Does 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

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.

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?

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

Not likely.: This is not a known problem with vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). But regardless of what meds you or are not taking, it's a good idea to repeat any lab test (particularly tests done at home)that you suspect as inaccurate.

Pay attention to your pulse/rhythm etc. Talk to your doc if further side effects! ...Read more

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
