    When I 1st began taking this medication it caused me to have and upset stomach but that only lasted a few weeks and was sporatic.

    I have been on every stimulant out there from adderall to Vyvanse and after several months they eighter stopprd working or they did not work at all and had some bad side effects. This drug simply works. Ive been on it for five years now and I only had two dose adjustments during yhat time. I started out with 25mg twice daily and now im on 40mg twoce daily. This drug is very effective.

I finally talked with my doctor after doing my research and reading raw user reviews about this medication and i finally ... Show Full Comment
