Lisdexamfetamine, Elvanse, second day, heavy headache
 
Hi,

I am taking the first time medication for helping me with my adhs syndrome. My doc told me to take 20mg (half a pill) the first two days. I did so and the positive sides are, i feel less distracted. The side effects are heavy headache like a heavy migraine. Does this get better? And can i take a pain killer while i am on an adhs medication?
Thank you so much

Hi, I don`t take Elvanse but Ritalin Adult, and I had the same problem when I started with this; headaches for about a week or more. For me it got better soon, now I don`t have side effects anymore. I would wait a few days, drink a lot of water/tea, that also helps. I didn`t take any pain killers but coffee and green tea help as well.Hope it gets better soon...
