I’m approaching my 30th day on Vyvanse to help treat my adult ADD.  The first couple of weeks I had some bad cluster headaches come through.  Dropping off the doxepin seemed like the dumbest thing I could have done.  Then I noticed a change – the cluster headaches started to dissipate.

I’m still feeling a shadow once in a while with some sinus drainage.  But then it seems the actual cluster never hits.  My pain has never been as bad as other cluster headache sufferers that I know but this was welcome relief.  I’ve only read of one other instance of Vyvanse helping a cluster headache sufferer online.  I’m going to keep an eye on this for sure.
