Re: can welbutrin make vyvanse weaker?

For me, it’s hard to say.

I’ve taken bupropion and dextroamphetamine sulfate for years, most often together, sometimes one or the other alone.

I’ve thought about this, I have read the literature, and I have spoken with a neuropsychopharmacologist about it.

All that, plus my own experience of taking these medications, didn’t result in a definitive answer.

It likely varies from person to person, and even for a given person over time.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: can welbutrin make vyvanse weaker?

Which of the doses you mentioned did your doctor tell you to take?

Re: can welbutrin make vyvanse weaker?

usually my doc ask me how do i feel.
he told me to take 300 mg welbutrin, i told him it's to strong after 2 weeks i tried, so i he cut it back to 150.
right now i take 150 + 70x2 vyvanse.
i wish i could take less vyvanse, but each pill works only 6-7 hours, so i have to take it twice in a day and i always afraid that it too much and can hurt me.

Should you must take Wellbutrin, you'd be wasting money on Vyvanse. Many people take them together admittingly without benefit even though its not recommended in fact contra-indicated and even when Psychiatrists themselves are iffy on this dual usage. Vyvanse is a beautiful medicine worth gold, please dont waste it. I call it 'the revenge of Wellbutrin'. To feel the beauty Vyvanse again you'll have to wait about 2-3 weeks at least for it get out of your system. For some reasons it took me a month.

Well, technically, Wellbutrin raises dopamine and norepinephrine levels -- Vyvanse also raises these, however, raises dopamine a little higher. The reason Wellbutrin is considered an antidepressant is because, as it raises
norepinephrine levels, serotonin, by itself, will try to raise it's levels to create a balance with norepinephrine. This decreases anxiety, and it's why people who are too anxious on stimulants takes Wellbutrin. I also wouldn't classify it as a non-stimulant -- but for some people, it really isn't stimulating, so, to each their own.

And as much as I agree that Vyvanse is gold, and beautiful -- it only feels this way. Realistically, Vyvanse is poisonous, and it's only a matter of time before you have to go on a drug holiday to feel the effects again. Not judging, I take Vyvanse and Wellbutrin, but it certainly isn't anything to be glorified. You should also know that, if you plan on going off Vyvanse after a few years of usage, you will have around 20% more dopamine transporters than you would've had, had you not taken Vyvanse at all. This, in turn, will make your ADHD worse if you ever plan on stopping your Vyvanse therapy.

Life sucks. Vyvanse works, but you are paying an unfortunate price. Especially if you're taking 70mg x 2 a day (which, honestly, your psychiatrist should be feeling very guilty for prescribing you such a large dose).

Why would you say this as if it is fact? It may be your experience but that doesnt make it a definite for other people.

Why say the op's doctor should feel guilty? Are you a doctor? Many of us are on above average doses for many reasons. I am on 80 mg of adderall a day due to absorption issues. If I miss a day or two I am tired but I bounce back ok.
