I have been on Vyvanse for over a month at 40 MG. I had been on Adderall prior. Vyvanse does not work as well. Cannot focus, extreme hair loss, and having tics.

Started my 7 yr old on Vyvanse and I liked the result. He was still very much himself but just more calm and he executed tasks much easier.
