Vyvnase Destoyed my Life -But I'm Coming Back Now

I totally agree and symphathize. I loved vyvanse for weight loss and long, energy filled days. However, being bipolar schizoeffective, this only made mania HORRIBLE. Thanks for your story.

vyvanse 70mg and Terrible ACNE
That makes total sense why I've been breaking out so bad!! It's not like little pimples either they are huge and get infected!! I'm actual about to switch to Ritalin sr? My insurance won't pay for the high doses of vyvanse!! I don't feel like I'm taking anything when I take vyvanse even at 80 mg I can't get anything done and all I want to do is sleep!!
