  • What symptoms do people experience from Vyvanse withdrawal?
Patients who take Vyvanse should be warned that this drug does come with a warning label which indicates that there have not been adequate studies to establish whether or not there is a serious medical risk for patients taking Vyvanse. It is unlikely that they will cause serious side effects but there is the possibility that extremely adverse reactions could appear, even years after taking the drug, and scientists and medical professionals cannot rule out the possibility of death from taking this drug.

Vyvanse is an amphetamine so there is a high chance that patients prescribed the drug can become addictive and suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms. Some of the symptoms can include anxiety, extreme agitation and insomnia. More serious symptoms include psychotic episodes such as extreme paranoia.

  • Side effects
There are also some common side effects that patients often suffer from whilst taking the drug. These include an extremely dry mouth that can cause discomfort and a loss of appetite. Headaches and insomnia are common as well as anxiety and irritability.

  • What is Vyvanse?
Vyvanse is a drug commonly used to treat ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a stimulant that controls the central nervous system by controlling them chemicals in the brain which are thought to lead to the disorder. The drug is used for both adults and children over the age of 6 and has been found to be particularly useful. The reason the drug is not used in children is that there have not been enough tests to establish whether or not the drug has any serious side effects in later life for children under 6.

I recently had to abruptly stop taking Vyvanse, as I am not sure if the pharmacist put all of the medication in the bottle, I was missing exactly about 15 (should have been 30 pills). Sounds strange, but I never count medication, if I hear the bottle shake with pills, I don't think about it at all. Of course, it is a controlled substance, so I could not get a new script filled until the month was up. I was taking 40mgs. I experienced a severe migraine, and was in the er a few days later. I experienced fatigue, nasua, vomiting as well. I am prone to migraines, but vomiting, was a new symptom.

I have ADD, and was on 40 mg daily. When I stopped taking it, i
noticed long term effects more than I did short term, even though I
stopped taking it abruptly.

I'm not sure if this is common with
everybody, but I started to feel very lazy, as if I had a caffeine
withdrawal effect. It has lasted so far, a month.
