Does geodon, (ziprasidone) saphriss, bursporine, or Vyvanse cause infertility?

Does geodon, (ziprasidone) saphriss, bursporine, or Vyvanse cause infertility?

Possible: You are on 2 antipsychotics so the risk is slightly increased. Geodon is listed as rarely causing this problem on the massachusetts general hospital website. However, information regarding saphris (asenapine) is more difficult to come by. The basic mechanism that causes infertility is an increase in Dopamine blockade causing an increase prolactin levels which subsequently affects ovulation. It would be best for your psychiatrist to check a prolactin level to see if it's elevated. If it is not then the antipsychotics should not be playing a role in infertility. I do not believe the other medications play any specific role in infertility. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Can a low dosage of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause miscarriage?

Can a low dosage of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause miscarriage?

Probably not: There are no controlled studies of antidepressants in pregnancy, which would compare them to women who are pregnant and not on the medication, so to my knowledge, there is no good research to say one way or the other.
In my practice, in my reading of the research, about one fifth of pregnancies end in miscarriage, so it's very difficult to tell what the causes are. Talk to your OB. ...Read more

I'm a fit 36yo f on vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Vyv has raised BP to155/100. Haven't tried other meds yet (cylert yrs ago). Any other stims less likely to cause this?

I'm a fit 36yo f on vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Vyv has raised BP to155/100. Haven't tried other meds yet (cylert yrs ago). Any other stims less likely to cause this?

Need to stop: That is too much of a blood pressure rise to be considered acceptable side effect. The other stimulants are also likely to cause the same effect but if your add symptoms are having significant negative impact on functioning it would be worth trying. They are out of your system by the end of the day so there should not be much carry over. Do not want to take BP meds just to use stimulant. ...Read more

Can Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause false negatives on pregnancy tests?

My Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) caused high BP symptoms last two days, but BP was 130/90 (not bad.) only thing that changed was the addition of l-tyrosine @ 500 mg. First 5 days were fine. What changed?

Metabolic interactio: 32 yo female using vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) for narcolepsy & depression. I assume you have read the long list of serious potential adverse effects of this drug. If the only thing that changed was the l-tyrosine, then I would advise stopping that. But I am not sure what "high BP symptoms" means if the BP is only 130/90. Pay attention to your pulse/rhythm etc. Talk to your doc if further side effects! ...Read more

Are there any ADHD meds that don't cause anxiety? I have suffered from terrible anxiety all my life, adderral/vyvanse just make it a lot worse

ADHD medication: If someone I'm seeing is having trouble with the stimulant based medications, I send them back to try different meds. MDs have prescribed medications like Intuniv, which is a derivation of a blood pressure medication. Also, Wellbutrin (bupropion) has also helped with ADHD symptoms.

Could Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) be the cause of my aortic valve being narrowed? I am a echo tech student and we found my valve narrower than normal its 1.7cm

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) would not: Cause a structural cardiac defect. At your age, your aortic stenosis may be congenital & mild enough not to have caused symptoms. See a cardiologist to clear you for stimulant use & monitor your BP & heart rate, since Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) increases both a bit. I monitor HR & BP in all patients on meds & send most for cardiac evals. Only once in 38 years could I not use stimulants. ...Read more
