Vyvanse and prozac

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and prozac


Avatar f tn com/vyvanse-add-adhd-water-titration-recipe/#axzz3MBX3STCn Of course the best way is to talk to your psyc and get a lower prescription. I went back and checked out your earlier post and noticed that you might be taking some other meds. Some of those like Prozac and Paxil can counter the V. You really should tell your doc about getting sleepy and see if you can adjust the other meds. Either when you take them or the amount you take. Are you able to get a good nights sleep?
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 I am taking Vyvanse and Prozac, and I'm having trouble getting myself to eat. I am still in a healthy weight range, so I'm not worried about that. But I've been weak, fatigued, and dizzy at times because I'm not eating enough. Are there any protein shakes I should try, or something like that, so I can be getting the nutrients I need? I hate most protein shakes because I can't stand the texture, and they're usually gross. But I have to do something.
Avatar f tn No other medications at all. She was also teaching Bible studies for college aged kids, had just had her photos printed in a local magazine for her swing dancing abilities. I went to the hospital to visit her today, and she seems so empty of emotions. She was very involved in reading the Bible and I have to ask this question. She seems so disturbed that she did not do anything enough to please God.
Avatar f tn Is it safe to be prescribed xanax for a vyvanse patient who suffers from panic and anxiety issues?
Avatar f tn A year ago, My therapist said he thought I was AHDH and and put my on 50mg of Vyvanse. I thought I was fine without it but he wore me down and I started taking it. About 3 1/2 months ago, I was feeling like I was in a fog off and on and so I stopped taking my prozac. About three months ago I decided I didnt want to take vyvanse anymore as I really couldnt tell a difference. I did fine with getting off the Vyvanse.
Avatar m tn I got on Vyvanse last year and I had high blood pressure again. I stopped taking it for a while, but I was still having high blood pressure so my Dr. put me on Lisinopril 10 mg & HCTZ 25 mg. My BP has still been high on this, even off Vyvanse (I am taking it again now since I am back in school). I told my Dr. about my anxiety bc I get really stressed about little stuff and almost feel like I am going to have a breakdown. I used to be on Prozac, but didn't think it did anything.
Avatar f tn We now switched him to concerta (lasts longer than focalin)...and added Prozac. Teacher really likes the results at school. However...evenings are hectic. He becomes very silly and immature. Often displaying autistic like behaviors--flapping hands, grunting, weird noises etc. Demeanor is relatively happy and giggly....Before just on ADHD meds...the withdrawal he was very angry and aggressive. He takes clonodine to sleep. But is very amped up at night. Could this be a side effect?
Avatar f tn I then was put back on the Prozac and my doctor added Vyvanse for the binge eating disorder. The BED was cured but my OCD symptoms and anxiety have gotten MUCH worse. I am unsure if my BED will come back if I go off of the Vyvanse. I am wondering if the BED was cured partly from the Vyvanse, and partly from going back on the Prozac, which may have helped me to stop obsessing about dieting.
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.
1040418 tn?1272546323 Today I started 20 mg of Prozac and 40 Mg of Vyvanse. I am trying to adjust medicines for my life along with my diet...with the vyvanse, I have felt more aware: not draggy brain and speaking clearer...
Avatar f tn Antidepressant medications are different from each other. "Prozac and Paxil significantly, block the metabolism, the breakdown, the effective use of amphetamine products like Vyvanse, Adderall, and Dexedrine.
Avatar f tn got a new dr in may cause old one retired he had me try to up prozac and trouble with that so his asso. had me totally stop the prozac and go on wellbutrin sr 150am and pm,,,,after a week i was having prozac withdrawals so back on prozac i went and still on wellbutrin to be honest i dont know if my depression is something else cause neither brought me up or were stimulating..my new dt thinks i have slight add..anywayas i have been tapering off the prozac 10 mg a week per dr...
Avatar n tn His pediatrician feels pretty certain he also has ADD and wants to put him on Vyvanse and see how he reacts to that. I am just sick. I have such strong feelings against medicating children and here I am about to do this to him. In doing my online research I came across something called absence seizures. Does anyone know if hypothyroidism and this can be related and what are the chances he has both thyroid disease and ADD. He himself crys to me all the time that he can't remember things.
Avatar f tn I currently take Prozac, Lithium (ER), and Vyvanse each 1x a day. I also get an injection of Depo-Provera once every 3 months. I also have an Rx for Xanex, which is to be taken as needed, but I have not taken it in months. I also often self-medicate with caffine pills - I took two 200mg caffine pills yesterday around 5pm. I also took some Aleve at that time, as I have been having eye pain and headaches for the last two weeks and I was hoping to aleviate that pain.
Avatar f tn Of course I weaned him off and after 2 years, he is finally normal again and only takes Vyvanse for his ADHD. The Vyvanse has worked great and he has been taking it for 1 year. When my son went off the zoloft after 2 months his tics decreased and most of the side effects went away. I told my doctor that I took him off since I had told her before that he was having problems and all she did was raise the dose.
Avatar m tn The last is a new one called autism spectrum disorder in the old DSM-IV it would've been called Asperger syndrome. Since the age of 11 they threw SSRIs such as Prozac and benzodiazepines such as clonazepam at me. This was to help call me down but all it ever did was call my body down and my head still would race I ended up on an extremely high dosage of three different types of benzo's. We have kept the Suboxone at 16 mg.
Avatar n tn I started a higher dose of Vyvanse (70) and bi-polar stuff (3x little one) and prozac (60). I have an appointment with Dr. O today. Didn't sleep last night.... but got a little reast betwqeen 6 AM- 9 AM.
Avatar f tn It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite. However, I have been on Yaz for a few months, and I swear it reverses all the positive effects of Vyvanse (more energy/decreased appetite) because I am so tired and hungry all the time. In the past I have tried Lo-Estrin, Nuva-Ring,& Ortho Tri Cyclen. Does anyone have any recommendations for the perfect pill--i.e.
Avatar m tn my new dr put me on only 5 mg adderall upped me to 50 mg prozac and a month later dded wellbutrin sr 150 mg in am and pm....im cutting back on prozac today as dr had told me to drop down from 50 to 10 before i went on vacation,but i didnt want to freak out so i stayed on the 50 mg.im out of adderall for a few days so hope i have no efects from that...wellbutrin is causing me to have tummy fat so im cutting back to 150 mg dr didnt want to see me for 4 months..
Avatar n tn Vyvanse and Tenex for the ADHD and Risperdal and Lamictal for Bipolar. He also takes Melentonin to help him sleep. This combination of drugs to help him has been wonderful. They all seem to compliment each other.
Avatar f tn I had been taking prozac for almost 10 years and it worked great. Then, it's like it just quit working. I switched to Celexa and I don't feel like it works at all. The only thing that seems to relieve my anxiety is Xanax which I am scared of becoming dependent on. But, I am about to just say forget it and take it as needed instead of trying to stay down to 1 a day. I only take .25 mg, but it seems like it is not working as well as it used to.

Avatar n tn I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine.
11019338 tn?1414612857 I am currently taking the medication Prozac, Vyvanse, and Ativan. My first question/concern is I was wondering if Prozac and Vyvanse have any bad reactions to them when taken the same day. I am trying to get in a routine everyday to take my meds but sometimes I get off track. I take my Prozac at around 7am everyday and my Vyvanse around 12pm everyday. I get scared of taking different pills but I think it seems to be working.
Avatar m tn It wasn't always like this, this happened when i was on prozac a few months back and i am now on welbutrin + abilify + Vyvanse. This really *****, any help or ideas on fixing this?
14995990 tn?1437793261 So i was diagnosed adhd when i was 15, i am 20 now and i have been on adderal, ritalin, and vyvanse. I stopped the meds about a year ago and just recently got prescribed them once again. Im currently taking vyvanse 60mgs every morning because it really worked for me. But ive been experiencing side effect like dizziness,nausea, ive slept once in the past week for 5 hours. Im very confused, i see flashing lights in the corner of my eyes.
Avatar m tn I am partially on Vyvanse because I cannot take any antidepressant whatsoever, which occurred about three to four years ago. No clue why. Thus, off Vyvanse, my depression returns to baseline. However, like many people with ADD, Vyvanse does not agitate me but rather calms me down. Thus, I suppose the answer could in part be a rebound effect in the case of both anxiety and depression? However, the morning attacks seem anxiety related.
