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.

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

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.

Just do not make a habit of it and develop some process to remind you to take the pills as prescribed. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I applaud you on including behavioral therapy as one of your treatments. I wish you well. Good luck. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
