Vyvanse Depression

The below is a comment submission I received from a reader named Nicky. I think Nicky is a lesbian because she says she is a waitress and has a girlfriend, but it really doesn’t matter. Her words/thoughts, however do. Nicky shares her personal opinion about the depression she experienced while on Vyvanse. This is a must read for anyone comparing vyvanse vs adderall.

“I’ve been prescribed adderall for years and don't know what I would do without it. However, dealing with the associated anxiety and comedowns is exhausting. When I heard about vyvanse from my doctor, she prescribed it for me and I hoped that it would solve my problems. I take one 20mg IR and then another several hours later, so she gave me 30mg of vyvanse. I was loving it for about 2 weeks.

I felt the similar effects of adderall but could tell that the vyvanse was a lot smoother. I was having a hard time with insomnia though; much different that adderall. I didn't have racing thoughts, but just couldn't sleep. I figured that my body just needed to adjust to the new drug.


Depression, a Common Side Effect of the Adderall Crash?

Recently, I’ve been receiving more questions about the common side-effects of the adderall crash, particularly asking about depression.

If you’ve ever pushed yourself to the limits on adderall you know what I’m talking about when I say, “adderall crash.”

If you’re one of the many people who have difficulty dealing with the crash, I suggest you read my blog post with helpful hints on surviving the crash.

Adderall Crash - How to Deal with the Crash

I wanted to answer this question as a blog post and share with my readers my experience with the crash -- I feel it’s important for other people who take adderall or other ADHD prescription drugs to learn that they are not alone when certain feelings that he or she may not normally feel arise when coming off adderall.

Subject: adderall crash

Message: Hi, I was wondering if depression is a common side effect of adderallcrash. I have found I have this issue only after stopping it or decreasing my dose, and I will either experience the common side of effect of increased anger or depression. Do anti-depressants help fend this off? Thanks!
