What problems can I expect if I discontinue Vyvanse (side effects) and should I be "weaned" off?

- vyvanse, side effect
What adverse side effects can occur if Vyvanse is stopped "cold turkey"? Should a person be weaned off? At what point, i.e., hours, days, etc., after missing doses would the adverse side effects start manifesting?

You will always want to take a safe route and ween off any drug you take but especially a drug that contains amphetamine and that is a scheduled drug(narcotic).

MrsPage is right. Vyvanse is a drug that you wouldn't want to stop cold turkey. You need to ask your prescriber to help you taper off of it safely. Stopping cold turkey can cause increased fatigue and sleeping as well as increased depression and suicidal thoughts. Hope this helps.
