I just started Vyvanse after years of Adderall, Only 1 week on Vynase 40 mg and I have a need to breathe deeper to catch my breath. First I had trouble falling to sleep but my dr told me to take it 2 hrs before I wake up. (lol in my sleep) no it just sounds funny I do wake up about 4am anyway so I just take it then and it seems to work. (wears off earlier) but I'm worried about my breathing

I have been on Vyvanse for a couple of months. I now take 60mg. I had just posted something last night about chest feeling heavier like I need to take a deeper breath. This has been my first ADHD med and seem to be having a lot of the bad side effects. The side effect you are having is listed and states to contact your doctor. I go this Friday so I'm holding off on calling to talk in person. Hope this helps! I also have trouble falling asleep, so that's when I take my daily meds that make me sleepy. It helps to fall asleep.

Yes. I too have just switched from Adderall, 80 mil. a day for 6 years to Vyvanse, 2 days ago. 60 mil each morn. to start. I have always had this problem when changing certain meds. Used to think they were the start of a panic attack but it seems to become unnoticable after a while. I'm also a heart patient and am having issues in that area at this time. Was uncomfortable switching while I'm having problems in the heart area, but docs insisted and to be sure, I again told them about the breathing, and, Hey! If they're not concerned I guess I wont be. Why borrow trouble. People like us have enough the way it is. So, if it makes me feel good and it's approved by Docs, Im ok. But if it does start to become a REAL problem and gets worse, not better, I'd certainly make the doc pay attention. Im wondering how people compare the two. Good Luck, Mustangsal

Should we wean her off the Adderall or stop it cold turkey and then start her on the Vyvanse?
