Comment:
Nothing works like an amphetamine for my ADHD. Unfortunately I can't seem to take them without obsessing over getting high off of them. Something in me just loves speed. I've tried Strattera for the past 1.5 years after getting seriously out of control with an Adderall prescription. I think I convinced myself that it was working well and that it was all I needed, but recently it became ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Vyvanse was like a miracle drug when I first started taking it; I could really concentrate on my work and I was no longer "scatter-brained." After nearly a year though, my intense focus made me very irritable. I would scream at my family for no known reason and began to have serious problems controlling my anger (it was more like rage.)

After 15 years of being on and off these meds, from Ritalin to aderoll, focalin, concerts, and strattera, I have finally found a med that works like it's said to.

Vyvanse slowly kicks in and now I hardly notice it, which is good, and Most importantly I can think straight ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The medication allows me to focus and get my school work done and keeps me awake for school, but the medication makes "the little things" become a huge issue. While on Vyvance my apatite gets cut by 75%, my ability to notice obvious things (e.g. a negative sign in a math equation) gets worse, and it takes longer to decide on stuff. In terms of long term effects: my memory has gotten wors ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking Vyvanse for over 4 years, closer to 5 years. I stay on task and I get more done using this drug than before. My wife can tell when I do not take the drug because of mood swings or just the way I react to things.
