I recently got prescribed Vyvanse and it's worked wonders for me. Even though I'm supposed to take it every day, I've noticed that when I take it too many days in a row I start feeling kinda like a zombie. I take a number of different supplements to replenish the nutrients that amphetamines deplete. This helps, but the only real way to prevent this from happening is if I make sure to only take it 5 days a week or fewer. I guess it kind of gives my body some time to recover. I don't really trust myself not to take it every morning when I wake up so I'd like to give my prescription to my girlfriend to hold and help me keep to a schedule. She would never be taking my pills, but I'm worried she might get caught with my prescription sometime and could get in trouble. Is there a way to notify my doctor or pharmacist that she'll be helping to manage my medication so that she wouldn't get in trouble for this? I live in Connecticut, use CVS and my girlfriend also has ADHD and takes Adderall if that makes any difference. Not a big deal, but just something I've been curious about for a while.
No tellin' if your girlfriend could get tangled in legal issues carrying around your Vyvanse. Maybe, maybe not...
So better to explore other options if you're seeking piece of mind.
How about trying out something on your own, like putting the pill bottle in the freezer or some other location that forces you to go out of your way to get to it?
Or, ask your doctor for some ideas. Your doc should probably know about your "zombie" sensations anyway, and might be able to work with you to find a way to benefit from treatment w/o the zombie feeling...
