I like Vyvanse because it makes my day smoother. With Adderall I felt like I would be pedal to the metal when it would kick in and when it would wear off (6 hours later) it was like putting on the breaks. With Vyvanse I don't have those extremes, it's smooth, and since nobody has an 8 hour day, its nice having something that lasts 10-12 hours. I am an adult with ADHD (nurse and full-time s ...

Vyvanse did help me but I as a person with Aspergers, I hate the feeling of being drugged, and vyvanse made me feel drugged. I stopped taking it cold turkey a year ago.

I also stopped seeing my psychiatrist a year ago because I no longer trust psychiatrists anymore as the ones that I&# ... Show Full Comment

My son who is 10 has been on Vyvanse 20 MG for about a month now. It has been the worst medication I have given him. He now has a head side jerk thing going on and a should shrugging thing he does. I would not recommend giving this to a child.

Comment:
First drug I tried for ADD. Started at lowest dosage and made it up to highest. I honestly felt I was on speed for the most part. I couldn't drink coffee anymore (just decaf) and sometimes had mini-panic attacks. I was a sweating demon at the gym! Best benefit for me was the weight loss, but the side effects of feeling like I'm on speed wasn't even worth that. I stopped and switched ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been diagnosed with ADHD symptoms for about 5 years now, when I was 19 years old. Now being 24 years old, having tried Focalin (6 Months), Wellbutrin (1 Year), Adderall (3 Years), and now more recently Vyvanse (1 Year). I have now decided I am going to stop taking Vyvanse. Why? Well after being on stimulants for so long, I have noticed when I don't take my Vyvanse, I get absolutely noth ... Show Full Comment
