I got prescribed vyvanse the other day for my ADD and my psychiatrist warned me that it could suppress my appetite (which I told her was fine but I was lowkey like GIVE ME THAT DRUG). I've taken ADD stimulants for college finals before and they definitely suppress my appetite, like to the point where I wouldn't eat all day and then at 8 pm I would force myself to eat a sandwhich or something.
Now that I'm actually prescribed it I'm excited but also a little nervous. Yesterday was my first day taking it and I had a really really small appetite and I'm not sure if I should feel amazing that I have this new "tool" or scared that I'll take too extreme advantage of it.
Does anyone else take stimulants? How do they feel about them/do they use them for ED purposes?

word of caution, try not to abuse it for appetite reasons, because the effect will fade and you will eventually have to take more and more and it will damage your body.

Just letting you know that that effect definitely won't last forever. You build a tolerance within less than a week (or that's been my experience with Vyv and Adderall) so if I were you I'd stagger my dose and only use it when I have shit to get done, not just to suppress your appetite everyday.

Edit: I'm currently prescribed 30mg of adderall xr for my ADHD. I used to abuse adderall and became addicted to it a couple years back. That happened bc as I said, tolerance built up quickly and I ended up having to do lines of that shit just to feel something. Now that I take it as prescribed it helps with my attention but doesn't do shit for my appetite. I've been taking it (legally) for about a year.

Thanks all, I didn't realize that I would wind up building up a tolerance. I took it again today and kind of decided on my own to at least stagger it because while I felt great on it yesterday it's making me feel kind of off today (more like the stimulant that it is vs. assisting me navigate a busy day, I've done nothing today).

vyvanse caused my relapse. i had to stop taking it after only 5 days because it gave me severe health problems, especially since i restrict so much. it pretty much takes the negative side effects of anorexia and makes them happen 1000 times faster. thought i was gonna die. not worth it...

When it wears off at the end of the day you will feel like absolute shit. You should at least have something small bc that makes it so much more manageable. But if yeah don't eat anything you will feel worse then if you don't eat anything without it.

Eh I still have negative effects such as bruxism and appetite suppression but it depends I think.

i havent used vyvanse before, but i'm trying to get on it. i was prescribed methylphenidate and it suppressed my appetite greatly. be careful, however. if you get insomnia from restricting, it's 1000000 times worse if you get the extended release of anything. the comedown makes you tired and jittery at the same time.

I just started it. I have both ADD and BED, but previously had anorexia. I do think it has suppressed my appetite for the past few days I've been on it, and I'm afraid that effect is now wearing off (evening of day 4). However, I am supposed to increase the dosage from 20 - 30mg in another week or so, so maybe the upped dose will have a renewed effect. I've felt mostly ok; just the usual shakiness and weakness I always get from restricting. I've also been drinking a lot of wine every night, though, so that might have to do with the feeling icky.

i take diet pills which suppress my appetite 👌👌. thing is, reading these posts, i think im going to be fucked when i stop taking them. inb4 i get addicted. i already managed to get off laxatives and i want to go back on since im 6 pounds more than i thought i was haha fuck me. but yeah i wouldn't get too used to it since it'll wear off at some point and probably feel worse than when you didn't have them.

Hi! I was on vyvanse for almost a year for ADHD but I just got switched to Evekeo (a new more expensive drug) but I will probably go back to vyvanse in a month...but anyways...yes if you have eating problems to begin with this drug will make it that much easier to do to yourself unfortunately. Also, obviously I haven't told my doctor about this although she was concerened with my weight loss. It wasn't until I got on vyvanse that I lost a crapton of weight. In fact, it has really made me a lot worse on the eating side of things. Focus is great but I it will take over your appetite. Just be really careful because at the and of the day stimulants can make you feel really crappy. My advice is: if you do not eat during the day DO NOT drink coffee. This will make you super shaky and nervous. And my other bit of advice is to try to eat something; anything before you even take it. It can make you feel better and then at the end of the day you won't feel awful. Good luck!
