 4  ADHD Dry mouth, some jaw clenching, extremely increased sex drive, some sleep deprivation. I don't have the sexual frustration until it starts to wear off, and it's extreme! I can't focus on anything else, and it drives me crazy! I have have thought about stopping the medication because of how aggravating it is, but I need it and I love it other then this feeling. Dry mouth is no problem bc I know I need water. I take melatonin to help with my sleep and 20 mg cylexa that is supposed to help with the hypersexual problem, but it hasn't made it go away!

 5  ADHD Occasional insomnia, dry mouth I was not diagnosed with ADHD until adulthood. I tried concerta before trying vyvanse, and was nervous about trying vyvanse after my experience with concerta. But it was such a life changing thing for me. I suddenly started understanding how neurotypical people managed to do so many things. My anxiety decreased, my memory improved, my productivity increased. I have to take it before 7:30 in order for it not to affect my sleep, but it's so so worth it. F 38 6 months

 1  ADHD Depression, Personality loss, Zombie like state of mind, anxiety, Depression, Appetite issues, stomach problems, constant suicidal idealation, shakiness, This drug almost made me kill myself. Please do not ever take it. Legal meth is not the answer please trust me.Some kids weren't born to sit in a classroom for 8 hours a day and four hours of homework and you shouldn't have to destroy your life by taking METH in order to achieve that. Almost every aspect of my life was negatively impacted by this drug except for productivity, which doesn't get you very far when you're constantly depressed/not trying to kill yourself. M 18 9 months

 4  ADHD Severe lack of appetite, lack of interest in caffeine which I was previously addicted to, insomnia if taken too late in the day, increased focus and interest in hobbies and school, lack of tiredness during the day. Severe nausea dizziness and tiredness if two or more days are missed, it is very very bad to the point that i can't go to school or work. Nausea if not taken with food. I originally started taking vyvanse for ADHD which it has greatly helped, however it has also helped me lose weight. I lost six pounds my first two weeks on it and have in total lost around 15 pounds since being on it without trying to, (the previous six months I had purposefully lost around 25 pounds). I have a BED which it helps, however I also have a restrictive disorder which it harms. I have to force myself to eat and forget if my mother doesn't remind me, it has brought me to tears in the past because it physically pains me to eat sometimes. I do not recommend this medication if you have or had an eating disorder, I was almost fully in recovery when I started this medication and it has made me regress. Objectively the pros and cons are the same for me, but I suggest exploring other options if they are available to you. Also if you are on the medication and struggling to eat I suggest a drink like breakfast essentials to get calories and it is easy to drink quickly to have something in your system. F 17 4.5 months

 5  BED I have been on Vyvanse for only a month. I was prescribed 30mg to start. 30mg worked for me for the first two weeks. After that it stopped working. I increased the dosage to 40mg. One-month Pros: * Throughout the day, food isn't my first or only thought. * Reduced appetite. * I can feel when I've had enough to eat. * My first two weeks I lost 6lbs. * Though I typically have a hard time falling asleep, the side effect of insomnia did not worsen. * Concentration. My ability to concentrate is amazingly better. One-month Cons: * My arms and legs have become itchier. * Dry mouth. * I already have dizziness, Vyvanse does not seem to affect it any more than usual. * Irritability. This only lasted for about a day or two. * Upper stomach pain. Only lasted for about 1 week and was tolerable. ** I did NOT research about alcohol and this drug before taking it. Due to the character limit, please watch videos about this. F 35 1 months

 4  ADHD Dry mouth This has been the best medication for me so far and I have tried them all. I do not experience the drastic drop in productivity when the medication wears off. The "wear off" is more gradual than other meds. Some days I experience jaw clenching and on those days I also tend to have ocd symptoms . F 61 7 years

 3  ADHD Fidgeting, shakiness I was prescribed the lowest dosage of Vyvanse to treat my ADHD. My ADHD symptoms effect my performance at work and school. I feel like my ADHD runs my life and I hate it. I reported my symptoms to my healthcare provider after breaking down, feeling helpless all because of being ADHD, my symptoms becoming unmanageable, and received treatment for it. I can sit thru a movie without becoming distracted with other priorities, pay attention to the other person when having a conversation, complete my job and school responsibilities on time, complete household tasks within a reasonable amount of time. My ADHD slows me down some days, and effects my work performance and relationships the most! Vyvanse helped manage my ADHD symptoms and if it wasn't for the negative feedback I have received about the med, I would be satisfied with it. F 32 30 days

 5  ADHD Decreased appetite that wears off by mid afternoon when taken around 7 AM, occasionally a thick mucus feeling in the back of my throat that feels better with warm tea or cough drops. Nausea in afternoon when taken without food. It helped to greatly reduce my anxiety caused by ADHD. I've found it works best for me when taken with food, as when I don't I tend to get nauseous in the afternoon. My personality isn't dulled and neither is my creativity. I feel really glad I have access to this medication. F 26 2 years

 1  ADHD I have been taking vyvanse since I was 6. I have always been having trouble focusing in class and now that I'm 14 I can no longer feel any hunger. There has been times where I haven't ate for almost a week and its all because I cant tell if I'm hungry while taking vyvanse. At night I cant sleep until almost 4 am. Ill have stomach pains and have horrible migraines. When I stand up I feel like I'm about to pass out. I have to immediately sit back down. I have had 2 concussions from passing out. From having concussions I have more memory problems and have trouble doing tasks. Do not take vyvanse. It makes me feel horrible and the side effects are not worth it. I feel like someone is constantly stabbing me with a knife in my stomach and have to force myself to eat. Im pretty sure its going to kill me one of these days. M 14 8 years

 1  ADHD I HATE IT. I can never sleep at night. I have to force myself to eat otherwise I will end up with a horrible migraine and feeling like I'm about to pass out. I cant focus because of the constant stomach pains and causes me to fail my classes at school. I highly recommend staying away from vyvanse. The side effects are horrible and make life miserable.

 3  ADHD Loss of emotion, mild depression, loss of appetite, tiredness, whenever a day is missed an emotional outburst occurs. I feel vyvanse prevents me from feeling happy in life it makes me feel really sad or bored all the time and it's getting really annoying, I notice that when I've taken it I don't want to eat and I have to force myself to eat, it doesn't feel like eating just chewing and swallowing. Whenever I miss an everyday routine of taking it I have an emotional outburst and I start crying for no reason and start having a mental breakdown and I'm sick and tired of people telling me that I'm just a teenager and it's the hormones because it's not I notice the meds keep me from feeling and it bottles up my emotions against my will.

 5  ADD all very minor: increased craving for sugar, dehydration if I don't stay on top of water consumption. This drug has been a miracle for me. I do not experience any negative side effects. My libido has returned, I feel a lot calmer, less anxious and less depressed, I never think about dying anymore, easier to focus, actually interested in movement/exercise, way less irritable or impatient, and my self-esteem increased immediately upon taking it (used to be super low.) I also do not over-eat all the time anymore. F 25 3 months
 5  ADHD Vyvanse has really helped me over the years. I haven't experienced a lack of sleep, and my appetite completely went away but I've been working to get it back. Just have to remind myself to eat. However, if I don't take my vyvanse I am extremely sluggish and tired and can hardly get out of bed. F 19 2 years

 4  ADHD Tense jaw and shoulders, less blood circulation in feet, dry mouth, stomach pain Mental images are a lot more clearer, reaction speed seems twice as fast, music sounds better, I can focus on tasks while talking to people, happier person in general. If you take any antihistamines look up if it is compatible with Vyvanse or you may risk having very negative side effects such as my case where I took Polaramine before immunotherapy and a day later experienced symptoms comparable to a psychotic episode (Paranoia, hearing footsteps, figments in peripheral) Overall, In my experience, if I eat food high in protein and get enough sleep before taking Vyvanse I don't feel any adverse side effects throughout the day.

 4  ADHD / Social Anxiety Dry mouth, appetite suppression, mild euphoria, erratic and elevated heart rate. I like the medication and feel it has helped in many positive ways but I am concerned about how it is effecting my cardiovascular system. I'm a lifelong at athlete. I regularly swim, bike and run long distances. Before Vyvanse my resting heart rate would be 47-52, now it is elevated. More concerning is my heart rate can rocket to 130+ bpm just walking up one flight of stairs. For me 130+ bpm should be when I am out running down the road at 8:45 min per mile clip not walking up some stairs. I've got an appointment with a cardiologist and I am going to let them guide me. If they say "no go" on Vyvanse that would suck but I'd rather have social anxiety then a fried heart. M 40 30 days

VYVANSE  (LISDEXAMFETAMINE DIMESYLATE):  Lisdexamfetamine is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as part of a total treatment plan, including psychological, social, and other treatments. It may help to increase the ability to pay attention, stay focused, and stop fidgeting. Lisdexamfetamine may also be used to treat binge eating disorder (BED). It may help to reduce the number of binge eating days. This medication is a stimulant. It is thought to work by restoring the balance of certain natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain. This medication is not recommended for use for weight loss due to the risk of serious side effects.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
