Getting headaches after taking vyvanse, lithium and lamictol. Side effect?

I have recently started getting very bad headaches on vyvanse. I'm confused by this seeing as it isn't even listed as a side effect on their main website. I also take lithium, lamictol, and valacyclovir. I had stopped taking the valacyclovir a week prior to the headaches but have a hard time believing they were caused by that. Any tips?

Hi there, thanks for asking. Headaches could be related to vyvance. If it is so, in most of the cases it is treated with lowering the dose. On the other hand, you should ask your doctor to see if you really need three medications for your brain. Lithium, Lamotrigine and Vyvance are three medications which are not usually given in one person specially if she/ he is adult. You can ask your doctor to see how much you can decrease the dose of vyvance while having a good concentration. I wish you a good health.
