book." , by Susan Ashley - she says that, "They negotiate, argue, and throw tantrums to get what they want and have stamina that wears most parents out." Essentially, anger is quite common. Couple of things.
Avatar f tn My 17 year old takes Vyvanse for ADHD and help with anger , he takes that in the morning then at night Clonidine. At night I accidentally gave him Vyvanse and his clonidine because I thought I didn’t give him his meds ( clonidine) but later I checked the morning meds and there was one missing which means I gave him both! Me n him were confused and didn’t realize until the end. Will this hurt him ? Should I be concerned.
Avatar f tn he used to come to me and we talked and he loved me. But now he is full of anger he has no respect for authority, he is not having problems at school but I worry that will come if we don't get control of the issues. He is now on a trial prescription of 10mg Focalin XR but that has turned into a fight cause he doesn't want to take it anymore...although he says it does help him at school, he disobeys me, disrespects me, hits his sister, hates everyone.
Avatar f tn My son is six and generally pretty easy going, he does have ADHD and takes vyvanse for it. He is pretty shy at school and tends to be extremely literal. He can be somewhat rigid about when you say certain things are going to happen. Ut the biggest problem I have is that he will have very loud angry outbursts and usually there is a perceived event to cause the outburst but not always. He screeches at the top of his lungs, hits me, kicks me and throws things.
562055 tn?1216906598 He doesn't lash out at people (he has 2 little sisters ages 5 and 3) but he pulls his hair and bangs his fists on the doors and walls and kicks his legs ~ it's like this anger sets in and just HAS to get out of him somehow . . . . when it is all over and he is calm he cries and says he is sorry and that he doesn't know why he gets like that ....and "why can't i just be normal, Mom?" . . . . . he breaks my heart.
Avatar m tn He has been diagnosed with ADHD (sometime about 3/4 of a way through 1st grade) and after trying many different meds he is currently taking Vyvanse 30 mg once a day and has been taking it for a while. He is in 3rd grade and making good grades. He was adopted at 19 months old. His bio mother did drugs while she was pregnant with him and pretty much abandoned him immediately after she had him by leaving him with his 8 year old sister for long periods of time with no food.
Avatar f tn Prozac and Paxil , block the metabolism, the breakdown, the effective use of amphetamine products like Vyvanse, Adderall, and Dexedrine. If you don’t know that simple fact you can either: remain irritable and nasty for years give up ADHD or depression treatment altogether add more inappropriate meds on top find yourself “diagnosed” with bipolar illness become even more depressed There are "clean" anti-depressants that do not block the liver pathways.
Avatar m tn Prozac or Paxil will block the 2D6 pipes and the “amphetamines accumulate, with resultant anger, rage, mind racing, sleep deprivation and subsequent lack of control.” It will take a bit of time for the stim meds to accumulate - so if you just recently started the adderall be really watchful for this. I would talk to your doc and get off the Praxil. You could switch over to what Dr. Parker calls “clean 2D6 antidepressants” like Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, or Effexor, if you need to.
Avatar f tn Right now taking lithium, vyvanse, buproprion(sp?) clonazepam, tenex (for tics) , his tics seem to be getting worse again and his anger is just out of control. We have tried so many adhd meds (dr.s said vyvanse was the last one they could offer to him) cuz he just can't stop he goes and goes and goes, tried a few different meds for his mood, and some depression meds.
Avatar n tn Finally after terrible problems at school, (failing, total disrespect for any authority, and severe anger management tantrums at home) I got him on vyvanse. It immediately helped with his grades, but now after a year and on 50mg, behaviors are starting more frequent again. He also has teachers this semester that have no patience for him. My next psychiastrist appt isn't until next month.
Avatar n tn com and The Vyvanse says it can effect it. Also his Depakote may need a tweek. The anger issue may just be a break thru of the manic. Talk with his Pdoc about it. Quote from Drugs.com: "Before using Vyvanse, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have - a personal or family history of mental illness, psychotic disorder, bipolar illness, depression, or suicide attempt" There are other things listed but that one stood out to me.
1920054 tn?1431634191 Her, counselor, dr, her sisters and i all try to help her deal with her anger, it is definitely not easy. She is so loveable and sweet st times, and she knows when she does wrong. Se tells me sometimes, "i didnt mean it mmy, i just can't help it sometimes.
Avatar f tn This all started with the Vyvanse. And of course the eating problems. Its so hard to remember to eat, and then when you do remember your already full with just a bite or two. Im starting to think I have a eating disorder because of how little I eat, or the only time I do really eat it after 10 pm when the meds start to wear off and I start to crave things... also found that ive been sleep eating..
Avatar f tn Dextrosmphetamine 10mg, Vyvanse 70mg, and Zoloft 50mg in the AM and then Abilify 5mg at night. He is a very quiet child and I worry with taking all these meds he's anger issues will get worse. The doctor says he has both long term and short term memory loss and anxiety. I don't believe either. He can recall things both old and new just fine.
Avatar f tn I also share that I take Vyvanse prescribed by my family dr. Well, the cardiologist actually exhibited anger towards me. My pb spikes in a doctor's office. He angrily snapped at me and said will check with my family dr about the Vyvanse - insinuating it was prescribed maybe? He had known all along and in my chart that I take Vyvanse. I just feel like this doctor was mad at me and angry - instead of helping me. For the life of me I can't understand why except that I forgot my bp data sheet.
Avatar f tn i take prozac, abilify, xanax, and vyvanse (for adhd). just keep trying and pray if you believe in god, it helps me and couldn't hurt anyway.
Avatar n tn I have recently caught my 6 year old son urinating in a drawer, in his bedroom vent and in hiding places. I simply took him to the side, with no anger, and asked him why he was doing this, as he has been potty trained for a year now, and he gave me a straight forward answer. "I thought I heard a monster in the bathroom and I was scared to go in there.
Avatar n tn (like heroin metabolized into morphine) Buprenorphine itself is a partial agonist at the mu opiate receptor, and a full agonist at the delta and nociceptors, and competitve antagonist at the kappa receptor. Buprenorhpine's metabolizes into norbuprenorphine, which is a full opiate agonist at the mu, delta. noci, and partial agonist at the kappa. So basically they are computing at all your opioid receptors, except the mu.
Avatar f tn if medication seems to be the way you want to go for now, that's fine, but the minute you brought up his anger issues, a red flag went up for me. any sort of change in his behavior that involves anger is the vyvanse, and I reccommend you talk to your doctor immediately. As for the touching of the face and the swallowing (that one made me laugh because I did that) it can be related to tics, or a form of muscular turrets, but it could also be an issue with OCD.
Avatar n tn i have been suffering from debilatating allergies/sinus probs, fatigue, and dizziness for about a year now. i do have allergies to mold, dust, milk products, and corn products. my allergy doc says my symptoms are all from allergies, but i have been trying everything 2 avoid the allergens, been getting allergy shots, tried numerous allergy medications, with no help from anything! does anyone else experience this type of thing? i seriously feel like i am getting so depressed.
Avatar n tn However, we are noticing increasingly worse behavior right away in the mornings and at bedtime. We just saw our family physician and we increased his dose of Vyvanse, started on a low dose of Ritalin to get us through the morning bus ride, and we are going to start seeing a psycologist for behavior modification. The doctor drew some lab work while we were in, and the results were normal except his BG.
Avatar f tn He is disrespectful at times and has sudden bursts of anger at times. My question is can a child become immune to a medication and how else can I handle his hyperactivity?
Avatar f tn you may have to establish a family doc to get a referral but talk to your insurance people. anxiety and adhd can cause irritability and anger outbursts so you need to see a shrink.
