Vyvanse Withdrawal Symptoms | Crash, Timeline, & Detox

Vyvanse withdrawal symptoms may include dysphoria, decreased mental health, psychosis, and drug cravings. ADHD medication addiction treatment programs in Ohio can help you manage your withdrawal symptoms.

Symptoms of Vyvanse withdrawal may include irritability, mood swings, muscle aches, psychosis, cravings for Vyvanse, and suicidal thoughts. These symptoms can last between 24 hours to 5 days after your last dose of Vyvanse.

Vyvanse is a Schedule II controlled substance prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and binge eating disorders. Vyvanse and its generic form, lisdexamfetamine dimesylate, has a high abuse potential in Ohio for its stimulant effects.

Vyvanse withdrawal can occur when you stop taking the drug abruptly. Withdrawal symptoms can be more severe if you were taking Vyvanse for a long period of time, or in higher doses than prescribed. 

Ohio substance abuse treatment centers offer detox programs so you can withdraw from Vyvanse safely.

What Is A Vyvanse Crash?

A Vyvanse crash refers to the stimulant effects of Vyvanse wearing off due to the drug leaving your system. The increased energy and mood caused by the use of Vyvanse may be replaced by drowsiness, tiredness, and dysphoria.

A Vyvanse crash can happen within a few hours after taking the drug. Crashes can be more severe if you have a physical dependence to Vyvanse, or if you’re taking the drug in high doses.

Vyvanse crashes are not the same as withdrawal symptoms. However, the fatigue, drowsiness, and dysphoria caused by a crash can contribute to Vyvanse abuse and Vyvanse addiction, similar to withdrawal symptoms caused by the drug.

Vyvanse Withdrawal Timeline

After 24 hours have passed since your last dose of Vyvanse, you may start to experience amphetamine withdrawal symptoms.

Symptoms such as drowsiness, depression, excessive sleeping, cravings, and muscle aches may be common. If you took Vyvanse in high doses, you may experience severe symptoms such as psychosis, hallucinations, and paranoia.

These symptoms can last for about 5 days, after which acute Vyvanse withdrawal symptoms may wear off. However, you may still experience withdrawal symptoms infrequently for up to 2 months after your last dose.

Vyvanse Detox Options In Ohio

The side effects of amphetamine withdrawal can make quitting Vyvanse, Ritalin, Adderall, and other prescription stimulants difficult for many Ohioans. If you or a loved one are struggling with Vyvanse withdrawal in Ohio, you can benefit from a medical detox program.

Medical detox provides you with professional healthcare and makes the withdrawal process manageable compared to quitting cold turkey. 

You may be prescribed medication during or after a medical detox to manage your symptoms. Antipsychotics and benzodiazepines can be prescribed to treat psychosis and anxiety, respectively.
