Vyvanse 60 Mg Vs Adderall
Dextroamphetamine|racemic amphetamine is an appetite suppressant which is a kind ...Read more
It all depends: Yes, you can theoretically take it. The question is if you need that much. Shire, inc. (makers of adderall) actually did a study years ago looking at 40, 50, and 60 mg of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) xr doses and found benefit at the higher doses for the most severely "add'ish" of the studied patients. This also conforms to the "biederman max" of 0.5 mg of amphetamine per lb per day if you are 120 lbs or over. ...Read more
Does Effexor (venlafaxine) XR make Concerta less effective? I take 112.5 mg and 108 mg, respectively.
Im switching from 54 mg cocerta to Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 30 mg. Should i expect any reaction?
Hard to know: Those are rough equivalent doses, but people respond differently to the two classes of stimulants (conerta is methylphenidate; Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is amphetamine). It's not that one is better than the other, just that they are different. The act of switching should not cause a problem, but you may find that side effects and benefit are different--could be better or worse. ...Read more

Prescribed 60 mg of generic adderall ir and generic Wellbutrin (bupropion) xl 150 mg, I feel like the Wellbutrin (bupropion) is decreasing the effectiveness of the adderall?
Wellbutrin (bupropion) & adderal: The 2 meds could interact, as Wellbutrin (bupropion) does have some ability to help with concentration, and it wouldn't necessarily be an additive effect with addeerall. Too much of something can sometimes not work. Please talk to a Psychiatrist before just changing meds on your own. If you have been getting the meds from a regular Physician, please see a Psychiatrist. Any combo psych meds shd be Psychiatrist ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was prescribed Prozac 40 mg, Ritalin 10 mg, Concerta 108 mg, Remeron 30 mg and Risperdal 3 mg. Is this number of drugs safe?
Depends...: on what you and your doctor decide together. There are theoretically some interactions among the drugs you've listed, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will experience them. It's difficult to know all of the possible interactions when you have this many medications in combination. Some of the drugs' metabolism could be affected or you may have increased risk of side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which would be more recommended, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 20 mg once a day or Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir 20 mg 2x a day? Any difference in side effects or effectiveness?
Depends on situation: There are a lot of factors that would need to be considered including lifestyle, capacity to readminister a medication throughout the day given the schedule, need for alertness at the very beginning of the day, frequency of the experience of insomnia, and sensitivity to appetite suppression. Also, it should be noted that Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 20 mg twice a day would be twice as many milligrams of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Discuss w/your doc: I'm sorry, but we really don't know enough about you to recommend one drug over another for you.

You should ask your doctor about anything you don't understand on prescriptions or reasoning for them. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not necessarily: As a starting dose that is definetely a high dose, but if you have been on it for while it is a moderate dose. Tolerance may occur which means that after a while the same dose is no longer effective. Doses more than 40-60 mg are unlikely to have increased benefit and something else should be considered. Talk to prescribing coctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do I have withdrawal like symptoms from starting Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) after ending Adderall if I was only taking 20mg of Adderall a day and take 60 Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) now?
Unlikely withdrawal: It is unlikely that if you start Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 60 mg when you end Adderall 20 mg that you are in amphetamine withdrawal. Rather, you can be having adhd symptoms that fail to respond to vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine), (lisdexamfetamine) or, more likely, you could be experiencing Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) side effects, or even an allergic reaction to vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). You most certainly should discuss this situation with the clinician prescribing your vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
You should: Do what the prescribing dr recommended for you. Best wishes. ...Read more
Not necessarily...: I have patients that take one or the other... Or both! it depends on what you're treating... Narcolepsy? Add/adhd? Sometime you have to carefully conduct a trial, at different times, and take good notes, get others' observations... See which benefits you most, with the least side effects or risk. I'd definitely recommend that you review this with a knowledgable psychiatrist! ...Read more
Sure.: Adderall xr has a two-hit delivery system, one kicking in 20-30 minutes after taking it and then again 3 1/2 to 4 hours later. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a prodrug that is inactive till it gets into the body and is broken down into lysine and amphetamine. That means effects start up much more slowly (1-2 hours) and taper off much more gradually. Side effects and benefits are about the same. ...Read more
If I normally take 30 mg of vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) will it be safe to switch to 20 mg adderall?
Roughly, a dose : of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = about 3 times a dose of Adderall XR. 30 mg. of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or ~10 mg. of Adderall XR is a low daily dose for an adult. Starting at15 mg. of Adderall XR & titrating up under your psychiatrist's guidance to optimal effect without side effects may be more tolerable.

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and Adderall no longer very effective, even with dose increases. It worked great a year ago. So, what now?
Has taken more than prescribed dose in the past of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and adderall ir, if 50mg vy isn't working what are healthier options.
Your prescriber will: determine the dose necessary based on your response and any side effects. If 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is not helping at all then prescriber may switch to methylphenidate, Strattera, Intuniv or any combination. If 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is helpful without adverse effects then prescriber may increase dose until best response as long as no significant adverse effects occur. Best regards for relief. ...Read more
When i take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) why does it take 3 hours for me to feel the effect and when i was on Adderall i felt the effects right away ?
What are the main differences between Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and Adderall? Is it safer for an adult to take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) vs. Adderall ?
How to approach Dr. that my Adderall tolerance has gone up? Been on 60mg daily for 9.5 yrs. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) only one compareable and doesn't work!
That's a pretty high: dose. Talk to your doctor about possibly adding a non-stimulant medication as an adjunct. (S)he may need to make changes in your other psychotropic medications, depending on which non-stimulant is selected. Document the onset & duration of action of your current meds & how/when breakthrough ADHD symptoms impact your daily functioning. Just give your doctor the facts. ...Read more
159lbs when first started vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) after maybe 1 month became 148lbs & 2 weeks later 138lbs after adding adderall. Currently 135lbs. Is this abnormal?
Common, NOT normal: Hi! Vyvanse is a stimulant that is frequently used to treat ADHD as well as over-eating disorders; however, it can cause unintended weight loss also (anorexia). You should discuss with the doctor who prescribed it; they will want to know how much you typically eat each day and whether this has changed since being on the meds. Also things like changes in skin and hair can help with diagnosis. ...Read more
Ran out of adderall not gettin new script till tm, have left over vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) from when i used to be prescribed before i switched, ok for me to take 1 day?
Depends on dose: Adderall is a mixture of amphetamine salts while Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is just one component of Addersll. The general equivalence is 30 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 10 mg of Addersll, 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 20 mg Addersll & 70 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)= 30 mg of Adderall. If you were taking a dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) equivalent to your Adderall you should be safe in the short run. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Delivery form: Both a amphetamine (amp). Adderall is a blend of d-amp (50%) and d, l-amp (50%). Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is called a prodrug: it is d-amp linked to an amino acid. It is inactive till it gets in the body, where an enzyme cleaves the molecule, releasing d-amp. That means a very different release pattern, and it is the longest acting oral stimulant. Some like one, others the other. Both can be effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
