Comment:
I am a 59 year old woman who has had nervous issues all my life. The concept of an ADD med somewhat scared me, but agreed to try it after several sessions with a mental health professional. I can't begin to tell you the difference it has made in keeping my emotions level. It didn't change my personality, but I am now able to better control the extremes in my emotions. I am far more guard ... Show Full Comment

I have tried adderall and ritalin (spelling?) in the past and I could not stand taking them. It's hard to explain, and maybe some people reading this might understand what I mean, but those just made me feel dry and dirty. Taking vyvanse for my ADHD as an adult has helped me so much. I wish they had a generic version since it's so expensive but the coupons help. I would caution not to use ... Show Full 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.) My incredibly "helpful" doctor told me th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
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. In the past these meds either make me zone out (strattera) make me too speedy (aderoll) or make shy and nervous (focalin). Vyvanse slowly kicks in and now I hardly notice it, which is good, and Most importantly I can think straight ... Show Full Comment
