Posting story hoping it will help me take the solid move to stop. I Loved Vyvanse and the way it made me feel. Took vyvanse for 10 + years. Started at age 50 and it gave me the energy and thought process of a twenty or thirty year old. I starting computer programming in the 1980s and it's been a fun great career path. Vyvanse (70 + 40 mg ) a day seemed to keep me so productive and continued my career along side 20 30 and 40 year olds. My blood pressure skyrocketed but carelessly was in denial. At 59.5 years of age Feb 1 2018; had a stroke leving right side of body with no feelings. I was horrified and scared I would be handicapped. That day woke me up. I immedidated started tapering down. Doctors wanted to load me up with high blood pressure medicine. I got worse. I changed my diet, and started an holistic approach to getting better. It's been a very slow and feel I'm being a little long winded but want to get this out. In 2018 started getting massages, exercising, eating whole foods, and an excruciating slow tapering process. Went from 110 to 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 and now 20 about every other day. I just told doctor to not renew my 10mg and very nervous about not performing at work which sounds silly at 62. Regardless, I hope by sharing this will help me to take the final plunge to stop vyvanse. I'm fortunate that I have had about 90 percent recovery from stroke and blood pressure is getting manageable. I have a holistic doctor now which is giving me biofeedback therapy, nad+ iv, and with the diet, exercise, making slow slow progress. I can grow, educate, and make changes even in my 60s. Posting now and hope to post again with progress. Thanks, george
