Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I am on 40 mg of Vyvanse . I noticed lately the following issues
    If I am in a calm environment , I feel fine but notice I feeling of being normal when I first take it for 2-3 hours and somewhere around the 5-6 hour after taking it, I start to crash and get very impatient with my children if they are interrupting me (I work from home). I am also noticing that my emotions are very hyper sensitive. If I am sad, because of something that has upset me i can cry and fall apart. Further if someone is raging with me I get very short/snappy with them. People are staring to tell me it is since I have been on Vyvanse. Do keep in mind, I have custody of my two teenage kids full-time, work from home and high-pressure sales job. I recently got married to a wonderful man, who is very calm and supportive but travels for work extensively. Can this be just a case of life being very challenging at times? Perhaps the meds are not lasting long enough and need a higher dose? or not a good fit for me. I am hoping you can help me answer these questions.

  • I feel socially awkward and have low self esteem. I am unable to connect with other people. This was brought about the same time I started taking Vyvanse and Ritalin. I have been diagnosed with and treated for depression in the past.
