I was diagnosed with BED approximately a month ago. I'm currently taking 50mg of this drug and it has completely taken away my desire to eat all of the time. The first day I didn't walk to the fridge 30 times to see if there was more food I could eat. I accomplished stuff I couldn't bring myself to do normally. Makes me think that I may have an ADHD problem and this is helping it as well. I have lost nearly 20 pounds in about 4 weeks. Not intentionally, just eating a more normal amount of calories each day. I do keep track of my calories and protein to make sure I am getting enough to eat each day to stay healthy. I don't crave sweets. I am generally happier. I will say that on Day 1 of medicine I felt like I was doing everything in fast forward --talking, moving, thinking etc. However, that did wear off pretty quickly. Now I like my new normal of feeling. I have saved money from the amount of food I purchased at the store on a weekly/daily basis. Now, seeing how much I used to eat, I'm a little nervous of ever stopping the medicine. My doctor said I need to be under her care while on this medicine and I am required to see her every 3 months, but that's a small price to pay to get my life back. Yes the dry mouth is pretty crazy. I keep water with me at all times. I don't crave soda anymore and I do feel full faster. My life has completely changed in just under 4 weeks.

I've been on this for just over 2 months now. I instantly noticed that my urge to eat and keep eating stopped. I also don't have cravings any longer. This is great as I was binge eating at nearly every meal. I told my doctor that the switch between my stomach and my brain that said I was full didn't work. Within two days of being on Vyvanse I noticed that for the first time in decades I felt full while eating. I actually have leftovers now. My family and friends are shocked by this - as I am. There are several side effects though - however, imo, they benefits of the drugs effectiveness outweighs those effects. Here is what I've experienced while taking it. Dry Mouth - OMG is it bad. But I've learned to use mouthwash - a lot. Drink lots of water and suck on the Act dry mouth drops or chew gum. All of it helps to counter the dry mouth. Insomnia - I struggled with this before and now it's worse. I have to take my pill no later than 8:30 in the morning or I'm up nearly the entire night. So no more sleeping in on Saturday mornings. I did try to skip taking the pill on Saturdays to allow sleeping in. I binged that entire day and while I knew I was doing it and I shouldn't be, I couldn't stop. Depression once the pill wears out of your system. My doctor knew this effect and I went on an antidepressant prior to starting Vyvanse. The combination of the two limits the amount of depression I feel. Now for the good side effects: increased energy, increased alertness, weight loss and a generally overall happier mood each day. I'm not sure how long term of a solution this pill is but at this point I'd be scared to stop it as I know that the behaviors are still there and I'd revert back to the binging which is not something I ever want to do again.

I have been taking 50mg of Vyvance for 9 months. Before Vyvance I was a binge eater for about 20 years and had tried everything with no success. I am about 90% binge free now and feel increased energy as an added benefit. The dry mouth and increased heart rate greatly reduced after about 4-6 months. I have never had any trouble sleeping. If you skip the daily dose, you can really feel the difference; cravings, depression, tiredness. I also think, after 9 months, that the positive effects don't last as long or do not "kick in" as much as they used to. However; I will not go on a larger dose because my body will probably adjust to that as well. For now, I will remain on the 50mg daily dose and take whatever benefits it provides. The benefits still far outweigh how I felt without it.

ADHD Inattentive type This drug has been a life saver for me. I have no jitteriness or any other indication that I am taking it, but I can attend a government meeting and pay attention the whole time. It helps with executive function overall. I have better control of my emotions, and my eating. When I first started taking Vyvanse my Doc prescribed 10mg capsules and said to try various levels to see what was most effective. I ended up at 50, a few years later 60, then 70mg. I have since quit that job and left Washington DC, and I am back down to 50mg. Even though I am not working, I still have a lot to do with kids, an 89 yo father etc. I am able to get things done and stay under control. My doctor also prescribed Adderol for long days with late meetings when I needed a boost, and I would also take it on those rare days I could sleep in. I don't like to take Vyvanse after 10:00 am, I usually take it between 5 and 6 am. I have sleep difficulties even when not on ADD medication, so I take melatonin with the theanine and valerian before bed and have a cup of "sleepy tea" as part of my pre bed routine. In DC I was averaging 3-5 hours of sleep per night, now I am back up to 7-8 hours, even with Vyvanse, so I know Vyvanse wasn't the problem there. I wish this had been around when I was in school, I would have been so much more successful. But they barely knew about ADD then, and it was only for boys. ; ) I am the inattentive type of ADD

I have been taking Vyvanse for BED for 4 months and I love it. I have more energy, and no longer feel like an a$$hole, as I don't feel so out of control with food. I am eating better foods, as the focus is now simply on nutrition and not how much food I can eat. I don't have the dry mouth that others are having... just energy, focus and more balanced eating habits.
