I am a 15 year old girl and I've been taking Vyanse since I was about 8. School just got out and my mom wanted me to gradually get off my medicine for the summer because my meds make me grouchy and she wanted to try something more natural. I started taking half a dose but on the third day I accidentally took my medicine by habit while my mom was at work so my mom just decided that I keep taking it until she could find something more natural. It's been about two weeks since then and I've always loved sleeping but now it seems impossible to get a good rest. I've also noticed my night cravings getting worse... Please help:(
If you have trouble sleeping while on stimulants for ADHD, you need to talk to your prescribing doctor. In the meantime, try some over the counter melatonin to help you sleep. It is natural and not habit forming and should help you sleep. I would advise your mother to discuss things with your doctor before she takes you off your medications. You may feel better and function better on your medications once you get adequate sleep again.
