- 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.
- 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.
- Vyvanse for aspergers / autism and adhd working well
Glad our child's condition was properly diagnosed and now is treated with this medication. Had to go to a team of experts to get the right diagnosis of Aspergers with ADHD, impulsive type. I'm sharing this in hopes some others will be consider a medication that can possibly help.
- High triglyceride reading
After 6 months of taking vyvanse my triglyceride levels went from 97 to 415.
- Flagyl and hair loss
I was miserable already but the side effects of this medicine only compounded it. I have had severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and worst of all I have patches of hair that have completely fallen out!! I am horrified that this medicine is even prescribed to people if these side effects are profound. I will be calling my dr for a new antibiotic, and I will NEVER take this "medicine" again!
