FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: VYVANSE

User Comments:


“I have been suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia for many years. I also have some attention deficit problems and sleep problems. My pain level ranged from 5 to 8 to 10 and can be very debilitating. I began Vyvanse 10 and 20 mg. Since I began Vyvanse, I almost could go without pain medicine. I am much able to complete tasks, I have energy, and no pain. I also sleep much more. If I take the 20mg pills every day, I get anxious and a little too energetic. So, I take days off the medication. The only draw back is that you get really sleepy when you stop taking the medication. So it’s tricky.”

For ADHD “After months of going back and forth between Adderall XR 30mg (x2/day) and Vyvanse 70mg (once daily). I realized that Vyvanse works the best for me. It keeps me at the perfect, consistent level all day. I’m focused, complete multiple tasks at a time, without my anxiety going through the roof.”

For ADHD “I started taking vyvanse around 4th grade and I noticed that it helped a lot but I couldn’t eat and when I would come home I wouldn’t have the energy to do anything but sleep.”

For ADHD “Has kept me balanced, focused and energized with no noticeable decrease in efficacy at 40mg every day for over four years. I have skipped a day occasionally, and took a week off to test myself for lethargy or depressed feelings, and felt very little change in mood.”

For ADHD “I’ve been on it for over 5 years now (started in high school, now in college). It was a little rough at first, but once my weight stabilized I noticed no issues. NEVER. EVER. TAKE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH! I learned the hard way early on.”

For Binge Eating Disorder “For 23 yrs, I tried everything to fix my severe BED/bulimia. Diets, OA, therapy, CBT, DBT, Meds, hospitals. Nothing helped. Heard about this and was VERY skeptical but after years trying to fix it on my own, actively suicidal and daily ED for hours, so try this, or kill myself. I started 30mg and was stunned! The obsession with food was lifted on day 1. I had some side effects but tapered off. I lost weight; however, that is secondary to the fact that I don’t hate myself or want to die anymore. I am now up to 60mg and if the meds become ineffective, my doc and I will discuss then. I’m hoping to build better habits/coping so in 12-18 mths, I may not need them anymore. This isn’t for weight loss. It’s to be free from the obsession with food and subsequent behaviours that controlled my life. Yes the meds are expensive; however, still less than the $$ I was spending monthly on binges. I am free (future obviously undetermined) and couldn’t be happier about it.”
