View Full Version : Vyvance and Weight Loss

Hi Guys,

I've been on Vyvance 50mg (once daily) for several months - it's been amazing. I can concentrate, get stuff done and feel much clearer. I was on Ritalin previously but it didn't do much and wore off too quickly.

So, all in all, good.

Except it absolutely kills my appetite. I have lost 8 kg since starting (without trying) and don't want to lose more. It's hard to even force food down, though I try.

Is this a common side-effect? My appetite was very much unchanged on Ritalin.

It has also affected my sleep but I can manage with that (have started taking it earlier) but the appetite issue stays with me even when I have skipped a pill. I can see why it's other use is for binge eating, but I didn't think it would be so pronounced.

Simply just eat because you need it. It is not impossible to enjoy food on Vyvanse.
