Adderall & Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): Both meds have been associated with muscle spasm & muscle twitching, which can cause pain in the affected areas. Discuss this side effect with prescribing doc for possible change of med or other resolution to problem.

No effect: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) will not directly effect your thyroid. But if you're hyperthyroid, you might have symptoms that vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can aggravate -- like jitteriness, anxiety, etc.

Hello docs. I was wondering can Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause a shortened a pr interval?

Hello docs. I was wondering can Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause a shortened a pr interval?

Studies have not: Demonstrated that vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can cause a shortened pr interval. However, anyone may have a reaction that is unique to them or idiosyncratic.

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.

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.

I have a 9yr old with PDDnos&ADHA who has been struggling with anger more so since he switch to Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). could it be the cause?

I have a 9yr old with PDDnos&ADHA who has been struggling with anger more so since he switch to Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). could it be the cause?

Yes: Different medications can precipitate mood changes or cause adverse effects. I would tell your doctor right away about the anger issues and find out what he/she recommends. Sometimes time can help but if the symptoms are severe then the medication may need to be switched sooner rather than later.

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.

Thrice the maxi-: Mum recommended adult dose/24 hrs. Is an overdose & the dosing schedule is bizarre, unless you work nights. AMPH are not prescribed on a mg/kg/day basis, even in kids, though there are limits for maximum safe doses. Medical complications of obesity ^ risk of heart attack or stroke from AMPH OD. Please discuss getting healthy with your PCP, cardiologist, psychiatrist & psychologist.

Can Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause false negatives on pregnancy tests?

Not likely.: This is not a known problem with vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). But regardless of what meds you or are not taking, it's a good idea to repeat any lab test (particularly tests done at home)that you suspect as inaccurate. Also, if you are trying to get pregnant or not effectively blocking conception, I suggest you stop the vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine), along with almost all other medications that have not been specifically "ok'd" by your ob.
