    Comment:
    I have been taking ADHD medications for about 10 years and vyvanse is by far my favorite. I take 50mg of vyvanse as needed. I always feel very productive when taking it and It really helps me focus and get things done without the procrastination. Although, it does what it is supposed to do I do have a few side effects that prevent me from taking it everyday. I have a history with anxiety/depressio ... Show Full Comment

    I have ADD (no hyperactivity) with sleep episodes during the day. This drug has been a life saver for me. I'm lucky in that I have low blood pressure naturally, so it doesn't cause me any issues there. It does help me stay focused without making me feel jittery or drugged. It really did change my life. I feel like myself again.

    I was originally taking Adderall XR, but I wanted something that lasted me through the day. My doctor prescribed me Vyvanse 20MG. After about a month of taking it, I noticed that it wasn't being effective enough. My doctor upped the dosage to 40MG, but when I took that one, I felt dizzy for a few minutes, then through the rest of the day I just felt tired. It didn't help me with my ADD at ...
