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. My doctor suddenly suggested I switch to Vyvanse, offering little explanation why. (Supposedly, Shire's patent on Adderall is close to expiring and they are attempting to continue to corner the market by pushing the docs to prescribe Vyvanse, which Shire also makes.) I ...

I am a 26 year old female and have been taking this medication for only about 2 months now. I can't even explain what a difference it has made for me! I can finally think and follow through on things that I was usually too "scatter brained" to handle before. The only problem I have had is that I have gained 6 pounds since I started the medication. I have been SO hungry! I know th ... Show Full Comment

I'm 15 year young and I did take Adderall for about 4 years. But I wasn't eating very much and was kinda depressed a lot and did not work as fast as I needed it to work. So i was put on Vyvanse and while I thought it was working okay I relaized that I feel like I don't want to do anything and have trouble breathing. I have only been on this drug for about 3 months now

My daughter began taking this drug 2 weeks ago. While her stomach hurts and she is not sleeping much yet- she is much happier than she has ever been. It is as though she can now make friends and do her school work! Unfortunately its not quite going to fix everything. We are now examining the need for prozac.
