Vyvanse and blood sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and blood sugar


Avatar f tn I also take Vyvanse and have noticed that I pretty much forget to eat and have no appetite, If I don't make myself eat I have a huge crash feeling and get kind of down, low blood sugar kinda feeling,and get headaches but If I eat and drink water I feel great. Also, the insomnia side effect only lasted a couple of months with him and I. We both sleep great now. I have also done research that citrus makes the med. ineffective so you can't drink O.J. and take it or it will not work.
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 I would venture to guess that the weed/Vyvanse combo set something off. I've smoked my fair share in the past and absolutely cannot on Vyvanse or similar drugs. My brother in-law had a similar experience when he was about 16/17. He mixed many drugs and his brain sort of snapped. He has a family history of bi-polar. Some people have a genetic disposition for disorders and they lay dormant until something activates it, like a weed/meth combo. I know you are scared.
Avatar n tn Hypoglycemia can occur after a very carbohydrate-rich meal or high sugar snacks due to the spiking increase of sugar in the blood and then a sudden decrease. To help prevent hypoglycemia is to minimize the length of time between meals (5-6 small meals a day), eat an even ratio of protein to carbohydrate foods which will help to avoid high sugar increases in the blood, and eat a variety of health foods.
Avatar n tn over the course of two years and months before there was overlap. I received my test results (blood and urine). HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec 3.59 High HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec 1.02 High (equivocal) HBsAg, Hep C, RPR, HIV 1/0/2 Abs-ICMA, Index, Qual, Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae all were NEGATIVE - I have the entire LabCorp PDF lab, but didn't want to fill the entire thing in the inbox. THE HSV2, equivocal concerns me.
Avatar f tn It's almost impossible to control yeast infections and clear acne when consuming moderate to large amounts of sugar. You can support and balance your blood sugar levels with the mineral Chromium picolinate. This mineral is also used for weight control, acne, diabetes and cholesterol. Once you balance your hormones, clear the yeast infection and normalize your blood sugar you will do well.
Avatar m tn However I am concerned because I am taking a benzodiazepine an opiate and an SSRI. Should I be? In your opinion. I went for an ECG blood tests , blood sugar tests,liver and kidney tests and a long x-ray and everything is fine I have no history of heart conditions but something about amphetamine scare me. Or is this just because of the bad press I'm just interested in your opinions. Also do any of you know a give who takes dosages this high?
Avatar n tn i used to sew and can and garden and cook and crochet---and i loved mowing the lawn. now i hardly do much of anything but sit in my rocking chair with long johns under my pants to keep my legs from being cold and i usually wear a sweater and quite often have a heating pad behind my neck. my oldest daughter at home--on a college break does most of the cooking--but i still vaccum! i feel so useless and lazy. there has got to be a way to feel better than this.
Avatar n tn 96. I went and had more blood work done monday and still have not received a call from my doctor. I am just nervous and feel bad. I was just talking with guys at work and they never heard of men having thyroid problems, and then I check on line and it is rare. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any men who have thyroid problems? And if my 16.96 TSH is something to be concerned about. THANKS!
Avatar n tn But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes. Any comments for the older group will be greatly appreciated.
253566 tn?1219683299 I developed joint and muscle pain, periods of extreme fatigue, skin reactions, sun sensitivity, my blood pressure became above normal for the first time in my life, I have developed metabolic syndrome, high blood sugar (as in pre-diabetes), erectile dysfunction, recurring welt-like mouth and cheek sores, lots of gum loss, and bone thinning! I struggle with energy and motivation issues, and I often feel like my lungs burn when I workout or do aerobic exercise.
Avatar n tn that is why many/most do better without sugar, gluten and have food allergies. Avoid sugar and yeast products and even try anti-fungals, see if you get better. Most are able to handle food they were previously allergic to after removing/treating the Candida.
Avatar f tn But because I'm not able to absorb nutrients, I have to keep a close eye on my iron and blood sugar. I was have had a total hysterictomy because of heavy clotting, My blood sugar will drop unexpectedly to below 40, then it takes approximately 2 days to recuperate.
Avatar f tn About a month ago I started taking my vyvanse again, and have noticed a decrease in those urges and how bad they are. I still get that feeling sometimes, but it's not as overwhelming and I don't typically fall asleep. Once this semester is over, I want to take a break from my ADD medicine again, but I'm concerned about those sleeping urges.
Avatar m tn Apart from then you need to be tested for thyroid problems, anemia, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, sleep disorders and adrenal gland problems. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn and i have great blood pressure, and the last time this happened my mom checked my blood sugar and it was fine. my moms making an appointment with her gyno (which im terrified of, never been to one before...) but i wanted some piece of mind. thank you for your help!
1396846 tn?1332463110 Hopefully this will pass soon so that I can to feeling better. PCP called today, she did some bloodwork the last time I was there and said that my blood sugar came back high so I have to go in for a 2 hour glucose test :( geez will it ever stop!
Avatar m tn Sure, the anxiety may never go away completely - it's like being a diabetic, who always has to monitor blood sugar and take meds - but at least I don't have to be afraid of myself My abuse was chronic, daily emotional abuse - my parents never touched me unless they had to, for feeding or changing clothes or when I was sick. Also, my mother was a scary drunk.
Avatar m tn Went to the ER once and when the ambulance showed up my blood pressure was 200/110 and heart rate was 180. Anywho, during my panic time frame I was prescribe numerous benzodiazepines (Lorazepam, Diazepam, Temazepam and Alprazolam). Now, despite being in a constant state of panic I sparingly used the benzos (2-3 times a week at prescribed dose, usually only ever used Alprazolam). Finally I was started on Paroxetine, Gabapentin and Atenolol.
Avatar m tn Well, you do need to find out what kind of polycythemia you have. If it is genetic or due to sleep apnea etc. There are rare types that are due to leukemia or malignancy. Have others in your family had it? If it Is genetic it is usually benign. Also,, if they can find the cause such as sleep apnea or other cause that would explain it other than genetic flaw in the bone marrow then it would be good. Are they having you get regular blood "letting" or blood draws to remove blood?
Avatar f tn Ryannn94, First of all, I am very sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time; not only medically but with your friends, school, and stresses of everything else. I can surely sympathize with you and remember the confusion, frustration, and anger of emotions I felt trying to sort through everything. PLEASE HANG IN THERE!!!! First, some kinda good news: I have experience with the medications you are taking. I take them both now and have for a long time.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with ADD and depression, so I am on Vyvanse and Pamelor. I don't smoke, drink, take drugs, nothing "bad", I go to church, I'm a good person, I just am NEVER happy and it's a shame because I have soooooo much to be happy for! I feel like my head is ALL OVER THE PLACE, I have been diagnosed with EVERYTHING and have tried all of the meds out there, you name it, i was probably on it...
Avatar m tn One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes, and sometimes only glucose intolerances, or abnormal rises in blood sugar after a glucose load can be the only indication (this is called an oral glucose tolerance test.
Avatar f tn That doctor thought my issue was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but I'm not convinced as it hasn't been proven with a test or anything. I'm not happy to just get a label. This year, I had a yearly blood work check-up, and there was a mild Vit D deficiency. At one point, my TSH was out-of-range a little in hypo, but on retesting, it returned to normal. Up-to-date tests show my TSH, Free T4, Free T3, and the antibodies, are all normal.
Avatar f tn Antidepressants, unlike stimulant medication, can take 6-8 weeks to build in your system enough to see a difference. I have been on antidepressants/anti-anxiety medications since I was 16 (I am 34 now). I have also gone through many medication changes and found out with a blood test that I high metabolize antidepressants. This means I have to be on a controlled release version or I just burn up the medication. Just recently I was diagnosed ADD and started Adderall.
Avatar m tn Well, there’s a better option—one that doesn’t involve prescribing children legal (but still addictive) stimulants whose side effects include an abnormal heartbeat, blood pressure changes, chest pain, dizziness, and much, much more. It’s not as simple as popping a pill, but it is safer and can be every bit as effective. It involves changing the child’s diet and supplementing with essential fatty acids.
1460021 tn?1445739558 I just started a med called vyvanse about 3 weeks ago and I know the first 4 days was rough no sleep and etc. but now it works great I am just very tired come about 7-8 pm dues to the drug not working as well.......and I just read all your other sxs and me being in the healthcare field they really sound of 2 possible problems.....
Avatar f tn She gave me antibiotics incase of a sinus infection cuz she did say she saw drainage at the back of my throat. They also drew blood. My blood sugar level was at 39. They said I could've gone into a coma. They did more tests on Friday to see if it was diabetes/hypoglycemia. She also set me up to get an MRI of my head on Tuesday. I have an appointment with a syctatrist tommorow.
Avatar f tn I was on Abilify, Lea1959 .. and I gained SO much weight, also raised my blood sugar tremendously. I would complain each month about the weight gain (every month I stepped on the scale there was more weight gain) ... FINALLY I went to the Psychiatrist (I was seeing a NP who kept handing me the script for Abilify) ... The Psychiatrist said I should have been off Abilify well before I insisted on seeing her. When I came off of it, I started to lose weight rapidly.
Avatar f tn Of the 24 hour urine, 24 hour blood, ACTH stimulation, and corticosteroids, which of these should I try and why? I was thinking about the 24 hour blood AND the ACTH. But I'm new to the latter one you mentioned. I'll have to do some reading. I agree about the cortisol one not being very helpful; that's the only one I've had, as far as I can recall. What does one have to say to get their doctor to order these?
