Weigh the Benefits and Risks of Vyvanse in Binge-Eating Patients
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is now approved for moderate to severe binge eating disorder in adults...not just for ADHD.
About 1 in 70 adults have a binge eating disorder. These patients have frequent episodes of compulsive, out-of-control overeating...that often lead to obesity and mood disorders.
When suggesting a treatment, consider availability, cost, patient preference, and other comorbid conditions.
