Side effects

Vyvanse can remain active in the body for up to 14 hours. If side effects persist, speak to a doctor.

People taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine should not take Vyvanse because they could experience a dangerous drug interaction. Similarly, people with certain health problems or family history of heart disease should not use this medication. Sudden death and stroke have been reported in adults with structural cardiac abnormalities and other serious heart problems who took CNS stimulants at recommended doses.

Headaches are a common side effect of this medication, but over-the-counter painkillers such as Tylenol can help relieve them. Tell your doctor if you have a history of mental health issues or a family history of depression, bipolar disorder, or suicide.

You should not share Vyvanse with others, as it can lead to drug misuse and physical dependence. It is illegal to sell or give this medication to someone else. Store it in a secure location where children cannot reach it.

Vyvanse is available in capsule and chewable tablet forms. It is usually taken once daily in the morning. It is not recommended to take this medication later in the day or evening as it can interfere with sleep. Your doctor will determine the right dosage for you or your child. They may start you on a low dosage and increase it over time to get the best results.

The FDA has a boxed warning for this medication that indicates a risk of misuse, abuse, and dependence. Always take this medication as directed by your doctor and do not share it with other people, even if they have the same symptoms you do. It is illegal to sell or give this medication away.

If you or your child have trouble swallowing Vyvanse capsules, you can open the capsule and pour the powder into a soft food such as yogurt, water, or orange juice. Stir the mixture well and consume it immediately afterward. Do not store the liquid.

Vyvanse is a central nervous system stimulant with the potential for abuse. This is especially true when it is taken outside of its prescribed dosage range. It is also a drug that can interact dangerously with alcohol or other medications.

Unlike immediate release amphetamines, Vyvanse is absorbed slowly in the digestive tract and enters the bloodstream. Once in the blood, it’s cleaved by red blood cells to become dextroamphetamine, which is then active. This slow release mechanism gives the drug an advantage over its immediate-release counterparts: it doesn’t cause the sudden crashes in focus, energy and mood that many patients experience with other stimulants.

Another way that Vyvanse differs from other amphetamines is that it has a lower tolerance, meaning larger doses are needed over time to produce the same effect. This can lead to a dangerous overdose, which may result in seizures, coma or death. A fatal overdose of Vyvanse can be very hard to distinguish from other types of overdose because the symptoms are similar: restlessness, hyperactive reflexes, anxiety, confusion and hallucinations.

Vyvanse may be habit-forming. Never share this medication with another person, especially someone with a history of drug abuse or addiction. This medicine can cause dizziness and drowsiness. It is dangerous to drive or operate machinery after taking this drug. Alcohol can make these side effects worse. This medication should be stored in a secure place where children cannot reach it. Store it at room temperature away from heat and moisture. Do not flush this medication down the toilet or pour it into a drain unless instructed to do so by your doctor. Contact your local waste disposal company for instructions.

Do not take this medicine if you have ever taken isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, or tranylcypromine in the past 14 days. This medicine interacts with these medications and can lead to a serious condition called serotonin syndrome. Also tell your doctor if you have a history of mental health problems or family history of suicide, bipolar disorder, depression, or other mental illness. This medication passes into breast milk and may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Talk to your doctor before breastfeeding.vyvanse 40 mg capsule
