Can a low dosage of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause miscarriage?

Can a low dosage of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause miscarriage?

Probably not: 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.
In my practice, in my reading of the research, about one fifth of pregnancies end in miscarriage, so it's very difficult to tell what the causes are. Talk to your OB. ...Read more

Does geodon, (ziprasidone) saphriss, bursporine, or Vyvanse cause infertility?

Does geodon, (ziprasidone) saphriss, bursporine, or 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

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?

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?

Need to stop: That is too much of a blood pressure rise to be considered acceptable side effect. 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

My Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) caused high BP symptoms last two days, but BP was 130/90 (not bad.) only thing that changed was the addition of l-tyrosine @ 500 mg. First 5 days were fine. What changed?

Metabolic interactio: 32 yo female using vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) for narcolepsy & depression. I assume you have read the long list of serious potential adverse effects of this drug.

For the experts - might Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) effect my blood alcohol level?

For the experts - might Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) effect my blood alcohol level?

No, not directly.: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can increase some digestive and metabolic processes, but it is not likely to have a significant effect on the blood alcohol level. Due to enhanced alertness, some may feel less impaired/sedated by the effects of alcohol, but this is illusionary -- excessive alcohol intake will be just as problematic. In fact, it may be worse since the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) may impart a sense of misplaced confidence. ...Read more
