Will splitting a Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) capsule into two powdered doses impact its efficacy? In particular, will it decrease effect duration?

Do not split: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a time released formulation. You should not try to split the dose. If yoiu find the morning dose does not last long enough, speak to the prescribing doctor about raising the dose, whcih should make the effect last longer. Vyvans comes in many doses, so it is likely that adjusting the dose will provide yoiu with the coverage yoiu seek.

Change: To a different medication. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is an excellent medication for ADHD when it works but for some it does not and the traditional meds seem to work better. Call your doctor and let him or her know.

Can you take 3 Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 30mg pill a day? Like one at 7am next one at 2pm next one at 8pm? It only last 4 hours for me and then I get tired after.

Not impossible, but,: This will definitely require conversation with your doctor. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) should last longer than 4 hours. From the dosing you suggest it sounds like it must last more like 6 or 7 hours. I would worry about it keeping you awake almost all night this way. You could try to take a larger dose, it is possible it might last longer. Usually even plain Adderall will last at least 4 hours.

Does 70mg Vyvanse have a larger lisdexamfetamine dimesylate dose inside of the lysine bond (not the capsule) than 30mg?

More of the Same: As I understand your question, the 30mg capsule and the 70 mg capsule just have more of the same compound in each capsule.

Feeling cold all over lately. Could it be the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)?? I take only 10 mg. Not every day. Don't take the iron pill any more.

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) side effect?: I see you also take Lexapro (escitalopram). Vyvanse alone may cause chills, a rare side effect. Lexapro (escitalopram) combined with Vyvanse may increase Vyvanse side effects. Discuss stopping the Vyvanse with prescribing doctor. If 'feeling cold' disappears, it was caused by this med. If the cold feeling continues, see your pcp to find the cause. I hope this helps. Take care.

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a drug that is converted to an amphetamine-like drug in your body. This is a stimulant. It can help people with adhd when prescribed by a doctor. Stimulants tend to cause construction of blood vessels. If the arteries and vein tissue in a man's penis constricts, he will loose his erection. This is temporary and should wear off in a day or two. If it doesn't, you should see your doctor or a urologist. Dr. Stan myers nw urological clinic portland, or.

Can I take 25 mg promethazine pill after mistaken took 120mg vyvanse 15hours ago and still can't go to sleep help desperately need of sleep?

Can I take 25 mg promethazine pill after mistaken took 120mg vyvanse 15hours ago and still can't go to sleep help desperately need of sleep?

Opps! - vyvanse: Probablly not a great idea - and unfortunately that is a large dose of Vyvanse. I think your best option is to allow your body to metabolize the Vyvanse - and let it wear off as opposed to adding another drug to your system.

Do not be scared: This one mistake will not harm you. Try to develop a simple method to remind you after you have taken a dose. For example you can place the bottle upside down after the am dose and return it to an upright position before bed. Keep it near where you brush your teeth so you see it when you are getting ready for bed.

Knowing that vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) works mostly with Dopamine. Would sex before/during/after taking the pill affect the strength? Since orgasms release Dopamine.

Knowing that vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) works mostly with Dopamine. Would sex before/during/after taking the pill affect the strength? Since orgasms release Dopamine.

Interesting thought!: However, we don't recommend frequent sex to help raise dopamine levels! Especially since the increase is likely brief and not a reason to increase or decrease medications. Regular exercise does help ADHD, but what that exercise must be is not specified, as long as you do it long enough and regularly enough. Is it's benefit due to dopamine alone? No clear answer's known.

I was prescribed 40 mg vyvanse, but I'm really scared to take it because I don't like things that change the way I think.

Vyvanse.: There are two ways to approach this. One would be to start a lower dose - I believe you can take as little as 10mg of Vyvanse daily to start. The other would be to not take it and discuss your concerns with your provider - maybe there’s another way to go for treatment.

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.

ADHD and Anxiety: Fears that are irrational are common throughout out childhood. I wouldn't think this is a side effect of his medication as he has been on the medication for awhile. If his fears continue on a regular basis and seem to impact his functioning, it would be helpful for him to talk to a therapist. ADHD and anxiety can sometimes occur together. ADHD and anxiety are treatable.
