Avatar n tn Ibuprofen every six hours ATC just to maintain so I can work and function. I do not want to take Opiates and I Do Not. I would APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE or SUGGESTIONS That Will be Helpful. I feel Terrible if I get up and Do Not drink my Coffee. I usually drink it, then take my Vyvanse and hour later.
Avatar n tn i am not a doctor but I can say that I was on Vyvnase 60 mg per day and experimented with opiates including methadone, for chronic pain, chronic bowel issues and for Opiate addiction. I was talking between 10 and 40 mgs of methadone. What you can expect is a severe decrease in the efficacy of your ADD meds Vyvanse. You will feel tired, or easily exhausted, if you are a man you will likely have a decrease in the amount of testosterone in your system.

Avatar f tn The officer said he gave him a sobriety test and said he didnt really seem intoxicated and had me take him home and had his ride impounded due to no insurance. Well he got his ride out on Thursday and yesterday the police had him again, but let my husband go get his ride, but instead of charging him with a dwi he only got a pi, due to him being at a gas station when they found him and he was not driving.
Avatar f tn They all increased his ticks tremendously. We switched over to vyvanse and that seemed so much better for the ADHD and the tics were still there but not nearly as bad. He also has been diagnosed with ODD and so at the Tourette's clinic they prescribed him a low dose of risperidone. This not only helped with the oppositional behavior, the tics were barley there.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar m tn We all know that the pharma industry gives two ***** about long term effects of their medication as long as profit is plentiful. Opiates have an abundance of positive uses and the side effects minus allergies are no worse than amphetamine salts, anti-depressants and especially benzos. Let's take a step back and re-consider instead of writing off Opium and it's naturally occurring alkaloids. Heroin is not a natural alkaloid in opium. Neither is oxycodone/oxycontin.
Avatar n tn And the idea that wanting off a drug means you shouldn't take any drug makes no sense. Opiates white-wash almost all anxiety and depression disorders, and a number of physical problems. The majority of addicts use to self-medicate. There are often underlying medical issues that need to be treated. If doctors saw addicts like people they may work to fix those problems rather than throwing Suboxone and Methadone at them to mask everything.
Avatar f tn Please help. I have been taking Narco for 3 years 5-7 a day for 3 years and Vyvanse for almost a year. I have only take 2 narco in he last 4 days and no Vyvance . Can I just stop cold turkey. My husband is keeping me physically active. I'm irritable, hot and cold. I need direction.
Avatar m tn I have been on suboxones for about 6 months now before that many years on and off of opiates. I was taking 2 (8mgs) pills a day but I have cut down to a 1/4 of 1 pill in the morning and then another 1/4 in the late afternoon. I've been able to cut down without any major withdrawal symptoms. I want to be completely free of these nasty little pills but I'm so SO scared of the withdrawals that are to come. Can you please help me with some suggestions on what I can do to get through this.
Avatar m tn So when I was off the opiates, and my anxiety/depression/attention problems returned, they were willing to help me. I was able to convince them through therapy, as well as, my behavior that all I ever wanted was a solution to my problems. That my drug abuse was about self medication and doing the best I could to get by, rather than getting high. It even took us a while to arrive at the ADHD diagnosis after I had completed the drug rehab.
Avatar f tn I've been clean from heroin/coke for a little over a year; and I didn't know I was bipolar until last summer!
Avatar f tn i feel like i am being treated like a liability to these doctors and not getting proper treatment as i have told them the vyvanse worked! i have never abused anything other than opiates and have taken adderall and vyvanse plenty of times in the past on certain occasions when i had important deadlines. never abused them, never got a high, just was able to slow my brain down and pay attention to things. so with all that said, i don’t know what to do at this point.
Avatar m tn In my case my drugging dragged me down and I used everything but opiates. I found the various versions of what we called speed back then helped me to focus. I first got clean and sober back in 1982 and stayed that way for 28 years. During that period I was in AA and later NA. I took absolutely no mind altering drugs and those recovery programs really helped to keep me on solid ground. I had a great work career that I retired from at age 55 in 2001.
Avatar m tn It is probably the vyvanse that are making you feel that way. It's an amphetamine and you should talk taking it immediately unless it's prescribed by your doctor. Just continue with a slow taper of the hydro's. For a taper to actually work well, you should reduce your intake slowly over a number of days. You should feel comfortable before you decrease your dose again. Good luck and keep posting.
Avatar f tn They drug you up with xanax and clonidine and other things after which makes it worse in my opinion. They also gave me vyvanse and told me i was adhd, which i am not. The vyvanse was basically like giving cocaine to an addict and they just sent me on my way. I was still in active withdrawal which i didnt realize and i relapse quite quickly. I am sure there are many people that stayed sober, but i just wanted to share my experience with you.
Avatar m tn I have taken ADD meds most of my life, like ritalin, and now I take Vyvanse (amphetamine based) stangely I have never been addicted to this, I don't take it on the weekends,never took more than I am supposed to. To the point, would adding L-tyrosine be a bad mix to an ADD med? ADD meds give you a kick, though not much of one as I have been on them so long. I get the effects I need with regards to focus and production. Just afraid a pick me up might blast my blood pressure.
Avatar f tn According to your mid May post on the Addiction Forum you have struggled seriously with opiates in the past and continue to have strong cravings. You stated you were taking GHB... very dangerous and I do believe it is illegal. I am not street drug literate. You also stated, Begin Quote "i'm horrible i would probably take anything that wouldnt kill me." End Quote. I am so concerned for you. I urge you to be cautious....
Avatar n tn I am wondering if that antidepressant caused some sort of change in my body that did not go away. I was opening my vyvanse capsule and taking about 1/3 of the powder and I would often have to take clonazepam to get rid of the shakes, but I think I did better taking a less amount.
Avatar m tn I have used and abused pretty much every drug their is and in my opinion the opiates were the hardest to get off of. It sounds like He has a LOT of substance abuse issues .
990354 tn?1307136486 I have just hit a little bump in the road, and I am simply having a hard time facing the reality my life has become! It's overwhelming, it's scary, and it's life.... If I can kick opiates I can def get through anything that comes by way. I just have to remember to take this one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time... You two must stay strong as well, and no more slips witsend...
Avatar n tn started subs 16 mg,now im on 4 mg and also doc finally trusting me to help adhd.he put me on vyvanse 50mg,also klonopin for anxiety and seizures.what im saying is this is helping more than anything in my life.i do not abuse any of it,my wonderful mother brings meds daily.i suffered so long now life is great again,i have friends real ones not drug friends,my family use to not want to be around me,now im over at brothers or sisters mom dad all the time.
Avatar n tn By about sat around 2p I was in hell, and really didn't know why. Put two and two together and was beside myself when I called a pharmacist and said I was withdrawing and "coming down". I was so confused and then angry. Got home immediately took adderall, ten minutes...was a completely different person, I was on top of the world. That scared me. Next day, assertively questioned doc, and she gave me the B.S. of blabber to cover her ***.
Avatar f tn Well apparently he had some sort of disagreement with the pharmacist and they exchanged words. My boyfriend is....well a loud mouth and usually gets his way when he gets loud. This time i am suffering the consequences. When the pharmacist saw i take subox, she wouldn't fill it. I would have understood, cause i truly didn't know it was an issue. She called the DEA and then called the weight loss doctor. The weight loss doc is the one that called me. Told me what the pharmacist said.
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 n tn Sleep is precious, and restful sleep is what helps heal you. I know abt. tolerance with opiates but not much abt. adderal. It would be great if you could wean yourself down, don't know if you can possibly do that. I'm sorry this is happening to you, I understand as I have two children in college and grades are crucial to them too. Hope the Dr. here can offer some help.
Avatar m tn I went back to my doctor three months ago, the same one who knew I was a drug addict, and i convinced him to give me klonopin again, as well as temezepam, and he also prescribed me vyvanse as well. No opiates though, but I do still take them.
Avatar m tn Basically, I have a hard time getting motivated, an even harder time keeping motivation (I'll get distracted easily and quickly), I procrastinate on anything and everything (I wait until the last minute on school work and end up pulling all nighters just to meet the deadline, can't get myself to study without taking a break every 10-15 minutes, haven't had a job in over a year and before that it had been around 2 years but I can't seem to get myself motivated to try and find one), get "tra
