Vyvanse Side Effects

Vyvanse  as one of the classes of psychostimulants technically fits in the amphetamine group of drugs -much like Ritalin, Daytrana and Equasym are. With the only difference being is it a lisdexamphetamine.

Lisdexamfetamine is used for:

Treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used to treat binge eating disorder (BED). It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Lisdexamfetamine is an amphetamine. Exactly how lisdexamfetamine works is not known. It affects certain chemicals in the brain that may help improve attention span and behavior.

Do NOT use lisdexamfetamine if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in lisdexamfetamine or to similar medicines
  • you have severe hardening of the arteries; active heart or blood vessel disease; moderate, severe, or uncontrolled high blood pressure; an overactive thyroid; glaucoma; or agitation, anxiety, or tension
  • you have serious heart problems (eg, heart defect, irregular heartbeat)

Sadly. Neither your doctors, health professionals or pharmacist are going to go to any lengths in ensuring you KNOW the complete side effects of the “meds” they are prescribing and selling you.

In this day and age. It is really up to YOU. To take full responsibility for your own health. By getting as fully informed about the disease you are facing.

The available medical treatments. Traditional and non-traditional. Thereby being in a position that is the BEST to making the most appropriate one when you are being prescribed Vyvanse or you have the responsibility of looking after the well-being of a child, parent or loved one who is being prescribed Vyvanse for any health “treatment.”
