How To Stop From Sweating On Vyvanse
Excessive sweating in armpits while taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) I take 40mg on the weekdays?
Hi, Dr. Kuhnley. I seem to be having a side effect in the form of excessive armpit sweating since increasing my Vyvanse dosage from 50mg to 70mg. I'm?
Increased perspiration is a known potential side effect of stimulants, which increase the drive of the sympathetic nervous system. Other potential related side effects can be increased blood pressure, heart rate, and GI motility.
You should bring this concern up with the prescribing doc. Perhaps a change in dose, change in drug, or new antiperspirant will be discussed. ...Read more

Meaning: It depends on what you mean. The standard half-life of the active metabolite is about 10 hours, but there is individual variation. The weight and the sweating have little effect.

Does Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) truly increase metabolism? If I stop it, is it true I will have no control over weight gain since i'll go back to my "real" metabolism?
NO: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and other stimulants can decrease appetite and so fewer calories are consumed which is why some people lose weight. There are some people who have minimal effect on appetite and do not lose any weight with the stimulants. If you do not increase the number of calories you consume or do not decrease your activity level there should not be much change in weight off the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). ...Read more
Hubby & I r ttc but im taking vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Dr says to stop once we get a confirmed pregnancy but is taking it making ttc harder? Or creating miscarriages?
Pregnancy Category C: In my opinion if you r TTC (took me awhile to figure that one out! HA!) because this is a Cat. C drug meaning we don't know how it really affects pregnancies then, I would recommend being off the drug for a minimum of 4-8 weeks, make sure you're on your Folic Acid during the same time and then, TTC. That way you'll never have a doubt as to what or what not the med is doing for conception. ...Read more
