Vyvanse cost

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse cost


19909356 tn?1486420175 However, the paperwork has been filled out and my insurance company has said they will not cover my Vyvanse prescription and to pick up my prescription would cost $300 for a 30 day supply. I still have some leftover caps from past prescriptions so I'm not totally without it (at least for the next few weeks) but I'm wondering if it's normal for an insurance company to stop covering a prescription for seemingly no reason?
Avatar f tn The doc choose this med over provigil because of cost. Does anyone have experience with taking either of these for excessive fatigue or focusing issues? I'd just like to know how it worked for you. I have a full time job that requires being focused so it's very important that I find the best way to get my brain "working" again.
Avatar f tn To answer your question, yes, that will help. But, the trouble with the IR is the stronger hit at release time. Not to mention the cost of many pills. I would look into extended release. Or an even better solution might be Vyvanse. It lasts longer then XR and has a smoother release. Hope this helps. Please post if you need any more info.
Avatar n tn Several years later, my pain condition had increased and i also was dealing with depression and anxiety and brain fog. A new psych put me on vyvanse----not just for ADD but because he said it also helped with depression. My world opened up for a while----I was getting so much done. I was on 70 mgs with no noticeable side effects. The effects wore down some, but they were still good enough to counteract the narcotics.
Avatar f tn Reduced me back to 40mg Vyvanse in the am and because I said the 100% d-amp (realizing that is in effect what Vyvanse is after it cleaves) was making me too jittery switched me to a new drug - Evekeo. Which is 50% d-amp and 50% l-amp... From what I can research (bad habit on my part) the l-amp is what causes all the side effects people don't like in Adderall? The 50/50 split of D/L amps is, from what I can tell, the exact formulation of Benzedrine - which was removed from the market?

Avatar n tn u won't know the cost of the med until you find out. The brand i use picks up my copays thru their patient assistance program, so my cost is zero.
Avatar n tn and the reason i drink a lot of water is because im on ADD meds (vyvanse) and acne meds (doxyxycline) that make me thirsty, a common side effect (they give me dry mouth and make my breath stink, shh dont tell anyone haha), but i dont think these medications are a factor for two reasons: 1. i just changed from concerta to vyvanse, which are two very different medicines, 2 months ago, but the fainting began 4 months ago. 2.
405614 tn?1329147714 I'm going to my pharmacy today; I'll ask my pharmacist about the cost and side effects. It would be great if that could help with my fatigue as well as help me lose weight, and cost a lot less than Provigil. Heck, I looked it up and it is also in the same class as amphetamines, and could raise my heart rate/BP. I'll ask how it compares to Ritalin as far as side effects. I think Ritalin reduces the appetite, too, and would cost me a small co-pay.
Avatar f tn My sons med cost him $120 every 3 months and he takes Vyvanse, which works for him. We all need to give support to each other as well.
Avatar n tn A good psychiatrist will be willing to sit down with you and have a 'cost vs benefits' discussion about your treatment options. Though many adults do benefit from taking stimulants, you may need to try more than one before you find a good fit. Stimulant alternatives (such as Strattera) have not been shown to be as effective for management of adult ADHD, but that does not mean that they might not give you some benefit without the same side effect profile.
702513 tn?1228516297 I am taking three times the recommended maximum amount of Vyvanse (a lot like Adderall) which is 70mg to function. Read up on Adderall. The 60mg maximum is based on old studies conducted on children between the ages of 6 and 12. If your husband is a big guy (I'm 6'2' 220 pounds) 60mg is nothing. I tried 60mg and it didn't dent my fatigue. Try to find a doctor to prescribe "off-label", usually a psychiatrist, to increase the Adderall.
Avatar n tn And it's FREE! I can't believe it! No admission cost and it's free! Squeeze a non-existant pimple to see stuff come out. Of course moving right along I have the nose picking (so gross, I know) and the "bobby pin in the ear" to get that gunk out, which only causes more build up.... hey, more fun right? Can't forget about picking my nails, my hangnails and any skin around those...
Avatar n tn I was on vyvanse first but had some.bad affect like excessive crying and such that neurologist said my meds were right all except the anxiety medication would cause migraines with my pth but... So far Ritalin has helped me to stay awake just that's all its done is keep Mr awake I'm unmotivated and still sleepy but I can stay awake.
Avatar n tn It would have cost lost of $$$ and a pregnancy midway through would have not been good. I was on a birth control that made my period go away and my husband and I were using condoms bc. the birth control was very time sensitive (had to take within an hour of the day that you took it before). So I made till week 11 without knowing that I was pregnant. That is one week away from being done with the first trimester. Then I went off medication cold turkey and it was HELL. Absolute HELL.
Avatar n tn He has been diagnosed with hep c about 14 years ago, but has mostly had few symptoms, mostly his biggest complaint, fatigue, but he has worked through it. His regular md prescribed vyvanse several years ago to get him off the couch. I think giving him this drug, basically speed, has masked the fatigue symptom and allowed him to over work himself to end up where he is now.
1190024 tn?1264692022 Oh, I forgot to mention there are several free/low cost ways to get the mental health care you need. I go thru a state funded Mental Illness clinic and receive free p-doc and free meds. You may want to investigate the internet to see which services and the criteria would be to qualify.
Avatar f tn You can punish him as severly as anyone can imagine (without crossing the line into abuse), and literally within a minute (yep, 60 seconds) he is singing and skipping through the house. He is currently on Vyvanse (2x daily), Prozac (1x daily), and Rhispidol (nightly). All of this just makes him somewhat capable of living with. He has been on EVERY medicine for ADHD and this seems to be the best combination we've found.
Avatar f tn Ondansetron has been trialled for fatigue by Piche et al. With some good results, but the cost of the pill is expensive, between $25 - $60 per pill. Take care everyone.
Avatar f tn It also could be caused by the vyvanse I am taking--it is a stimulant that i would like to get off of. I also take 1/2 of a cafeinne pill with my pain meds--but I don't usually notice the shakes from that. The shakes usually start after I have been up for a couple of hours, which makes me think it could be the stimulant---that is about how long it takes for the full amount to get in your bloodstream.
Avatar m tn Seems like so many folks that don't need it take it according to as search I just did I honestly doubt anyone is studying what has happened to people like us ----- there are a LOT of us but we seem to be pushed off as an anomaly --- All the people that reach SVR and have no side effects are what they are concerned about ------ Looking into folks like us and what happened cost money.
Avatar f tn We have now had 2 that worked for a little while and then stopped. For us, cost was also an issue for a bit. The kids were in between insurance agencies and the long acting medication is more expensive. The bottom line: Yes, meds can help, they can also be a problem. Always keep in close touch with your Dr and pharmacist. IMHO if a child starts new meds, the rd should want to do a follow up in 2 weeks. 4 at the most. Also read all product inserts. Talk to your pharmacist.
Avatar f tn The Adderall or Vyvanse often gets blamed. The Prozac and the Paxil are the problem. More about Adderall in a later post. Read more: http://www.corepsych.com/2006/11/adderall-prozac-and-paxil-problem-not-solution/#ixzz3AWdzGMAh Problem being that straterra is not a stim med per se, but that interaction may occur. I will try and find out more on that.
Avatar m tn I just got out of La Hacienda Treatment center in Hunt, TX. Detoxed from zfentanyl, Percocet, Alcohol, benzios, Ambien. Adderal, Vyvanse, nuVigil - was in bad shape and abusing all. They made detox a smooth rider and thru rehab learned excellent coping skills, detailedc12 step recovery, how to reconnect spiritually, and I fell better than I have in years. I can be done!! Take a look at La Hacienda - it may be your solution. -Lainey.
Avatar f tn So what I don't like is that Concerta is a good med, but it is not as strong or as long lasting as the adderal/Vyvanse medications. Have these been tried? Also I am not a fan of Resperdal (law suits against them is one reason) for several reasons. Major one being it reduces the effect of the stim meds. He has severe ADHD, and you are reducing the med that can help him the most in his daily life. See this link. http://healthlifeandstuff.
Avatar f tn Another member has recommended that I look into Low Dose Naltrexone LDN which will be part of a very long, indepth interview with this new guy... as well as Vyvanse. A fight I have been on with the local insurance - to get back on for that two years. The only stimulant that seems to work for my chronic fatigue! They have forced me on Amphetamine Salts ER 20mg which is like a sugar pill and has started to give me nightmares! My psychiatrist disagrees. Another idiot! Sorry for the rant.
Avatar n tn Everyone thinks I am lazy and I am not I am so tired all the time or my stomach hurt or now my face and hands are tingling and pulsating and this has been happening for over 2 years now its driving me insane I dont know what to do and of course now I have no insurance so all of this cost me so much money but with out even this little help I feel worse even though still feel like ****... I am going insane seriously....
Avatar f tn If you are worried about the expense, I can relate BUT if a preventable condition advances, it will require even more expensive medical treatment and will cost you more than just money. Chronic, untreated conditions can reduce life expectancy and affect your ability to work. Use good judgement. Don't be an alarmist but if your discharge is accompanied by other symptoms of significance, get medical attention and answers. Don't live to regret ignoring that "little voice" of reason.
