I have experienced “air hunger” as a result of Vyvanse. It feels like no matter how big of a breath I take, I can’t get a good one. I know it’s related to the medication because when I stopped taking it temporarily the breathing issue stopped; when I started taking it again the breathing issue came back. I tried a couple different things, including meds for anxiety, but the thing that made it go away is actually really easy – when I start feeling air hunger, I focus on my breathing, mainly the exhale. Breathe all the way out and hold for a moment, then breathe in and breathe all the way out and hold. The air hunger usually subsided after a couple repetitions. I don’t know why it’s effective, but it works for me…
