Vyvanse Side Effects
I'm a 53 yr old woman with ADD (evaluated 15 mo. ago and told have mild ADD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and mild OCD); was prescribed Vyvanse but only took it about 3 months. I quit taking it because of the weird feelings in my mouth...dry, burning tongue, along with sores. I was constantly rubbing my tongue on my teeth or chewing on it.
I've had such a hard time trying to keep an organized home, deal with my decorating (home party) business, and get through this Christmas, that I decided I should try the Vyvanse again.
Right away, though, I am having the same awful oral symptoms. I've had lots of energy the past few days and could focus, so am trying to ignore the way my mouth feels but it's almost impossible.
I even took a smaller dose, having separated the capsules and divided them into 2 separate capsules.
Are there any other meds that don't cause this side effect? I also take Citilopram for my anxiety issues. My OCD problem is with skin picking, which I think is made worse by taking the Vyvanse. Sleeping is also an issue for me, and I take 50mg of Trazadone, which lets me sleep but I wake up groggy and pretty worthless in the mornings.
I'm thinking I will skip the dose tomorrow and see how my mouth feels.
Have others experienced these symptoms? Thanks for input!
