  • 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.
  • 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
  • Syntroid and pruritus
    I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • The zoloft/vyvanse concoction ruined my life.
    I started taking these drugs about two months ago. I am diagnosed ADHD by a psychiatrist. I received these medications from a doctor whom I know and is married to a friend my wife. She, the doctor, gave them to me from her personal medications in a plastic baggy. I was given loose instructions for taking these on a piece of paper. I was never given the paperwork with warning signs. 10 days after starting these medications, I attacked my wife and am now separated. I am barred from seeing her and my daughter by means of a Victims Protective Order. I am a normally nonviolent person. Most who know me call me a peacemaker...a pacifist. I am still horrified by the events of that night. 15 seconds changed my life forever. I hope and pray my story helps others. Don't be naïve, as I was, when given medications. Ask questions.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I've lost 65 lbs and all of my appetite during the last 12 months. I quit taking the Metformin 6 months ago and that hasn't changed anything. I've had a CT Scan and a Gastric Emptying Study done to confirm the diagnosis. I'm having a colonoscopy and an esphogealendoscopy in January to find any further cause of the damage.

  • From this study (3 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.

    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.
