Could Vyvanse cause brain damage?
Can Vyvanse permanently damage the brain? I'm 19 and have been taking it for the past four months, even though I don't have ADHD.  On average I would take one 50 mg pill 4-5 times a week, but on occassion I would take two in one day (pretty rare).  Every couple of weeks, I would take a week or two off from taking them.  Recently I've quit, but I'm worried I may have caused some long lasting damage to my brain.  Any thoughts?

This is partially why I'm worried- it wasn't my perscription I was using, I bought them from a friend.

Why didn't you think about this before taking it?
I suggest making an appointment with a Neurologist!

Aside from the fact that it has already been pointed out that you should never take anybody else's prescription medication, has something changed with your thinking, the way you feel, etc. to lead you to believe that Vyvanse has damaged your brain?  Are you having irrational thoughts about brain damage?
