So since i started back on Adderall about a month ago i started biting my upper and lower lip. Now its licking both lips, and biting/licking my lower lip mostly. Sometimes sticking my bottom lip under my upper lip. 

I CANT stop it. i try, i cant. I notice im doing it, i try to stop it, then just do it again, all day long. Embarassing, i work with my own patients all day long.

and no putting like carmex or other bad tasting chapstick there doesnt work.

apprently googling this, it seems like this is a thing

Bump 

 

pdoc said this can can happen. I’m trying vyvanse again on a lower dose.

 

if this had happened to you or someone you know , does it go away.l? If so when? Obviously it’s only the next day, but I’m doing it still.

I have the same issue with stimulants. ?

You might consider trying guanfacine (Tenex), which is a blood pressure medicine, but is used for ADHD and tics.

My neurologist put me on propranolol for it, not sure if it’s in the same class. Helps a little.

Interesting, never heard of propranolol for that indication.

Propranolol is a β-blocker, while guanfacine is an α2-agonist.

It was also given to help with physical symptoms of anxiety so maybe it was more  for that. I’ll have to ask about the other one early February. 

OH I see... Yeah that makes more sense. Definitely works for that.

Hopefully it goes away switching back to vyvanse . 

 

Also noticed i have some trouble peeing since being on adderall hoefully that clears too

Yes urinary retention is a noradrenergic side effect... I have it too. ? I've found that beta-blockers kinda help it a little but not much.

Yes, well... Adderall is a bit more noradrenergic than Vyvanse, so you're likely to get that more likely than from Vyvanse or Dexedrine.

It can go away, and it will likely last probably about a week or so I'd guess, if it's going to go away.

But the tics and whatnot may or may not go away.

Did  u mean that more

liekly to get from adderall then vyvanse? Not from the vyvanse?

 

the urine I can deal with, the tic no, that has to go 

You're probably more likely to get the tics from Vyvanse/Dexedrine because they're more dopaminergic and more active on the CNS.

But meds like clonidine (Catapres) or guanfacine (Tenex) can not only help the tics but also help ADHD.

The Stim is more for depression I had not tics and urinary issues on vyvanse it was the perfect med sans Raynaud’s.

 

adderal I the tics started and urinary issuws

Maybe they'll both disappear with Vyvanse. See what happens with switching back to Vyvanse and then if tics still happen let's cross that bridge if we need to. Make sense?

Just keep in mind the clonidine and guanfacine.

Antipsychotics work well too.
