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?
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.
