On Prozac&vyvanse and want to know if I can take supp evening primrose ginkgo biloba fish oil acidophilus L-arginine ginseng damiana gotu kola gre tea?

Why????: None of the things you mention are of the slightest benefit for anything. They are sold by com men to suckers in order to cheat them out of their money. If you want a placebo I suggest a roll of Necco wafers. Some are worse than others. Put them all in a bag and take them to show your DR. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Vyvanse and benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Is it safe to take Vyvanse and benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Safe but not advised: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is too sedating, resulting often in some cognitive suppression. The reason for taking the Vyvanse in the 1st place is to enhance cognition. There are better antihistamines. And, if the purpose of the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is to help sleep at night, there are better choices. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and claritin?

Yes: Idiosyncratic differences are always a possibility, but if you can take both of these meds individually, then there should be no problem taking them together.

Is it safe to take unisom for sleep if I take 50mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in the daytime. I have never been a good "sleeper" but I'm trying to get more rest.

Unisom SleepTabs: Contain doxylamine and unisom SleepGels contain diphenhydramine. They are antihistamines that can make people sleepy. They are safe to use with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine).

I am currently taking lexapro Wellbutrin (bupropion) and alprazolam. Is it safe to take vyvanse with these medications?

I am currently taking lexapro Wellbutrin (bupropion) and alprazolam. Is it safe to take vyvanse with these medications?

It may not be: Wellbutrin (bupropion) has a well-known potential side effect of producing seizures (usually in higher doses like 450mg/day and in seizure-prone individuals) and Vyvanse may compound that risk. I am not a fan of alprazolam use in most people, particularly those with depression. Sounds like your depression has been significant, and perhaps you should consider a second opinion from another psychiatrist. ...Read more

I'm taking lexapro Wellbutrin (bupropion) and alprazolam. Is it safe to take a vyvanse with these medications in my system?

I am a 36yo female on 50mg of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Is it safe to take 7-keto dhea supplements and bio-identical progesterone cream?

Why?: The safety of the combo has never been studied. Why would you want to take these supplements which are not recommended as treatment for any human problem or disorder. Bio-identical just means it costs a lot more, not that it's appropriate to use. Keto-dhea can lead to many potential side effects. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Vyvanse with viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) my doctor recently switched me from cymbalta to viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) and was just curious.

To be certain, tell: All of your prescribing docs the meds you are currently taking before they write you a prescription. There's no formal interaction between these two, and it's likely the same doc is writing for both. However, if you remain concerned, phone the docs office and make sure s/he was aware of all if your meds :) be well! ...Read more

I take 50mg Vyvanse daily and wellbutrin, (bupropion) crestor and piavix. Is it safe to add the ripped GNC vitapak. I work out almost daily and run 10+ miles wk?

Risk for rhabdo: Not recommended. The combination of this supplement, intensive exercise and Crestor (rosuvastatin) is a pretty good set up for a condition called rhabdomyolysis. It causes muscle breakdown leading and may lead to kidney disease and other adverse effects. Quitting chewing tobacco and spending your dollars on healthy fruits & vegetables will provide a more meaningful long-term health benefit. ...Read more

Just had my wisdom teeth out, prescribed penicillin & steroids. Safe to take with my 20mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)?

Skip the Vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine): ...At least at first....You'll be taking something for pain, probably sitting with an ice pack for a day or two...I strongly doubt you will be needing the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). I would say as long as you are on the steroids, you should stay off the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Technically it would be ok to take them both, but steroids can often affect one's mood to where it may be best to not take the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). ...Read more

I take Vyvanse to treat narcolepsy and Zoloft for depression/anxiety. My md has suggested adding wellbutrin (bupropion) for anxietyas well. Is this a safe combo?

Re-evaluate Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): I'm wondering if the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) itself is causing you some anxiety. Perhaps adjusting its dose or trying another psychostimulant will help with the anxiety. I would also like to encourage you to consider supplementing with inositol, gaba, holy basil, or magnesium (peter gillham's natural vitality calm -- a "bioavailable" form of magnesium). Also aerobic exercise to energize and ease the anxiety. ...Read more
