She has experienced NO side effects from taking this medicine. I accidently forgot to give her the ... Show Full Comment

    My son, 14, has been taking Vyvanse for the past 8 months for his ADHD. We have tried Concerta, Ritalin, Adderall & Strattera. With all of these other meds he showed an increase in aggressive behaviour - Strattera and Adderall were the worst. With these other medications, he was also very zombie-like and never wanted to do anything. When my son starting taking Vyvanse, I noticed an immediat ... Show Full Comment

    Can't believe how much BETTER I am doing on Vyvanse; I was on Adderall XR and was experiencing horrible side effects, duration wasn't long enough; etc...but with Vyvanse- nothing. I can eat again, I'm not moody, I am able to focus at work. I recommend this product to everyone

    My 8 year old daughter was taking Strattera for ADHD for several months before changing to Vyvanse. Within one week of starting this med, she began having unusual eye movements, later diagnosed as Tourette's, most likely brought out by the Vyvanse. My daughter has been off Vyvanse for over one month with no improvement of the Tourette's. We now have to see a pediatric Neurologist(more $$ ... Show Full Comment
