    Vyvanse (Psychiatric drug) may cause hepatitis

    I have called the manufacturers of Vyvanse which is used for ADD or ADHD to tell them my Gastroenterologist felt my severe hepatitis was caused by their drug. There was a very distinct relationship between beginning to take the drug and onset of the hepatitis. The man I spoke with didn't really seem to be taking notes or to care very much, so...I am spreading the word. If you or someone in your family begins to take this drug, watch them for symptoms. I just had extreme upper right quadrant pain, could barely walk or keep my eyes open. I was also beginning to turn a bit jaundiced. Don't wait. By the time I got to the hospital my liver values were off the chart. Looking at them a few years later still makes me sick to my stomach. Glad I didn't wait.
