    First of all parents should note that Vyvanse is given in 3 doses, 30mg, 50mg, and 70mg. My 8 y.o. son started on the 30mg and was increased a month later to 50mg and this is what he is currently at. In the 3+ months that he has been on it, the only difference I've noticed is that it is longer acting than Adderall XR.

    My 9 yr old daughter has been on Vyvanse for 3 months now and it's amazing. The first few weeks were horrible with moody swings and sleepless nights. The next month got easier as we learned how to best respond to her and adjust to our new bedtime routine. This is the 3rd month and she's the Student of the Month for her class for the first time. I only wish we would have pursued this ea ... Show Full Comment

    I am 27, and was just diagnosed with ADHD. My doctor put me on this pill, 60 mg, and after 2 weeks on it, I can say I wish I had this when I was in school. Yes, it will keep you awake at night, but all you have to do is lay down and close your eyes, and you will fall asleep. Also, If you smoke, this pill tends to make you want to smoke alot more. I dont know why it causes that, but I went from hal ... Show Full Comment

    My 16 year old daughter has been taking the lowest dosage of Vyvanse for 3 weeks now. Immediately, she noticed a change in her focus ability at school(for the better), but had some side effects, including dry mouth, headaches, and extreme irritability. She was taking adderall (10mg) for one year, but the medicine was too much of a rollercoaster, which is why we changed to Vyvanse. We were hopin ... Show Full Comment
