Vyvanse Information:

Why is this medication prescribed?

Lisdexamfetamine is used as part of a treatment program to control symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; more difficulty focusing, controlling actions, and remaining still or quiet than other people who are the same age) in adults and children. Lisdexamfetamine is in a class of medications called central nervous system stimulants. It works by changing the amounts of certain natural substances in the brain.

How should this medicine be used?

Lisdexamfetamine comes as a capsule to be taken by mouth. It is usually taken once a day in the morning with or without food. Take lisdexamfetamine at around the same time every day. Do not take lisdexamfetamine in the late afternoon or evening because it may cause difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take lisdexamfetamine exactly as directed.

You may swallow the capsule whole, or you may open the capsule, sprinkle the entire contents into a glass of water, and stir to dissolve. Drink the mixture right away. Do not store the mixture for future use, and do not divide the contents of one capsule into more than one dose.

Your doctor will probably start you on a low dose of lisdexamfetamine and increase your dose gradually, not more often than once every week.Your doctor may decrease your dose if you experience unpleasant side effects.

Your doctor may tell you to stop taking lisdexamfetamine from time to time to see if the medication is still needed. Follow these directions carefully.

Other uses for this medicine

This medication may be prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

What special precautions should I follow?

Before taking lisdexamfetamine,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to lisdexamfetamine; other stimulant medications such as amphetamine (in Adderall), benzphetamine (Didrex), dextroamphetamine (in Adderall, Dexedrine, Dextrostat), methamphetamine (Desoxyn); any other medications, or any of the ingredients in lisdexamfetamine capsules. Ask your doctor or pharmacist or check the manufacturer's information for a list of the ingredients.
  • tell your doctor if you are taking a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam, Zelapar), and tranylcypromine (Parnate), or if you have stopped taking one of these medications during the past 14 days. Your doctor will probably tell you not to take lisdexamfetamine until at least 14 days have passed since you last took an MAO inhibitor.
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what other prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking. Be sure to mention any of the following: alpha blockers such as alfuzosin (Uroxatral), doxazosin (Cardura), prazosin (Minipress), tamsulosin (Flomax), and terazosin (Hytrin); antidepressants ('mood elevators') such as desipramine and protriptyline; antihistamines (medications for colds and allergies); beta blockers such as atenolol (Tenormin), labetalol (Normodyne), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL), nadolol (Corgard), and propranolol (Inderal); diuretics ('water pills') such as acetazolamide (Diamox); lithium (Lithobid, Eskalith); narcotic medications for pain; other medications for ADHD; medications for asthma, colds, and high blood pressure; medications for mental illness such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine) and haloperidol (Haldol); certain medications for seizures such as ethosuximide (Zarontin), phenobarbital, and phenytoin (Dilantin); meperidine (Demerol); methenamine (Hiprex, Urex); propoxyphene (Darvon, Darvon-N); and sodium phosphate (OsmoPrep, Visicol). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
  • tell your doctor if you have or have ever had glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye that may cause vision loss), hyperthyroidism (condition in which there is too much thyroid hormone in the body), or feelings of anxiety, tension, or agitation. Your doctor will probably tell you not to take lisdexamfetamine.

Also tell your doctor if you have recently had a heart attack and if you have or have ever had a heart defect, high blood pressure, an irregular heartbeat, hardening of the arteries, or other heart problems. Your doctor will examine you to see if your heart and blood vessels are healthy before you start taking lisdexamfetamine and will check your heart and blood pressure regularly during your treatment with lisdexamfetamine. Your doctor will probably tell you not to take lisdexamfetamine if you have a heart condition or if there is a high risk that you may develop a heart condition.

  • talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking lisdexamfetamine if you are 65 years of age or older. Older adults should not usually take lisdexamfetamine because it is not as safe as other medications that can be used to treat the same condition.
  • you should know that this medication may make it difficult for you to perform activities that require alertness or physical coordination. Do not drive a car or operate machinery until you know how this medication affects you.
  • you should know that lisdexamfetamine should be used as part of a total treatment program for ADHD, which may include counseling and special education. Make sure to follow all of your doctor's and/or therapist's instructions.

Brand names

  • Vyvanse

What is Vyvanse?

Vyvanse, or lisdexamfetamine dimesylate, is a psychostimulant used to treat ADHD. Vyvanse is basically dextroamphetamine (Adderall) combined with L-lysine, an essential amino acid. The difference between Adderall and Vyvanse is that Vyvanse was created as a longer-lasting ADHD drug that is less likely to be abused. It functions in the same way as Adderall, by increasing the availability of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain. This allows the patient to achieve a higher level of concentration and a greater attention span.

How do I take Vyvanse?

Use Vyvanse patient assistance or Vyvanse coupons and discount cards from HelpRx to buy this medication with a prescription in your local pharmacy. Because Vyvanse is a schedule II drug, you will have to use a new prescription for each refill.  Vyvanse comes as capsules to be taken orally once per day in the morning. The recommended dose of Vyvanse is 30mg per day, but dosage may be increased by your doctor over time. The maximum dosage prescribed may be 70mg per day. Follow instructions given to you by your doctor for your condition. For those who can’t swallow capsules, the contents may be emptied and stirred into a glass of water. Drink the whole glass of water at once. Do not divide capsules. This medication should be prescribed along with counseling, especially for children, to help develop healthy habits and stability that can help them to overcome their condition. Vyvanse is not a cure for ADHD.

Before taking Vyvanse, tell your doctor if:

  • You have a history of drug or alcohol abuse or dependence.
  • You have heart disease, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, or any other heart or blood vessel problems.
  • You or someone in your family has a history of mental illness such as mania, bipolar disorder, depression, or Tourette’s syndrome.
  • You experience seizures or motor tics.
  • You have ever had a stroke.
  • You are allergic to amphetamines or any of the ingredients in Vyvanse.
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You have high blood pressure.
  • You have glaucoma.
  • You are taking prescription or nonprescription drugs, especially MAO inhibitors and other medications for mental illness and furazolidone.

What are the possible side effects of taking Vyvanse?

Possible side effects from taking Vyvanse include a lack of appetite, headache, nausea, stomach pain, dry mouth, nervousness, trouble sleeping, accelerated heart rate, dizziness or blurred vision, irritability, and a change in libido. If you experience a negative mood change such as feeling depressed or aggressive, contact your doctor at once. Also contact your doctor if you experience chest pain or an allergic reaction.

What if I forget to take a dose of Vyvanse?

If you miss a dose of Vyvanse, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. If it’s almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your regular schedule. Also, if it’s just a few hours before bedtime, you may choose to skip the dose as well. Do not take a double dose of this medication to compensate for a missed one. 

How do I store Vyvanse?

Store Vyvanse tightly closed in its container at a room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Protect your medication from heat and light. Keep Vyvanse out of reach of children and pets and do not share your medication with anyone else. This medication is a schedule II controlled substance.

What happens if I overdose on Vyvanse?

Individual reactions to high doses of amphetamines vary. Possible signs of overdose on Vyvanse include tremors, rapid breathing, panic, confusion, twitching, aggression, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue following by convulsions and coma in toxic doses. If you or someone you know has overdosed on Vyvanse, call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222. If the victim is unconscious or unresponsive, call 911.



Vyvanse may cause dizziness or drowsiness. Do not drive or operate machinery if you experience these side effects. Monitor for any signs of dependence, substance abuse, or negative changes in mood such as depression or suicidal thoughts. This medication may slow growth in young children.
