... The kidneys and liver are what bear the burden of strong, toxic drugs like those, so no doubt the kidney stones are a result of them. This often is ignored by the medical community.

... Hi! Just started with Vyvanse (50mg) too. I got so jittery as well but only lasted for 12 hours. You're not suppose to open the capsule because it's time-release, or unless your doctor approves it.
