View Full Version : Thinking about quitting my meds

Hi newbie here :v

Been struggling with Elvanse (exactly the same as Vyvanse, also produced by Shire, just the UK version) for months now. I keep telling myself I need the meds and they do work but they seem to be making worse :(

My baseline mood while on the meds is a lot worse, almost bordering on depression. It seems to kick in, I feel great and ready to take on the day, for about an hour. Then I feel flat, tired, totally withdrawn and anti social.

I have thought this could be from too high a dose, but I've tried from 30mg to 70mg and they all have the same pattern of really good results for an initial period, followed by a crash type low mood effect lasting the whole remaining time the med is working.

Could I possibly need to go even lower than 30mg?
Sick of these extreme highs and lows :( Anyone else experienced this or am I just mental lol :p

There's a 20.

Does your doctor know the problems that are happening?

Maybe you need a different medication.
