Started my 7 yr old on Vyvanse and I liked the result. He was still very much himself but just more calm and he executed tasks much easier. However, as much as I liked his reaction to this medicine, he still experienced side effects including facial tics, muscle spasms, and blurred vision. We're going to try Focalin next. Hopefully it works with minimal side effects.

My 15 yr old daughter was taking 40mg. She started having anxiety and anger outbursts. Also caused sleeping issues.

This medication has given me my life back. I'm happier, more focused, complete projects, and retain information quicker. I decided to stop going to school after I received my bachelors degree but now being on this medication, it has given me hope and I am now in graduate school and completing assignments with ease.

Vyvance brought out mood swings / anger outbursts in my 12 year old daughter who has NLVD. We took her off Vyvance, and the mood swings /anger issues were gone, but now she can not focus. We can not find anything that works. We have tried Focalin, Ritalin, Concerta....I just hate to have to do all of this experimentation. She is now 16 and we still have had zero luck. We are concerned for her ... Show Full Comment
