Is it possible for vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) to lower my pain tolerance?

Unsure: No particular reason i can think of that it should, except that it may be making you more anxious, which can affect pain tolerance. If you did not have this on other forms of stimulants, would not expect you to have it with vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine).
