  • Any experience or studies of vyvance (lisdexamfetamine) causing vit b12 absorbsion issues and ultimately deficiency? (2 answers)
    Taking Vyvance for about 12 months and just been diagnosed with Pernicious Anaemia and Vit B12 deficiency. Symptoms triggering B12/Intrisic factor tests was extreme fatigue and foul mood during a menstrual cycle.
    Looking to see if anyone else has a similar issue or any knowledge of Vyvance causing any issue with absorption by either altering the bacteria or proteins in the stomach.
    I've had the loading dose of 6 B12 jags (every 2 days) the last a week ago and although I pick up a bit in the evening I am still exhausted in the morning and most of the day. Thanks

  • Sublingual b12 & insomnia
    Approx 8 months ago I began taking 500 mg sublingual B12 in the am. I actually feel more energized (real or imagined?) but, I have also begun experiencing severe insomnia. I go to sleep easily but get up around 3 times a night. This interrupted sleep is a killer. Any suggestions will be appreciated
  • Pain meds that cause insomnia
    I currently take 7.5 mg of Vicoprofen for pain for my Anklyosing Spondylitis. I have tried Vicodin and Norco previously, but nothing worked as well as the Vicoprofen. I have never had to up my dosage and I am still getting the same level of relief as I was when I first started it over a year and a half ago. I swear by the Vicoprofen and would recommend it to anyone who has any type of related pain, but, there is one downfall. Every time I take my pain meds I get a huge burst of energy. My pain is usually worst at night, so I have no choice but to take it before bed. More times than not it causes me to suffer extreme insomnia, which is no fun. Up until recently I just suffered through it. I went and saw my primary today and told her about the issues and she suggested I try Trazodone to help ease my mind so I can fall asleep easier and faster. I'm really hoping it works because I don't want to have to switch pain meds because they work so well, but I can't go much longer only getting 2-3 hours of sleep during the week.
    I will wrote another review in a week or so regarding my experience taking the Trazodone with the Vicoprofen.
  • 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
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I've previously been on both Adderall and Phentermine, at different times. I experienced very drastic and noticeable effectiveness. The phentermine helped with weight loss significantly and the Adderall greatly increased my energy levels, self-confidence, elevated mood, and higher concentration and brain activity. I was not on any other medications at the time, though I did need to take melatonin occasionally to help me sleep. Now, I had not been on Adderall or phentermine for about a year, but I was put on Adderall again several months ago. This was about a month after my brother died, so obviously I was experiencing (and still am) grief and depression. I was put on 40mg (twice as much as I used to be on) of Adderall in addition to seroquel XR and Lamictal. I felt like a slug all the time, I felt physically hungrier, and lethargic and apathetic. The adderall did nothing to help these symptoms. I am now on 60mg of Adderall and 37.5mg of Phentermine for weight loss and neither have shown any affectiveness, mentally or physically. My appetite is just as bad, and my brain isn't functioning fast at all. None of the affects of adderall I used to experiences, like increased energy levels, elevated mood, decreased appetite, increased brain activity, and increased self-confidence are present now, and I'm on more adderall than I was on before AND phentermine at the same time!! What's going on?? Both my ADD and weight gain are causing me to become increasingly self-conscious and depressed. Also, it doesn't help that my ridiculous amount of mood stabilizers make me apathetic and detached. I'm under 18 so I'm required to take the medications prescribed to me, but I don't know what to do or why the stimulants aren't effective anymore. HELP!!

    Just saying but u must have been taking vyvanse instead of adderall because the highest mg of adderall is 30mg. If u were taking 40mg and 60mg u must have been taking vyvanse which goes all the way up to 100mg
