I am 39 years old and switched from Adderall XR to Vyvanse a few weeks ago. I thought that things were going well at first and that I would feel better after an adjustment period.

My son is 6 and has been on Vyvanse for 6mon. It has helped him in school but he has had some side effects like not eating he has went from 65 to 54 in the 6mon of taking it. He has stomach problems. And dosen't sleep well. It helps alot but I still haven't decided if its worth it.

MY 9 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER BEGAN TAKING VYVANSE 3 MONTHS AGO. SHE IS HAPPIER AND MORE FOCUSED. SHE WAS EVEN ABLE TO GET HER GRADES UP IN THE LAST 9 WEEKS OF SCHOOL AND WENT FROM FAILING MATH TO PASSING! THIS WAS THE BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE FOR MY DAUGHTER! THE FIRST 72 HOURS WERE DIFFICULT BUT WORTH THE EFFECTIVENESS AND IMPROVEMENT OF MY DAUGHTER'S LIFE!
