    I have been taking this medication for 8 years, at first it worked great, heck, it still works great. However, it caused me to be depressed, I developed anxiety, hand tremors, severe insomnia, and many other negative things. I would not recommend this to anyone. The negatives outweigh the positives.

    I was prescribed this medicine approx 4 years ago by a psychiatrist for ADHD. I started at 30 mg, but within the past year, my doc and I decided 40mg would be more effective. Little side effects. I also have chronic insomnia, so I take this drug early in the am. My only complaint is that the pharmaceutical company still does not have a generic for this drug, and it is VERY expensive!

    Vyvanse is amazing. I've been on it since 2010 (I actually have ADHD w/o hyperactivity - you know, the spaced out version). It's been a miracle. I take 70mg in the morning (and used to also take 30mg in the afternoon). But it works wonders. I can get through school and work and whatever. Also, I have no physical side effects (racing heart, sweating, dizziness) that I had when I was on 60mg ... Show Full Comment

    This medication was given to my daughter for ADHD, after Focalin lost its luster. This medication has done wonders for my daughter. She can focus better, does better in school, and sleeps better at night as well.

    My 16 year old son took Vyvance for 5 days. He was already highly anxious and stressed. He ended up in hospital for 10 weeks with a one year recovery period. I have resigned from my job to be his carer. He is getting better every day but is vulnerable and not the same boy.
