Supposedly Vyvanse is similar to Adderall, but it's not. I started seeing a new psych doc in the fall, and I told him that Adderall had worked for me in the past - however, he put me on a "new, improved" drug called Vyvanse - and the only thing new and improved about it was the price: my COPAY for the drug was $200/month for sixty 70mg caps.

I see very improvement in my work and in my task. But, like if you get mad, just watch out getting mad. Because it helps make you more mad. I am very satisfied. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who already has a short temper. But I have seen changes.And my teacher has to.

My 7 year old daughter start taking this medication in December. Although she lost a lot of weight at the very beginning of the treatment, she has maintained since the first two weeks of being on it. The difference in her behavior at home and at school is AMAZING! She has improved greatly in her school work and is not getting in trouble anymore. She is much happier.

Comment:
I am not happy at all with Vyvanse. I am 24 years old and have been taking Adderall (20 mg) to treat my ADD since high school.
