How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your System?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a treatable medical condition that affects both adults and children. ADHD is diagnosed based on specific criteria that include a complete history and evaluation by a healthcare provider. Although most people were diagnosed with ADHD during there youth, it is possible for an adult not to be diagnosed until later in life. In this article, we will go back to discussing Vyvanse and its effects on one’s body.

Despite some common misconceptions, children do not grow out of this disorder, symptoms change over time and what may have been an issue during their youth may not be once the patient has reached maturity. Although some individuals may not have been diagnosed until adulthood, the disorder was always present. It is believed that some children are capable of creating coping mechanisms and masking the telltale signs of ADHD. Once the demands of work and family life changed, what once worked to hide the symptoms no longer effective leading to frustration, confusion and often anxiety. 

Although the symptoms of ADHD differ from person to person, common ones do exist. Listed below are just a few that are often seen in adults with this condition. 

ADHD Symptoms:

  • Makes careless mistakes and lacks attention to details
  • Often has difficulty paying attention to tasks
  • Seems not to listen when spoken to directly
  • Fails to follow through on instructions or duties in the workplace
  • Lack of organizational skills
  • Avoids participating in jobs that require sustained mental effort
  • Loses thing easily
  • Easily distracted by other things including unrelated thoughts
  • Forgetfulness
  • Restlessness 
  • Unable to participate in leisure activities
  • Excessive talking
  • Difficulty waiting on others
  • Often interrupts or intrudes on others

These symptoms can affect individuals at home, work or in social situations. To be diagnosed, five or more of these symptoms must occur for at least six months and be present in two or more settings. Additionally, there must be clear evidence that the symptoms interfere with a person’s social or work functions and that they are not due to another mental health disorder. 

 

ADHD Medications

Since ADHD was first recognized as a separate mental health disorder, researchers have studied ways to help individuals cope. The two ADD/ADHD treatments that currently show the most benefit are therapy and medications. While therapy is often an excellent place to learn effective coping mechanisms, drugs have been developed that help patients function normally.

Vyvanse is a prescription medication that was developed to treat adults who have ADHD. It is designed to increase attention while decreasing impulsiveness. Approved in 2007 by the FDA, Vyvanse is a prodrug, and its side effects are considered to be less harsh than other ADHD medications. A prodrug is an inert substance that is metabolized in the body to become an active medication; in this case dextroamphetamine. Dextroamphetamine increases the availability of dopamine and norepinephrine in the central nervous system. These chemicals work together to maintain alertness, increase focus and sustain thought, effort, and motivation.

How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your Urine?

Drug tests are often used to screen for the presence of amphetamines. Not only can they detect the parent drug but the metabolites left behind as the drug is processed as well. Individuals who are prescribed certain medications should be aware that if their employer requires random drug screening, those who take Vyvanse will receive a positive test. Proper documentation such as a current prescription should be readily available if a drug screening is administered. 

Vyvanse is currently only available in an extended-release capsule. The effects of this medication will last from 10-14 hours after administration, but it can be screened for in the urine up to three days after usage even if a second dosage is not administered.

Some people may process Vyvanse faster than others depending on the rate their body metabolizes it. Also, younger, healthier and even larger people tend to eliminate medications more quickly than others. Those who have health problems or organ function impairment excrete drugs slower.

Blood screenings for  Vyvanse use have a relatively short detection window. Approximately eight hours after using this medication, a blood test will not indicate usage. In fact, the window is so short that Vyvanse is very rarely detected by this method. 

Medical practitioners often require drug screenings when prescribing amphetamines to their patients. This type of drug can be highly addictive and is often abused. To ensure that prescribing recommendations have been followed, routine testing may be ordered to verify the amount of Vyvanse in the patient’s system. Individuals who have been taking it as prescribed should not worry. However, if too much of this powerful drug is detected, your provider may discontinue its use. The FDA lists Vyvanse as a Schedule II class drug and is considered dangerous if not carefully monitored. 

If Vyvanse is used by someone who it was not prescribed, they can experience side effects such as irritability, anxiety and sleep disturbances. Rarely individuals, including those who have a prescription for its use, can have more severe complications such as panic attacks, hallucinations, mania, delusions, and paranoia. Be sure to discuss anything unusual with your mental health provider.

ADD/ADHD Medications: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help potential patients find the right medication they need to improve their health. Our medical staff can assist all types of patients seeking stimulants that can help them live a better life. Vyvanse is one such stimulant that can help people who may have ADHD, eating disorder, or another ailment that can be treated with the drug. While a helpful ADHD treatment prescription drug, it is important to know what the drug does, who it is for, the benefits, and the side-effects.

For many, life can provide plenty of great things, but it can also cause unwanted stress. Whether it’s work, family, friendships, or relationships, there is plenty of reason to be stressed for one reason or another. Unfortunately for some, this stress can affect one’s life in such an extreme way that they become less productive and stable. Some people find themselves with symptoms that prevent them from completing work or doing things they want to do, which can be severely damaging to one’s life.

What Is Vyvanse?

ADHD/ADD is a disorder that can bring with it symptoms of being unproductive and maybe even less stable than you once were. While it is common for patients to have had ADHD since childhood, it can still develop in adults. Vyvanse is able to treat ADHD symptoms that cause people to lose focus; through taking this medication, a patient will find themselves feeling relief that will allow them to take the next steps towards full recovery.

ADHD is not the only thing patients can use Vyvanse for, as it has a variety of uses that makes it versatile for all patients. If you exhibit similar symptoms of stress, lack of focus, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, and the like, you can be prescribed Vyvanse legally from a licensed doctor. All you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with a licensed doctor who can evaluate you. From there, you explain to them why it is you think would benefit from having Vyvanse or another type of stimulant.

What is Vyvanse and how it works

How Does Vyvanse Work?

Vyvanse, like other stimulants, works by entering your body and targeting your brain’s reward center, which will then allow it to release dopamine. This is vital, as dopamine enables the brain to function as it should, which means a more functioning and productive person. The neurotransmitters in the brain work to provide, as the drug name implies, stimulation to the mind, which will allow for a tighter focus on behalf of the user. By giving the brain the stimulation it craves, the body and mind become alert and properly energized. This translates to a patient being able to stay focused and less restless than they were before, making it a prime prescription drug for treating ADHD and related ailments.

Due to these positive benefits of brain stimulation, drugs like Vyvanse become quite popular with all types of people and not just those that might be who have ADD/ADHD. If you find yourself with overwhelming stress, you can check with your licensed doctor and see if you qualify for stimulants. It can be a very popular legal drug among students, who find themselves unable to handle the pressures of school properly. Due to their legal status and general ease of access, stimulants are available to many people who are able to qualify for a prescription. While this is mostly a good thing, since it means more people are able to receive helpful medication, it can also be a problem in some circumstances, though not usually.

Vyvanse Risks

While drugs like stimulants are very helpful, it is always essential to understand the risks that go along with them. You should not be taking a stimulant if you are not aware of the possible dangers behind taking the drug, as they can be quite severe depending on the individual. The side-effects associated with Vyvanse include hypertension, erectile dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, loss of appetite, blurred vision, and muscle spasms. These effects can be unfortunate for anyone, but it is especially problematic for those who already have severe anxiety and stress.

Vyvanse Side-Effects

Physical side-effects are important, but just as vital are side-effects which are psychological in nature. Stimulants are already trying to work on your brain, so having an additional mental issue is the last thing you want happening. Increased alertness and concentration are among the side-effects, which means being even more focused and energized than you should be. You can also find yourself having more significant anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and lack of confidence, all of which can have an adverse effect on your treatment. The psychological effects of a stimulant can be a major problem, so make sure any and all side-effects are reported to your doctor.

Side-effects are a common thing that has become a well-known disclaimer when advertising prescription drugs. However, there is more to these drugs than just common side-effects; you can also become dependent, tolerant of, and addicted to Vyvanse. The tolerance comes from taking the drug in large enough quantities that their effect is no longer working. If this happens, you might want to simply increase your dosage, but it might depend on how you are handling the current dosage. This is where dependence and addiction come in; it is well-known that users can become addicted to their medication, and stimulants are no different. Those with addictive histories or personalities are usually not recommended to take stimulants for these reasons.

If you are interested in Vyvanse or any other medication for your ADD/ADHD treatment and understand the benefits and risks, then contact us at Mango Clinic to schedule your appointment. You will speak with a licensed physician who will help you understand how stimulants work and which one would be best for you. After an evaluation, you will decide on a type of medication and dosage, which you will be able to pick up at your local pharmacy.
