Talking increases two fold on Vyvanse
My daughter was switched from 10 mg of Focalin to 30 mg of Vyvanse about two weeks ago. The first dose she got she felt sleep most of the morning, so I thought maybe it was to much. Then it seemed her body got use to it, the first week she complained that she didn’t like it, the Vyvanse seemed to have a more calming, mellowing affect on her, which we have never really experienced on the Focalin. She said it made her feel lazy and she didn’t like that feeling, but the past few days she hasn’t said anymore about that feeling, but what I have noticed is the talking has increased two fold. Don’t get me wrong, I have the sweetest, kindest little girl, I don’t know how I got so lucky, and what she has to say is important, she loves to talk about her day at school, the things she is learning….but it goes on all day and gets a bit overwhelming to me, has anyone else noticed this being on Vyvanse?
Also, sleep has become a big problem with the Vyvanse. Her normal melatonnin dose isn’t cutting it, and I notice my daughter laying awake, asking me what time it is and getting what I would call sort of panic attacks about not being able to fall asleep on time and saying she is having some trouble breathing. this has only happened the past two nights, but still it’s a worry. Any advice would be great, do you think we should go to her Dr and get on a lower dose? Thanks.
