vyvanse (lisdexamftamine dimesylate



Recommended Posts

I started 30 mg of Vyvanse on Monday I have to say I feel very well,

day 1 headache

day 2 had a bit of trouble sleeping

I have more energy, no trembling or shakes or rapid heart beat, a bit thirsty but that is good thing for me, it will help with my lack of Water intake, bad taste in my mouth not dry just yuck. but not hungry at all had to force myself to eat something. the bad tast in my mouth could also be from the Protein drinks, have not binged in 3 days yay me

Vyvanse was always the most effective (really the only) medicine for me to treat my ADHD. I've been off of it for a year but I'm contemplating going back on it. No weird side effects? Doesn't it make you just hate food and have trouble getting all your calories in? I've worried about this.

I have been on 70mg of Vyvanse for 8 months for adhd. Works wonders. Dr took me off for surgery. Now I am so wiggly the cat wont sit on my lap.

How early in the day do you take it? I took mine around 600 am

I have ADD and take 40 mg of Vyvanse daily. I took it up to the day of surgery and started taking again the day after. I've had no problems with it and no crashes when it wears off. I do however, take it upon waking at 6:30 - 7:00, so it's out of my system when I go to bed at 10:00. I have no trouble sleeping at night. I've been on it for years and it never really curbed my appetite. Since the surgery I don't have much appetite but I believe that's mainly attributable to the lack of ghrelin. the vyvanse likely helps too, but my hunger doesn't pick up on the weekends when I don't take it.

Were you diagnosed with BED before or after your sleeve? I have a weird anomaly in my medical record now thanks to a doctor that heard me talking about stress eating and gave me a diagnosis of BED, and now my whole initial approval process is being delayed. I'm worried the diagnosis will make me ineligible for the surgery.

I was diagnoced after my sleeve. I'm 3 years post op diagnoced with BED a month ago, I also have bipolar depression . I don't think it will make you ineligible ,we all got here from bad eating disorders your trying to help yourself , and I'm sure your bariatric Dr understands that, try to think positive , who is your Dr ?

Cherri 2082 what do you mean you quit? Taking your medication? Did the DR suggest that you should ? In my experience you should not stop taking a prescribed medication when it works for you and the Mg isn't that high

I agree with you. That's what I'm hoping too. I don't have a surgeon yet as I'm just now starting the process. I'm going through Beth Israel in Boston.
