vyvanse to reduce binge eating?



Recommended Posts

Has anyone used vyvanse to reduce binge eating episodes? How about post sleeve surgery?

Preop you have to be careful with the stimulants if you already have high blood pressure (lots of people that are looking at surgery do have high blood pressure).

Ideally peeps learn new ways of living with food addictions, rather than depending on meds. But, this is something to be worked out with your doc and therapist.

Use Google search. Someone else on another WLS forum not this one, has had good success with it.

My husband has taken vyvanse for a year or so and has lost 70 lbs. I started my first day of vyvanse today to help the bingeing I have so bad at night. I am also logging all of my meals and watching what I eat. It helps me feel more alert but I am just on the starting dose.
