I take my 30mg dose about an hour before I get to work, and then my focus is great for the next 5 or so hours. In total, lasts around 6-7 hours with minimal side effects. Of those listed on this website, the only one I sometimes experience is loss of appetite. I get grea ... Show Full Comment

First starting/ restarting there are some things that'll go away with time. I sweat a lot to start with on Vyvanse I sweat even more. Lasts about 10-12 hours max for me and I take 40mg's. Some days like weekends i ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    was prescribed 20mg for ADD in 2012. After 3 days of taking it i was sent to the hospital for having severe seizures, Panic attacks, dehydration. This drug is dangerous in my opinion. It's simply the prodrug dextroamphetamine. I feel like it's been put on the market simply for money. Thank god for Methylphenidate 20mg (ritalin) It has completely changed my life.
