    Question Vyvanse (lisdexamphetamine)

    Since being on vyvanse I have had serious issues with compulsive skin picking and hair pulling (trichotillomania).

    Wondering what others' experiences have been like...

    I'm on 70 mgs a day I am female and weight about 125. Oddly enough I hVe a prob picking skin, although I have lived with it throughout my life. I was always told it has to do w ocd but I can relate bc when I first take it I will get SUPER INVOLVED in whatever I'm doing for an extended period of time. My boyfriend will have to drag me away haha.

    Thank you, hearing from you makes me feel less insane about this. I had been a "scab-picker" and nail biter my whole life, but nothing like this. This is actually my second time on vyvanse. The first time, it exacerbated a condition I had called neurodermatitis, which was basically anxiety and stress made my skin break out in these gross sores ALL over me, mostly arms legs and face, but also breasts & stomach. It mostly went away, but I am covered in the scars from it.

    My thing now is mostly hair pulling, started with legs & bikini area, usually ingrown hairs or any hairs in general, but the last few months I have been focusing on my face. I found like one stray hair and plucked it, and since then I will stand at the bathroom mirror for literally hours pulling any hair that I can see from like 4 inches away. It's crazy. Mind you I'm female. I don't have a facial hair problem or anything, but i'm scared I'm gonna get one if I keep this up. It's gotten so I can't take the med every day because of this. I waste so much time but I can't make myself walk away. It's like I'm in a trance, and it takes a hell of a lot to snap me out of it. Some nights I'll start around one am, and before I know it it's almost 5am and I hate myself...
