My 11 year old son started a 30 day med trial of Vyvanse after a year on Adderal XR (even with a noon booster of regular Adderal, it just wasn't lasting through homework time).

He has a serious sleep disturbance the first 3 nights, and began having significant mood swings by day 4 (very out of character for him), and reported feel ... Show Full Comment

As a nurse i have been taking vyvanse for almost a year now and have seen so many improvements in myself, i used several other medications, the largest drawback of this medication in the dry, dry mouth.

A Nurse’s Personal Experience: I've been taking Vyvanse for the last month, prior to that I was on Effexor XR. Effexor gave me too much in the morning & then tapered off to no effect around 3pm. Vyvanse has no noticeable ups or downs for me. I don't get jittery at all & I think that my anxiety has actually decreased since I stopped the effexor. When my vyvanse wears off abou ...

I was not happy with this medication. I did not feel I had the control and concentration I needed. I also had a horrible taste in my mouth from it, along with the worst dry mouth!
