My brother took too much of his Vyvance (ADHD medication) two days ago. He said he was very very anxious and freaking out, but the side effects are gone. But it has been almost 48 hours since he has taken the meds and he says his head feels weird, like mentally. He suffered fom a pretty bad case of depression about 5 years ago, and i am worried this has triggered it again. Can you give me any advise on what he needs to do.

Hi, I ve been taking the ADHD medication Vyvanse since January of this year, and I keep having major issues with excessive sweating from my arm pits. Antiperspirants (over the counter) have not helped at all. It s honestly pretty embarrassing. I was wondering if there is anything else I can do to stop or minimize the sweating?

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The drug that you are taking does not cause excessive sweating. Antiperspirants do not reduce the sweating.

You can only minimize the sweating by wearing light coloured clothes when moving in the sun and trying to stay in a cooler environment.

I hope I have answered...

I have 2 seperate questions 1st question is ... Why is everyone saying on google that taking adderall (the ADHD medication) will come up in a drug test as a methinphetomine? And is it possible it can show up as methinphetomine instead of coming out positive for just amephetomine which is what it is? Are people really reporting cases of this or is this falsified information? Second question is.. I haven t been on birth control in 3 yrs and I haven t had my menstrul cycle in 6-7 months now I was wondering why this could be and if this could have anything to do with why its very hard for me to become pregnant me and my fiancé have been trying for 2yrs now and it s like my cycle is never regular.

Please help me find answers to my questions I m in respirate need of information!!! Thanks

I accidentally took my son's ADHD medication this morning. It's Vyvanse 40mg. I was taking my vitamins and inadvertently pick his pill up as it was sitting on the counter next to mine. Needless to say I won't do that again! I'm flying!!! My heart rate feels ok, I'm 46 physically fit and within a healthy weight range for my height I'm 5'10" and weigh 167lbs. I have a very dry mouth and feel a little "buzzed" should I go to the hospital or just wait it out?

Hello, I have been noticing over the last couple of months that my stool has been a lighter brown and soft, when I wipe, there is a distinct yellow color. I have 3-4 movements a day. I also have bouts of frequent urination. My liquid intake is very good, my urine usually comes out light yellow to clear. Occasionally, I notice a oily substance in my urine, no color, no foul smell. I am on Aderall for ADD/ADHD and eat a huge breakfast in the morning and a med to small dinner, adjusting my diet based on when I am going to have to take my pill with regards to my work schedule. I swing dance regularly and play roller derby. Is this something I need to be worried about?

doctor1 MD

Hi

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Having 3-4 bowel moments can be explained by the ADHD medication you are on. Regarding the color of the stool, I think it is normal.

One of the causes of frequent urination could be drinking large quantities of water. Other common causes of frequent...

My 91/2 year old was spotting blood yesterday and I dont know if its her period or kidney infection or something. She is on ADHD medication and I was told that it could cause her to go into early puberty. She has been breaking out and real irritable for the last few months.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

By what you describe I feel that probably she is going into a premature menarche.
I suggest that you get in touch with a pediatric endocrinologist and evaluate her hormonally.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am a 22yr old female. A few months back I suspected I had ADHD. I have never been formally seen, diagnosed, or treated for this issue. I am a healthcare professional and found that through a friend I could easily accsess the ADHD medication Adderall. I initially saw a huge improvement in productivity, however I have since built up an immense immunity to the drug. I am currently taking 60-80mg daily and I believe I am addicted to this drug. If I withdrawl or attempt to ween myself from Adderall I go into almost a comatose state. I have previously slept an uninterupted 36 once due to lack of Adderall. I have made an appt. with a psychiatrist next month my question is what do I say to him to get the help I need. Do I state what I have just said above? Do I use what I medically know to get myself offically prescribe to an ADHD med? If I tell him the truth what actions will he take in order to help me cope with the withdrawl?
