  • Constipation from the drug that the doctor recommended i take
    I am active not overweight and not on any other drugs. Went to the hospital with severe pain ever since nov. 2014 up until 02/2015 i have experienced constipation. Never ever had problems like this since i started this drug. I dont smoke or drink. work out each day and eat before 8 at night. Not to sure what is up.
  • Weed and focalin xr combined experience
    I took a focalin xr 30mg at 8:00 in the morning during school. At break at 11:00 I smoked about 3 bowls of Girl Scout, which is a sativa. I have a huge tolerance to weed because I smoke twice a day. It was enough weed to get me kinda high, but since I was going back to school I didn't want to be trashed. When the two combined I was super hyper and couldn't really feel the weed but it generally takes about 15 minutes for me to feel the weed, and so by the time I get back to school I'm feeling it a little more. When I got back to school I was feeling a insane body high and some lightheadedness. It was a pretty awesome feeling since I could still feel the focalin in my system. This was my first time taking focalin but a week ago I took vyvanse 60 mg and have tried adderall a couple times prior, vyvanse is definitely my favorite though. The feeling peaked for about an hour and half, but once the weed high wore off I was strictly feeling the focalin only. My pupils were super tiny but a week before when I took a vyvanse my pupils were dilated the entire time. My eyes didn't change color though from the weed which might have to do with my tolerance they simply become very glassy. I felt very jittery throughout the day although and my mind was whirling after the weed which I thought would have the opposite effect, and I continued to be hyper until 10ish that night. I also felt very nauseous most the day because I didn't eat much before taking the focalin in the morning, and no urge to eat anything through the day until I smoked where I became mildly hungry. During the peak of the high Imy hands and feet also became fairly numb with a tingling sensation different than when there isn't enough blood reaching it. I wouldn't recommend this if you get bad trips . Although it's not a trippy or particularly hard drug, friends that have tried this have experienced paranoia and aggression.i If you have a little self control and are seeking a different experience than your regular weed high I would say give it a try, just maybe not at school or when you want to study. I'm not very experienced with stimulant pills and this may affect you differently, I don't know this is just my personal experience and I hope this helps
  • Nightmares from miralax
    Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
  • Longterm vyvanse use and myocarditis
    At 19 years old, I suddenly had a heart attack out of no where that left me with chronic myocarditis and pericarditis. I was perfectly healthy, did not use drugs, ate well, and exercised daily. The doctors could not come up with any explanation, but assumed it was an autoimmune disease. Neither heart disease nor autoimmune disease run in my family and the rheumatologist could not find any abnormalities. The only thing that I can come to think that caused this disease for me is taking vyvanse for about 5 years. Since then I have refused to take it, and it took me over a year for my heart to all most fully recover(it will never be fully recovered). I just want to know if there is anyone else out there who have suffered from a similar situation as me.
  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I was originally on adderall and lortab for my adhd and pain. My doctor wanted to get me off lortab, so she switched me to opana, which does not seem to work btw. Not too long after I started to get REALLY depressed and even suicidal. They thought that it could be the adderall so they switched that to vyvanse..but here I am again feeling severely depressed, angry and generally unable to be happy for more than an hours time. I'm beginning to think it's the opana that is causing this reaction. Has this interaction ever been reported?

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I take the following doses of the above listed meds: vyvanse 70mg duloxetine 60mg klonopin 1mg 3xday as needed, levothyroxin 100mcg lamicatal 200 mg. My PCP suspects seratonin syndrome as I have all of the symptoms. Daily, I constantly get an electrical shock feeling in my brain when moving my eyes. Please help me.

    Bethany on Nov, 8, 2014:

    I am 21 female and just graduated college and getting off of vyvanse was the best thing I ever did. No joke. So many problems came from it. Im back on adderral now but if problems persist with adderral try concerta. They will try to give strattera instead but that just makes me tired it doesnt help me focus it just makes me nap. Just my opinion.
