Does klonopin have an interaction with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or do they counteract one another?

Does klonopin have an interaction with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or do they counteract one another?

Hmm: Both very addictive medications. One is an upper (vyvanse) and the other is a downer - so yes, in a sense they oppose each other. I typically don't promote use of stimulants for people with "nervousness" or anxiety. but its hard to second guess your medications without knowing your history. That said, I almost never prescribe both at the same time. ...Read more

My dr just took me off 70 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and started me on prozac. How long do I need to wait before taking the Prozac to avoid a possible interaction?

Depends: If these are the only medications you are on, then there is no need to impose a wait time between starting Prozac after stopping vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). These medications are often prescribed concurrently. Prozac (fluoxetine) is considerable potential for interactions with a variety of medications.

What makes up Vyvanse other than its active compound? In other words, what additional compounds or elements, chemicals, 'inerts' etc are in the drug?

Vyvanse is a prodrug: Its chemical structure consists of dextroamphetamine coupled with the essential amino acid, L-lysine, called Lisdexamfetamine (L-lysine-dextroamphetamine). It must be converted in the body to the active stimulant, dextroamphetamine. It is useful for treatment of ADHD because the time necessary for the body to convert it allows it to be active much longer than dextroamphetamine itself. ...Read more
