1549092 tn?1297049911 I think you will find the information useful as it compares Vyvanse vs Adderall XR. Do make sure you also click on their ADHD link at the top of the page once you have finished reading. The site is - http://healthlifeandstuff.com/2009/07/vyvanse-vs-adderall-simple-vs-complex. You also might want to check out another very good site for adult ADD. Its has a different approach to the matter as it is all done with videos and was recently featured in a special on PBS.
Avatar m tn I started Vyvanse back in August 2010, and it was the miracle that I've been searching for. Over a span of 4 years, I've taken stimulants including: Concerta, 30mg Adderall IR, and 30mg Adderall XR. Concerta gave me migraines. Adderall XR completely sucked. Adderall IR was the best medication that I found until Vyvanse. Now I think Adderall is horrible in comparison. I've been taking 30mg of Vyvanse for a few months now. This has been my adjusted dose from trying 20mg, 30mg, and 50mg.
Avatar n tn This seems to occur more often in adults with heart problems. If a person has been taking Vyvanse evidence of this drug can be detectable in the urine from 1 to 3 days and even 5 days .It is best to see a doctor if the symptoms are severe. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn My resting heart rate on vyvanse is usually around 70..
Avatar f tn I have started back Vyvanse last month at a low dose, it's not working like it should. I am 34 and in school so I need it to work. But what is a dose that helps the symptoms of ADD the best?
Avatar n tn about a month ago i went to my family doctor because of concerns over a recently developed rapid heart beat (95 at rest). while i was there i brought up my add and depression symptoms. he refered me to a psych. my psych told me that vyvanse would help my add and my depression. he started me on 30mg and had to move me up to 50mg after 2 weeks because it was wearing off half way through the day and i would get extremely tired.
Avatar f tn His doctor put him on Vyvanse. He has since flunked out of 2 colleges due to the fact that he can't focus. He IS and has always been a very good athlete, playing football and basketball in high school and college. I assume that is due to the fast-pace of those sports. However, I am beginning to wonder if the Vyvanse is working on the problem. The doctor said that he has to get him on the right dosage and has been changing the strength.
Avatar m tn i have taken vyvanse, and adderall (unprescribed) on a couple of occasions to help me with my school work, but this afternoon i had one of the worst experiences of my life. i had purchased a 70 mg vyvanse pill, took 1/4 of it yesterday and the other 3/4 this morning, so today i was on about 50 mg.
Avatar f tn Stimulant medication for the treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) does not affect heart rate or blood pressure and can be safely administered in this patient population, new research suggests." From - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/852555?src=wnl_edit_tpal&uac=96999MR Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Do you think the Vyvanse is causing these problems? Are these dangerous signs of any heart problems developing? I appreciate your time and thoughts.
1218579 tn?1267642416 Three days ago my doctor had me stop taking vyvanse for ADD. This was due to increases feeling of overwhelming feeling of need to be moving or going. I only took it for two weeks. Prior to taking vyvanse I took ritalin for a year and did just fine. Until I had my thyroid removed and I was having heart problems and was pulled off ritalin.
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 There is no need for him to cease using the prescribed vyvanse but do take care of the other addictions. Vyvanse wont be prompting the use of them, but if not taken care of he will prompt the use of them.
1575110 tn?1334668235 What is the most effective drug Concerta or Vyvanse or any other suggestions? I have heard of daytrana as well, but I'm an adult. I'm slowly getting everything back together.
Avatar f tn I hope things went well for you with the vyvanse. I unfortunately stopped my vyvanse cold turkey and had a grand Mal seizure when I was 38 and never had a seizure in my life before that. My doctor said you should always ween yourself off any type of stimulant.
1447814 tn?1284739057 for the last 3 months who now says he is ADHD and the want to put him on Vyvanse. I just want to hear what anyone has to say about it and if they have a child with ADHD or similar behaviors please share. I have not started the meds but suppose to start tomorrow. The behavior at school has to stop he is getting behavioral forms sent home everyday. I dont know what else to do!
Avatar f tn ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just a little while ago, I felt as if I was in a thick, tired fog, making it extremely difficult to type. My eyes didn't look right, and I was feeling off-balance. My heart was racing. I randomly had strange "fuzzy" sensations on my skin. I was sensitive to, and irritated by, a lot of normal, everyday things. I felt like a zombie and I couldn't think straight. These are just some of the things I've been experiencing for the past two days.
Avatar m tn To make a long story short. I haven't taken vyvanse for 3 months but have consistent chest pain which started when taking the drug. my blood pressure did go up when taking the drug so i was put on atenolol. I had since discontinued the drug (about 3 months ago) but the side effects continue . I have 24/7 tight chest. Anyone with similar experience, recommendations, etc?
Avatar n tn i read through the side effects and realized that a number of other problems i already had could also be side effects of vyvanse---which makes me wonder if the vyvanse could be making those problems worse. i already have headache problems and aching muscles and anxiety and depression---all of which have gotten worse over the last several years. i'm thinking this medication has worn out it's welcome in my body---and, i don't seem to get the same help from it that i did originally.
Avatar m tn Hello all I am a 28-year-old male and I have struggled with addiction since my teenage years I was clean for sometime the past couple years and then stopped working on my recovery and drank and smoked weed for a while a couple of months ago I made the decision to get and stay clean again I have 37 days clean in a row I saw my psychiatrist today who knows about my struggles with addiction and knows I'm a recovering addict and he is convinced I have ADHD he wants to give me VyVanse which is simila
Avatar f tn I used to be prescribed to vyvanse but I haven't taken it in years and once I decided to take them to get that speed feeling because I was desperate. I took 12 pills where each pill was 40mg writhin an hour. I felt good alright at first and the effects didn't hit me till like 2 hours because they were old pills. I started to feel strong and looked in the mirror to notice my arms were unnaturally bigger.
Avatar n tn I am currently taking 80 mg of vyvanse which includes a 20mg capsule and a 60 mg capsule of vyvanse , I also take 300mg Wellbutrin. My therapist prescribed me intuniv xr 1mg for the first week and 2mg for the second and third week . My question is should I take all 3 medications AT&T once? Is it safe , also I work out every day essentially cardio, can I still run as hard as I did before adding intuniv into my daily mediation?
Avatar m tn http://www.drugsdb.com/rx/vyvanse/vyvanse-overdose/ You really should have told the doctor in the ER what you took. When you withhold vital info in a medical setting, you're basically handicapping the doctors. They wouldn't be looking for certain things that may be pertinent with the possible OD. I think your best bet, for peace of mind anyway, would be to return to the ER, and be honest about what you took, so they can do the appropriate work-up. Same with a cardiologist...
11323603 tn?1417237392 Using this medication improperly can cause death or serious side effects on the heart. Vyvanse should be taken in the morning with or without food. Do not take this medicine in the evening because it may cause sleep problems (insomnia). Do not crush, chew, break, or divide a capsule. Swallow the capsule whole. To make swallowing easier, you may open the capsule and sprinkle the medicine into a glass of water or mix it with yogurt.
Avatar n tn At about four in the morning I took a 15-30 mg slow release focalin because I thought the effects of the vyvanse were gone. I don't have ADD so that may be part of the problem. My heart rate was very high, i was lightheaded at times, and my temp climaxed at 99.5, checked every twenty minutes or so. I was wondering if there was a good chance I had a mild heart attack or if those were common symptoms for, I assume I did, overdosing on those type of drugs.
Avatar f tn This is my 3rd month on Vyvanse. 1st wk on 40mg. I was on 30mg prior. I feel fine for the first 2-3hrs after I take it. If anything I tend to hyperfocus on things and have to make myself switch tasks. However around the 3-4hr mark my heart starts pounding, head starts feeling foggy, face tingles, vision gets super blurry, I lose all motivation and get irritable. I have taken my blood pressure multiple times during that period and it's perfect.
Avatar m tn in Athletic Heart, ALL of the walls of the heart are enlarged, not just the left ventricle which would be seen in a true cardiomyopathy. Now, having said that, you say you have been drinking quite a bit; there is something known as Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy which will improve if the patient stops drinking. You may want to consider giving up the drinking. An EF as you describe is normal which is good.
Avatar m tn So I just had to come to google to see why my Vyvanse wasn't working for me anymore, and I saw your comment.. I have been on Vyvanse for maybe a year now and have found that my 70 mg dosage just isn't kicking in or working as well as it used to for me anymore?? So is this happening with you as well? Like it's still really hard for me to focus, and I really don't feel the effect of the medicine at all anymore. I wonder whats happening? :( And if anyone has any information on this?
