It has been a while since I've been on the forums, long enough that I've forgotten my information, hence the new account.
OK, to start off... I have ADD (or ADHD or whatever), I take drugs for this, and I have these bitchin' headaches that I hope that someone can give me an explanation.
First, I take 70mg of Vyvanse per day; I occasionally overdue it if I have a paper due or for some other hapless reason.
I am well hydrated and my nutritional balance is also well.
I get these headaches, a dull node localized to the left frontal lobe, behind my eye it seems, and nothing has worked to fully relieve my pain so far.
I have only taken moderate amounts of Excedrin or Tylenol, and some weed.
It has recently come to my attention that my headaches might be coming from excess vasoconstriction and hyperaemia due to amphetamine; I completely agree that this is a logical explanation, yet I am wondering why Excedrin and Tylenol (also vasoconstrictors) work if they would just stack on to the amphetamine?
Now seeing that ADHD is dominant in the dysfunction of the frontal lobe, specifically behavioral inhibition, sustained attention, and executive functions, would it be logical to state that I am getting headaches because simply put my brain is not used to that kind of output? I am no science major, so please correct me if you feel there is a flaw in my reasoning.
Let me also point out that I do not believe that this is due to Vyvanse itself, because I have taken others.. Adderall and such, as well as different drugs all together, like Concerta (methylphenidate), and the result is the same. I also sometimes get the same headaches when I am not currently medicated.
Any suggestions, comments, ideas are all welcome.
