Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and wellbutrin


Avatar f tn I take 50 mg vyvanse, but for a month i was on wellbutrin. The wellbutrin cause be extremme levels of anxiety and made my vyvanse useless.
Avatar m tn I developed a kidney stone and bladder issues from taking apmhetamine based stimulants, so currently off Vyvanse and Adderall. I'm trying to manage my symptoms by taking Wellbutrin XL 150 twice a day, and taking Tyrosine. We'll see how long it lasts....
Avatar f tn I have been taking 300 mg of Wellbutrin and 30 mg of Vyvanse for about a year now and recently my heart has been racing (100-110 beats per minute after sitting on the couch for an hour) and I have been having minor chest pains. Also, I have been feeling "out of it" sometimes during the day, and experience dizziness, confusion etc. on occasion. I was wondering if this could be related to my medications and if there is need to be concerned about my heart rate.
Avatar n tn I am surprised that he gave you vyvanse. My dr. gave me Wellbutrin and it produced none of the side effects you mention except decreased cravings for caffeine and sweets. Our pharmacist said vyvanse is a lot like adderall; he said everyone seems to be using it who would have previously been on adderall. It is very trendy right now. But I do not think it would help with anxiety at all, and I would guess anxiety might be causing your heart rate to be rapid.
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 Hey Win, I have a son on vyvanse and takes it only on school days and never in the summer. He does not have any side effects or w/d going off of it and he has been on it for 2 years. He doesn't act any different except maybe his appetite increases when off. It is gentler than adrenal I was told. I think you'll be just fine. So much of w/d is mental so keep a positive attitude. Much luck.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention the dosages of Cymbalta - 90mg, Wellbutrin - 300mg, Vyvanse - 70mg. I also forgot to mention that I am suffering from debilitating fatigue and "brain zaps" that also started soon after beginning Cymbalta and Wellbutrin.
1190024 tn?1264692022 Hi - I have a pretty extensive background, but will try to make this as short & easy to comprehend as possible. I'm a 33 year old single mom who has struggled with "mental issues" for many years. At the age of 15 I was placed on Prozac for depression. Over the next 15 years I tried Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, and several others.
Avatar f tn I've heard positive feedback about it helping with depression, but nothing really on its effectiveness with adhd. I just stopped taking vyvanse and was put on this, and was nervous I would have trouble, due to that I'm used to taking the stimulant drugs. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!
Avatar f tn When I was a kid I tried many ADHD meds, but I don't remember if they were helpful then. Recently I've been on generic Adderall, and Vyvanse. I found Vyvanse to work the best, and my doctor thinks Vyvanse is the best that's out there right now.
1094380 tn?1257180947 I'm 31 and almost 12 weeks pregnant. I stopped taking my ADHD medication (Vyvanse) 2 months before becoming pregnant and I was able to control it until I got pregnant. I am also a low risk pregnancy. This is also my 3rd pregnancy. I'm not taking any other medications. Question: Are there any ADHD medications that are safe during pregnancy? I feel like I can't accomplish anything at work because pregnancy makes me even more scatterbrained.
Avatar m tn Atenenol was prescribed and works fine. I already take 300mg Wellbutrin and 10mg Valium. Just a couple of months ago I was diagnosed ADHD, and Vyvanse was prescribed, along with clonidin. I have to really watch my blood pressure now, because if I miss taking the atenenol, my blood pressure will shoot up over 160 really quick. Is there any solution for people with 2 conditions like this where the medication for one condition diametrically opposes the medication for the second condition ?
Avatar n tn I take 40 mg of vyvanse and I also suffer depression. I was given lexapro 10 mg. i found it self-defeating i was tire all the time and unable to focus or work. are there better combinations for depression and adhd? by the way, he took me off of lexapro. I've tried zoloft, gave me a skin rash. Also at one time i was on wellbrutin and stratera. i liked the well brutin but the straterra made me feel weird. any suggestions? I feel pretty hopeless...
Avatar f tn I am now 90 pounds heavier (I started gaining weight on the meds and continued after) and not even able to get pregnant (probably too heavy and getting off the meds messed up my system.) I want' to get pregnant which was fine with everyone two months ago before I got off my meds now everyone thinks I'm in need of major help and need to get my head straight. I just don't know what to do because after researching these meds I'm very scared to get pregnant on them.
Avatar m tn I went to my doctor about 9 months ago and am now on Vyvanse and Fluoxetine. Although my depressions meds should be stronger I have not yet made that jump as I am worried about the reaction of the 2. Thus far though they have worked very well together. Vyvanse is a newer ADD med and I specifically requested something other than Adderall due to side affects.
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 f tn I had an allergic reaction to both, Adderall and Vyvanse, and my body refuses to metabolize these type of drugs properly. What do I do now? Just take Wellbutrin XL 150 for life? I'm a total disaster at work w/out the stimulants. Anyone knows of alternatives? I do take Omega-3s, vitamins, acetyl l-carnitine etc.
Avatar f tn I took Procrit and Wellbutrin. 3. Before tx, fatigue and the skin disease were already my primary symptoms. Like many people here, I kept getting odd illnesses, strange cases of the "flu" etc., and always needed a nap midday. At one point I was convinced I had West Nile virus. Only when my ALT rose did they test for hcv, which the docs estimate had been with me for at least 20 years. 4. No.
Avatar n tn I was already on Wellbutrin 150 mg twice a day and a diet, by the way,and struggling with depression over my weight. Two years later, I am at 200 mg per day of Topomax, headache free with no change in the flavor that I can apprciate. I am also wearing a size 6 working to a size 4. One caution. If you have anorexic tendencies, as I do, be very careful. I forget to eat, don't want to eat, strive for that smaller size, although everyone tells me that that is enough weight loss.
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 f tn I prescribed60 mg of adderall but one week I had to take left over phentermine and 10mg adderall and my focusing was great and energy and I still do take 1/3 of phentermine a day.
Avatar f tn My medication is Wellbutrin (SNRI rather than SSRI) and it works well for me. So to answer your question, a lot of people go off the meds when they feel good only to find out that they need them. Others like me, went off for a time but found myself back on them at some point. So it is really up to what you want to try. For myself, I'm not going off of it ever again but then I'm 48 and you are much younger.
Avatar f tn She understood the Adderall working better for me, and said there had been no need for both Vyvanse and Adderall, although when on those two, I hardly had to take the Klonopin. I thought I functioned better than I have in like I said 30 years suffering with this disease. She said she would not prescribe both, and that I was to stop Klonopin, since it was a downer and Adderall was an upper, and I should not do that. I said ok, but was concerned about it.
Avatar m tn I'm back on Wellbutrin again, and my current plan is to go off of the ADHD meds all together, and wait for my body to stabilize on the Wellbutrin. I then hope to titrate my doses using Adderall, Evekeo, and vyvanse, to see if a wellbutrin-stabilized version of myself responds to those medications. I'm hesitant to try methylphenidate because of the bad experience, but I'm open to suggestions. All ideas are welcome! Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn I use to take cymbalta and it worked then all of a sudden i was feeling like i was having anxiety attacks from taking it, my doctor put me on that and wellbutrin, i still felt that way, then he put me on 300 mg of wellbutrin and stopped the cymbalta it wasnt working so yesterday i took my cymbalta and wellbutrin again and started having anxiety attacks bad again, can that have been what caused the anxiety attacks again?
Avatar m tn But, taking amphetamines during WD seems like a bad idea as it could increase discomfort. He is trying to get clonidine for the opioids and has a prescription for wellbutrin which I've read could help increase serotonin sustainability maybe easing the time in WD. Anyone been through this? Or have any advice? Thank you! Ps I know the sound advice is see a Dr., do this in a controlled setting, stay away from mixing meds etc.
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 m tn Serequel 100mg Vyvanse x2 60mg Pristiq 50mg Wellbutrin 300mg Adavan 2-3mg Age: 17 male History: been hospitalized twice but no clear diagnosis has ever been made other than ADD and Depression. *suspected mood disorder or sensory modulation disorder. I've been depressed since 12 but this is just out of control. I can't get to school because I can't wake up and if I do I'm fatigued all day. I constantly feel depressed, like my suffering won't end.
