Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse tired


Avatar f tn Hello, I have been prescribed 50mg Vyvanse and have been taking it for a few weeks now. I have anxiety issues and it seems to be a little too strong to start with, not terribly bad but I feel A little on edge. Also it seems to not last nearly long enough. I read that you can pour the powder in water and drink it. I know it had to be digested to work so my question is can I pour part of the powder straight into my mouth and then swallow with water?
Avatar f tn Anyone out there know anything about this drug? My 8 year old son was on Strattera until yesterday. He had been on it for about 4-5 months. It was helping his behavior and his grades improved SO much, I really hated that we had to change, but it was causing rapid heartbeat and it was too rapid!! He didn't say anything, didn't know it wasn't supposed to do that. So, when we discovered it, I took him back to the doctor and we changed to VYVANSE.

Avatar f tn I have been switched from Cymbalta (weight gain) to Fetzima (weight loss) and additionally 50mg of Vyvanse for adult ADD. My symptoms of depression have subsided. I do not notice any huge difference in my attention span and still feel distracted when reading, unable to focus. I also feel tired and appear to crash about every afternoon regardless of when I take the medication, which is in the morning.
Avatar f tn I'm 16 years old, male, 6'3", 185 lbs. I have been prescribed Vyvanse to treat my ADD symptoms for about two years (currently at 70mg), and the results have been amazing. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA or higher in every grading period so far in my highschool career. But, I have recently noticed that I often get dizzy while doing cardio workouts, and a dangerously high heart rate. However, I'm in no means out of shape, and am extremely ripped.
Avatar n tn 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. when i first started taking the drug i noticed that i was more clear headed and driven through the day. at the same time i noticed that my appetite had decressed,my throat stayed dry and i was having trouble falling asleep.

Avatar f tn My 11 yr old son has been taking 6 mg of Intuniv and 60 mg of Vyvanse daily for about 4 years. This combo has successfully managed his ADHD. He is on the smaller side height wise and we asked our Dr. about taking a med break this summer. He agreed and said to discontinue the Vyvanse but continue the Intuniv which we did on Friday. Since then my son has been constantly tired and ravenously hungry.
Avatar m tn I am a 19 year old male who just started college. I started taking vyvanse since the beginning of August. It has helped alot with my focus and concentration but I get jitters, I have become socially awkward, my anxiety and depression has increased, and the crash I get from it gives me horrible headaches. The crash also makes me not want to be socially active. What should I do? and are there any other good ADHD meds that I should talk to my doctor about?
Avatar n tn I tried welbutrin and it knocked me out, provigil did the same. I've been on the new Vyvanse for a few weeks now and it is too good to be true. I feel like the person I always wanted to be: Alert, funny, not compulsive with food But now the fears begin. I'm terrified and obsessed with the idea that this is a honeymoon period and it will all wear off. I constantly search the boards for a confirmation of this fear.
2106542 tn?1333931739 I'm a 40 year old male. I took Concerta 27mg about a month ago and felt slightly more caffeinated than a cup of coffee and no "focused-attentional" effects. Now I am on Vyvanse 30mg with similar results, a slight perception that my attention is more focused and less distracted, but I'm not positive about that. When I go off the meds I get tired and have crazy lucid dreams. I either want a med that works or get off completely.
Avatar m tn I started feeling tired later in the day and cranky, so I asked my doctor to switch me to Vyvanse and did. Since taking Vyvanse, when I watch anime I can tell that I enjoy the story, but I just don't feel excited. I have felt a persistent headache for 3 days now (been on vyvanse for about a week) and I feel pedestrian at all times. I can't find the desire to watch television or go out, or even play any games.
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.
447130 tn?1225474466 old ffemale who was put on Vyanse to help with my focus and concentration.I have been on Vyvanse for 1 1/2 months. The original dose wa 30mg. but I didn't see a difference so I was upped to 70mg. 2 weeks ago. The past week I have felt very unmotivated to do anything. I don't even want to talk to my friends, I just feel like being alone all the time. This is partially what I went on the drug to get rid of but it's making it worse.
Avatar f tn 5 XR until recently and the dr has recommended Vyvanse. Has anyone used this product on a child this young. I have read some side effects and it is scaring me a little.
Avatar f tn I am a fifteen year old, and I am writing this because I need some advice. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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.
Avatar f tn I recently had to switch my add meds from adderall xr to vyvanse and I am on day 2 and I feel like I havnt taken anything. I am extremely tired, have anxiety with everything going on around me at once, and I cant concentrate at all, I walked around my kitchen for 15 minutes not knowing why i wass but knew there was a reason then finally got my car keys that i was needing to get in the first place. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Adderall 10 mg = Vyvanse 30 mg, Adderall 20 mg = Vyvanse 50 mg, Adderall 30 mg = Vyvanse 70 mg. I always start lower than expected with a change to Vyvanse, as for about 10-15% that anticipated dose of Vyvanse proves too much. I don’t want folks on my watch to experience 10% problems." I would also check the comments in the above link and some of them might apply to you. the link is - http://www.corepsych.
Avatar m tn 00PM as I was so tired. I was extremely tired all day long and got nothing done at work. However, I hadn't fallen asleep by 10:30PM. So, I got up and played on the computer until I felt tired. I went to bed at 1:30AM and fell asleep quickly. I woke up at 6:30AM and felt fairly refreshed. The Vyvanse was of little help during the day but seemed to keep me awake at night. Wierd, eh?
Avatar m tn Hi Doc, I'm tired all the time and practically a person that is always in shambles. I'm 41 yrs old and diagnosed with ADHD because of my symptoms. I was prescribed Vyvanse. I took 20mg today but it put me to sleep. I was wondering if there was a possibility of me having thyroid problems because of this effect the Vyvanse had on me? I thought i was going to be focused and energized. Can you please let me know if this is the effect Vyvanse does to people with thyroid problems? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I don't like taking alot of meds but right now i take armour thyroid, cymbalta, eemt for hormones, a multviamin with iron, an adrenal supplement, vyvanse, calcium, potassium and Vitamin D3. I just had to change insurance companies and my Primary Care Physician is not in network, so I'm probably going to have to find a new physician. I do see a psychiatrist to manage my cymbalta and vyvanse.
Avatar f tn Two toddlers and desperately need sleep. Is it safe to take unisom u On top of the vyvanse? I don't want to OD but I'm tired.
Avatar f tn My husband took Vyvanse for 14 months for adult ADHD. It worked for the first few months and he was able to do a lot of projects around the house that he never would have done before; I was impressed. Then, I noticed he became short-tempered and irritated very easily, which eventually turned into full-blown aggression. We did not associate this with the drug so he kept taking it. Then we moved and he decided not to get his Rx refilled by a new Dr....
Avatar f tn I would venture to guess that the weed/Vyvanse combo set something off. I've smoked my fair share in the past and absolutely cannot on Vyvanse or similar drugs. My brother in-law had a similar experience when he was about 16/17. He mixed many drugs and his brain sort of snapped. He has a family history of bi-polar. Some people have a genetic disposition for disorders and they lay dormant until something activates it, like a weed/meth combo. I know you are scared.
Avatar m tn My sleep continues a pattern of one night of good sleep followed by one night of terrible insomnia. I have never experienced this until I went to 210mg of Vyvanse. 140mg is not enough to stay awake through the day. With 210mg, I feel tired by 8:00PM but still can't sleep if I slept well the night before. I will talk to the doctor today about adjusting the level slightly lower.
Avatar n tn i am so incredibly tired I am almost non-functional. I stopped taking my vyvanse (diagnosed ADD at 40) because it was making me shake so bad after several years of taking it with no problem. I have switched to a different stimulant that is short acting--it works sort of----I take soma and norco with 1/2 of a caffeine pill for pain--in the past, taking my meds used to actually hype me up for about 1/2 hour--but now I just feel like I am dragging.
Avatar n tn ive experimented with 6 hours, 7, 10 and ive found that im never tired due to too much sleep or too little. i have lots of headaches, i think they are from being tired. I also use the bathroom a lot. sometimes diarrehea and other times im just having to pee a lot. I dont drink to much caffeine and i drink a reasonable amount of water each day. im about 5'9'' and i weight roughly 186 pounds. Im not sure if thats overweight or not, and if its a contributing factor.
