I'm On 40mg Vyvanse for 1 week I think I anxious
( I was diagnosed with ADHD a week ago and was given 40mg of Vyvanse, I have taken it every day since.
I have noticed some very common reported side effects like reduced appetite and dry mouth or is the dry mouth anxiety?. I don’t remember ever in my life noticing the difference between not being hungry and not having an appetite. I try not to skip meals so I don’t get a migraine, But I can see my self not rush to eat on time like I would normally do. And I make sure to gulp down a lot of water through out the day because it helps me with my diet as well.)
Why I think I’m anxious? We’ll you might say if you think you are then you must be. Probably.
The first few days, (which by the way the doc said right away might not be the final correct dose. We just need to start somewhere.) I didn’t notice much of a big difference, other than I didn’t stop reading and searching all day and evening. By day at work, and in the evening on my phone, non stop. I am mature enough to understand that I had this all my life with out knowing. Not like I suddenly cough a bug some where. But now that I found out I just can’t stop trying to figure out what to do about it. I am aware of that it won’t happen over night and maybe much more longer then that or maybe never and it could be that is scaring the hell out of me. I don’t know why.
I am most of the time very comfortable with how I do things until I get in to pressure from other people like work family which don’t happen often.
The last two days, I think my thoughts were just too strong, non stop like a database running a search. Yesterday I did not go online all day to see if it will help. But I don’t think it mattered. I’m just having an overload.
Last night I found I was getting more nervous with people close to me especially towards the end of the day. I think it has to do with not being able to nap during the day even though I usually nap on weekends. Possibly, Vyvanse dose to sleep what it dose to appetite? I think, I could feel a little foggy but still not in the mood of sleeping? dose it make sense? Am I describing it correctly?
I need to go between a very very huge crowd tonight, and I’m really not looking forward to it. That might make me anxious as well. I just want to be alone at night. The only reason why I’m not saying NO is because not to disappoint my teen son. I could have him be there with someone else, but deep down I know I should be there as well. The question is, in general, or is there a general rule? because I know no one can tell me what to do. Do I go anyway? Or work out what’s best for me when you have ADHD? or am I feeding in to something? like when someone has OCD?
