I started taking this my 3rd quarter of 8th grade. I am very smart but have had ADD since about 3rd grade,I'm also very unmotivated and don;t give much effort.The drug help me to go from straight D's to all A's and B's. It not only increased my attention but my motivation. I also i don't get bad side affects at all other then a small trouble sleeping at night.

My doctor prescribed this medication for me. I have been tacking it for two week now. I is incredibly easy to focus. I was tacking stitera, it just wasn't right. I have one minor side effect, when I take a second medicine (guaphisine) I have these quick flashes of black and i feel like I'm going to pass out. This only happens twice a day and lasts maybe 2 seconds.

During my one month follow up dr. gave me vyvanse to try to get a full day and no "drop off" I have been on it for 2 days and I notice on the second day that my emotio ... Show Full Comment

It has helped with my son's school attention. Before he couldn't really focus in school and not paying attention in class. Now he can focus and doesn't get in much trouble now. He still has his days, but they seem to be getting better and better all the time. Hopefully this medication will continue to help my son, and we won't have to change to another medication. Which it would ma ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
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. Ridiculous. Aside from the financial aspec ... Show Full Comment
