Sad and Stupid Bump

I am not a fan of Vyvanse! I thought the hardest part about switching from Adderral to Vyvanse was going to be when they had to pry the Adderall from my clenched fist. I started feeling lousy as soon as I switched last week. I figured that it was because most things feel lousy compared to taking speed every day. My brain melted yesterday. I couldn’t keep a thought in my head, I couldn’t pin down an idea, I could barely carry on a conversation. It continued to melt today, I am jittery, anxious, and stupid. This afternoon, I suddenly found myself unceremoniously in a depression. The kind of depression that takes a good couple of weeks to get going. The kind that you see gradually catching up with you in the rear-view mirror. I found this to be incredibly unfair and not cool.

I consulted Dr. Google and I’m having an adverse reaction to the Vyvanse. Lots of them. I’m putting this drug in the “A Lot of Nopes” column. What do I do now? I could, with a straight face, tell the doctor that I gave it an honest try and I would like my adderall back please and thank you very much. I’ll do some research tomorrow when I can form a coherent thought. I’m gonna  keep calm and chill until this stupid and sad wear off.

  1. Ultimately your doctor has to seriously consider your drug reactions. However, wouldn’t it be best to give it a fair shot first?!


  2. How long is long enough to give it a try? This sounds incapacitating. But never having had such a sudden reaction to medications myself, I really don’t know what the answer is.
