What are the side effects of vyvanse ?

Can vyvanse cause slipping ribs and rib pain? I took it for years with terrible subluxations and pain happening...muscle spasms...I decided to go off of it and within a week all of my rib pain and back pain went away. I m only left with the muscle weakness from the spasms. I am convinced that vyvanse is dangerous. I used to have to use a foam roller to pop the rib heads where they met at my spine in my back and now all of a sudden there s no vyvanse and they re magically better. I don t want to go back on it if its causing my problems. I also am extremely concerned that if a drug can either directly or indirectly cause such debilitating pain then why would it be on the market?

DEAR DANIEL,
HI I AM DR.KAVITHA.I WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU.
VYANSE(LISDEXAMPHETAMINE) IS A DRUG THAT CAN GIVE YOU PROBLEMS IF YOU STOP IT SUDDENLY ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN USING IT REGULARLY .
I MUST ADVICE YOU TO MEET THE DOCTOR WHO PRESCRIBED IT TO YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE AND GRADUALLY REDUCE THE DOSE AND STOP IT IF YOU REALLLY DONT WANT TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.
YOU CAN TALK TO HIM ABOUT YOUR SPASMS AND ALSO FIND OUT IF SUCH A SIDE EFFECT IS COMMON IN OTHER PATIENTS. A SINGLE CONSULTATION WILLL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS.
HE CAN RECOMMEND BETTER AND NEWER DRUGS THAT HAVE COME IN THE MARKET WHICH WORKS SIMILAR TO VYANSE.
SO PLEASE DONT WASTE ANYMORE TIME AND PLEASE RESTART YOUR VYANSE UNTILL YOU MEET THE DOCTOR.
BYE TAKE CARE.
