  • 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.
  • Respiridone causes hyper activity
    My 7yr old is taking intuniv in the AM and respiridone @ pm but it makes run around crazy like a boost of energy
  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
  • Sinuses and lamictal
    Have been having painful problems with sinuses, focal seizures have increased along with lapses of consciousness. Had the doctor take blood levels. They are normal, but feeling like this is not. Am wondering if the strange weather isn't a factor - as there is a constant fluctuation of the air pressure. Has anyone had similar problems. Would love to hear from you

  • 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.

    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.

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • For the last 20-30 years I go through cycles where I am just too lethargic to function. I suffer from severe brain fog, lack of direction, sleep way too much, and am in an almost vegetative state and this could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few years. I do not believe it to be depression as I do not feel depressed. I feel unwell and quite often experience low grade fevers. I also have hemochromatosis and thyroid nodules, as well as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder and AV Nodal Re-entrant Tachycardia
