Comment:
I started taking Vyvanse a month ago and I have mixed emotions. While I am able to concentrate and focus a lot better, the side effects are wearing me down. After 5 hours I am very tired; I have headaches; dry mouth; and extreme irritability. Worst of all I have insomnia. It is a horrible feeling to be extremely tired and not able to fall asleep. My dosage is 50mg so I could only imagine the effec ... Show Full Comment

My 12 year old son started taking this last month. It has been wonderful.

My son was on this medicine for a whole three days. He had the side effects of, hearing noises, could not sleep, did not eat, wanted peace and quiet, said it felt like his heart was pounding throughout his whole body. His teacher said he had a huge improvement in his school but the downside was he was like a ZOMBIE. I am urging parents to please not put their kids on this drug.

Then after that he ate a normal dinner and was fine after that. It seems to be more effective than the Con ... Show Full Comment
