Why am I always hungry on vyvanse?

Seriously? Why? I can't stop eating. I have always eaten 6-7 small (complete) meals) per day. But now it seems like I need LARGER portions to keep me satisfied.

OR...

instead of being hungry every 3 hours. Its now more like every 1.5 hours.

Why?

Re: Why am I always hungry on vyvanse?

its happended to me.....its a rapid change in blood sugar (usually from high to low), believe its related to the stimulant effect on CNS triggers insulin release to consume glucose leaving you short on it.......also could be drop in serotonin trips your brain to consume food in order to replenish it......

so in short make sure you have food in you when you take it...and quality carbs and protein...these drugs go after every ounce of you!!!

You in Miami? Me too! LOL Yeah, I always have food with me. I'm just concerned why hungry all the time? Thought maybe I was getting diabetes or some illlness. And excessive hunger was a sign of something much worse.
