Only alcohol: Alcohol is the only "food" drug interactions listed at www. Drugs. Com. Some blogs list caffeine, antacids, vitamin c within four hours of taking it, but other than the caffeine I doubt the blog postings are correct. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am taking 50mg vyvanse for anxiety/adult adhd. 5 mg abilify (aripiprazole) was added to control panic attacks. How do they work together /possible side effects?

I am taking 50mg vyvanse for anxiety/adult adhd. 5 mg abilify (aripiprazole) was added to control panic attacks. How do they work together /possible side effects?

Can Be OK Together: There are no real concerns about using these two medicines together. However, Abilify (aripiprazole) can sometimes cause drowsiness, which could affect your focus/concentration. Also, keep in mind that Vyvanse can sometimes cause increased anxiety. If you are needing additional treatment for anxiety/panic, you would want to talk with your provider about whether Vyvanse is adding to the anxiety. ...Read more

Vyvnase: Or lisdexamfetamine, as other drugs used to treat ADHD or ADD, rather a CNS stimulant, sounds strange, and paradoxical, no one knows exactly how those drugs work, the most accepted theory or postulate, is that it stimulates certain centers in the CNS responsible for attention, hence treats "attention deficiency" shouldn't be used without doctor's supervision, high abuse potential, controll ...Read more

If I am 32 and 123 pounds what mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is good for being adhd?

Body size and shape: These variables don't really matter for stimulant medication. It matters more how fast (trial and error) you metabolize the medication without side effects. Ask your doctor to try different levels of the medication, More is not necessarily better or more effective. You may feel more focused on lower doses. ...Read more

I have adhd, and I take Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) every morning, and I just accidentally took another one just now. What should I do?

Watchful waiting: You should be fine with just taking 1 extra pill in a 24 hour period. If you want to be extra safe, you could eat some bread, drink a few glasses of milk and increase your fluids in general. But truly, you should be fine. Just do not make a habit of it and develop some process to remind you to take the pills as prescribed. Best wishes. ...Read more

What to do if I have never been diagnosed with ADHD but I took a 70mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and it only got me to concentrate for 4 hrs?

What to do if I have never been diagnosed with ADHD but I took a 70mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and it only got me to concentrate for 4 hrs?

Get tested: Most people need to know the severity of symptoms and strategies for management, so testing helps with that. Also, starting at 70mg of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is dangerous. Work with a psychiatrist to find the optimal dose and the best medication for you. It may not be vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Will ADHD meds such as Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) also help me manage anxiey and help me feel happier and content inside?

Will ADHD meds such as Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) also help me manage anxiey and help me feel happier and content inside?

Not usually: Stimulants usually help with attention and organization. In fact I will make sure patients are treated for anxiety before starting stimulants as stimulants can make anxiety worse.

I see you are taking wellbutrin (bupropion) which is more likely to help with anxiety and/or depression.

I applaud you on including behavioral therapy as one of your treatments. I wish you well. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I take cold meds with 140mg of vyvanse? Was diagnosed with adult ADHD almost 2 years ago. I have been taking Vyvanse 70 mgs the whole time I've been treating my adhd. I started at the lowest dosage and have been taking 70mg once daily for about a year

Two questions: How did you get to 140 mg a day of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)? That's a lot and a big jump from 70 mg. Some cold medicines also have stimulant-like medications in them. Check with your doctor or look on line for interactions between your favorite cold medicine and vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Also, seriously relook at what vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is doing; if you need that much, it may not be the best drug for you. ...Read more

Re-starting Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) dosing goes more by clinical response than by weight. If you've done well on a certain dose in the past, restarting that dose would be reasonable and then possibly increase as doctor recommended. A treatment plan should also include behavioral strategies and possible school accommodations to help you focus. I hope this helps. All the best. ...Read more
