Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse withdrawal


1549092 tn?1297049911 Your symptoms sound more like a withdrawal type of symptom, then a normal reaction to vyvance. This is a pretty good site for information for adults on meds. 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.
Avatar f tn I should have figured. I have read from several sources that withdrawal symptoms from Vyvanse can include extreme fatigue. I'm praying this is temporary and his body needs to re-adjust to life w/o Vyvanse but if I had to guess - it doesn't seem to me that he can function well enough while not on it. This is all so very frustrating and disheartening. All of his friends are moving along in college with education goals and plans and he's stuck at a standstill with no idea which way to go.
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed vyvanse 20 mg and would like to stop. How can I wean myself off this medication safely? I have been on it for a month now and on aderrall 20 mg for a month prior. I have two small children and can not afford to have severe withdrawal symptoms.
11019338 tn?1414612857 I was hooked on adderall for a good 5 years but kicked the habit after I have had enough of the terrible side affects and anxiety. I'm now on vyvanse only really bc I am currently on house arrest because of a 2nd dui charge. I take them because I get a lot of stuff done and to keep me from going insane until my house arrest is over. They make me feel and do some useless weird stuff I just want to be myself. So tomorrow starts my day without them.
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 My son has been on vyvanse for 4 months now, he is having horrible side effects, to the point where you can't reason with him. We need to get him off this terrible drug before it kills him. You can't just stop taking it because, so how do we get him off this drug?
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 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 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 f tn How can I be having withdrawal now when I ever did before? Is it piggybacking off the withdrawal I felt from the ADD drugs? How can I feel better? I feel like my arms and legs are being slightly electrocuted constantly. Not enough to hurt right away but after that dull pain for hours and hours, I'm losing my mind.

Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, I know im a rare person who actually gained weight on geodon and not seroquel. Im also on Vyvanse during the day for my add which is a godson combined with seroquel. So that is why i was able to control my eating and also so im alert during the day. My main issue was the binge eating at night when i was on geodon and seroquel. Ive been on geodon for 10 years and eventually was On such a low dose 40 mg that I just quit cold turkey.
1316877 tn?1275204213 Hey, this is an old post but would coming off pain pills, klonopin, and vyvanse cause the hallucinations as well as audible screaming?

Avatar n tn I used lortab for many more years than you and they became my personality so i am going to have to find myself so i know how you feel. i do not enjoy anything right now 3-days w/d. i just pray that we can find ourself, and not go back to using. tired of trying to "find" the pills and living a lie. with u i am. you are not alone!!
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar m tn The week on it must have helped relax the muscles because only my neck has slightly increased pain. I have no withdrawal symptoms and my energy level is good (took 210mg of Vyvanse) despite no sleep last night - and I mean that I didn't sleep for a moment. It's also Friday WOOOHOOOO! No work this weekend. I actually get to spend time with my family.
Avatar m tn I am pretty much completely dysfunctional for at least half an hour to two hours. The Vyvanse generally relieves it when it kicks in. It's as if my mind falls apart when off it. I never wake up happy to face the day, excited, etc., but instead face this same terror each and every morning. If I nap in the day, I will awake with the same reaction AGAIN and, even though Vyvanse is still active, or should be, it's as if it wore off.
Avatar n tn Last Wednesday I went to a psychiatrist and he put me on 200mg Lamictal/pm, 100mg Lamictal/am, 1mg Intuniv/pm, 20mg Geodon/pm, 10mg Ambien/pm, 40mg Vyvanse/am, 5mg Focalin/am, and 10mg Focalin/pm. Prior to this I was not taking any medications. Things seemed okay for the first three days and then I started to have attacks of high blood pressure (166/90), tachychardia (140 bpm at rest) and severe chest pain.
Avatar f tn At that time I was visiting a psychiatrist for the pain med abuse and he put me on Vyvanse for ADHD. I may have mild ADHD, but it is manageable and I really don't need meds for it, but thought it would help with the pain med abuse and just listened to the doc. Since starting the Vyvanse I now realize that it is just as addictive and habit forming as the pain meds for me. I took it correctly for maybe a month if that (started on it in Jan of this year).
Avatar f tn Different states have their own laws regarding the use of stimulants; there is a relatively new ADD medication called 'Vyvanse' that is virtually impossible to abuse, and that provides a very smooth 14 hours of effect... the medication can greatly reduce, or eliminate, the fatigue associated with withdrawal.
Avatar m tn I was taking 2 (8mgs) pills a day but I have cut down to a 1/4 of 1 pill in the morning and then another 1/4 in the late afternoon. I've been able to cut down without any major withdrawal symptoms. I want to be completely free of these nasty little pills but I'm so SO scared of the withdrawals that are to come. Can you please help me with some suggestions on what I can do to get through this. Any over the counter or prescription medications would be very helpful.
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 m tn I take 1.5 mg Klonopin + 50 mgs of Vyvanse. I have ADD but the Vyvanse is also prescribed for depression as I cannot take absolutely any antidepressant without incredible agitation. That started several years ago. Here's the problem at hand, as it starts: Every time I sleep, whether day (as in nap, a rare occasion) or night, I have disturbing dreams I can't put a finger on. I'm often very sad anxious and in some type of bad situation. THEN comes the REAL PROBLEM: I awake in absolute terror.
Avatar m tn I found that I need less caffeine than before I started taking Vyvanse. Vyvanse does a much better job than caffeine, so I drink less coffee, espresso, etc and rely on the medication. I feel better, too. I don't suggest dropping caffeine all at once...the withdrawal is a drag.
Avatar f tn Please help. I have been taking Narco for 3 years 5-7 a day for 3 years and Vyvanse for almost a year. I have only take 2 narco in he last 4 days and no Vyvance . Can I just stop cold turkey. My husband is keeping me physically active. I'm irritable, hot and cold. I need direction.
Avatar m tn Paxil at 60 mg added Adderall XR 60 mg a day ( two 30') Interestingly I've only been on this medication since January and I've been able to cut my Xanax dose down to 4 mg a day from 8 with no increase in anxiety or any withdrawal symptoms that are noticeable. The goal is to wean off of the benzodiazepine completely or to keep it between one and 2 mg a day. And yes you are right I was taking 8 mg a day that's for the 2 mg bars as recent as this December.
Avatar f tn Last June I had a breakdown and I was out of state a a physician I went to put me on seroquel, lexapro, and vyvanse....along with my klonopin. This seemed to be working, then he added Adderall and I was amazed at this. I felt "normal" for the first time in 30 years. I could think straight, and as time has gone by the depression has gone. I take 30 mg of this a day. Recently, since the insurance said they would not pay for Vyvanse and Adderall the Dr.
