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 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.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
