... I know this is a fairly new medicine. My dr just prescribed it for ADD in myself, not my child. The website for it is geared toward it being for children. I'd like to hear about experiences with it in adults. ... (15 replies)
... I just started Vyvanse about 2 weeks ago. I'm on 70mg and it works GREAT for about 6 hours. After that, well, it kind of poops out. ... (15 replies)

Adults on vyvanse
Sep 17, 2007
... I was on it (70mg)for 2 months. It didn't help me enough so the dr switched me to Adderall XR 20mgs. I started out lower and slowly worked my way up to the highest dosage of 70mg trying to get some relief but nothing. Now I was only recently (within the past three months) diagnosed ADD. I also have Bipolar, OCD, and Anxiety issues all of which I'm on medication for. But I have... (2 replies)
... w dosage helps. So far no side effects. I think that if I were to have any I'd have them by now, so that's good! Nothing like some of the other meds I've been on in the past!! ... (15 replies)
... I joined this site because I was looking for people on vyvanse . I was on aderall xr , dr. said this would be much smoother . ... (15 replies)
... Daytrana affected me the same way, too. It also made me really irritable. I frequently had to take the patch off after a couple hours. It was like I was getting too much medicine too quickly. (I also think methylphenidate and me didn't mix well.) This is just like Adderall XR to me so far. (15 replies)
... Yes, started it about two weeks ago. Currently on effexor XR 150 in AM and 150 in PM. Tryed Straterra, bad, bad response to that one. Daytrana next, too jitterry. Last Vyvanse. Hit the jackpot with this one. ... (15 replies)
... Several things came to mind while reading your post, I'll address them as I remember them, which means they'll be in no particular order. ... (3 replies)
... As a rule, I tend to stay away from the threads about children, as I have very little practical experience with them. In addition, I know that many medications, including ADHD meds, can have different effects in children than they do in adults. ... (7 replies)
... I'm sure it'll gain popularity in the fall. It's still in clinical trials for adults, but with the consent of a good doc they can try it on ya. Well it's only my 3rd day, and even on 30mg I actually feel a difference. ... (15 replies)
... stephrodz1, Every post you got so far is absolultely correct. They are different possible solutions or good reasons to look for another solution. Let me add another: Dexedrine. I'm very new to Dexedrine - just short of a week into it -after a switch from Adderall which I took for close to three years. There is a few different acceptable ways to slice up Adderall. One...

... arrow bell curve of efficacy. A dose just over the peak begins to adversely affect attention. I previously mentioned that stimulants can cause emotional lability in some children with ADHD. Not true. Stimulants cause emotional lability in everyone when the dose is too high. ... (27 replies)
... leads me to believe you need a higher dose. Adderall titration is usuallly in 10mg increments starting at 20mg for adults. The physician is trying to minimize the initial euphoria while trying to determine lowest effective dose. ... (6 replies)
... Vyvanse or Adderall. I've tried both and they both work. Can't really give much feedback yet for the adderall but it seems to work much better for me. Vyvanse seems to be marketed more for children, so I'm not so sure it's right for me bc it wears off within hours, unlike AddXR. ... (17 replies)
... Anyway, stimulants can indeed cause headaches. I get them sometimes when on my ADHD meds. I think her Vyvanse dose is TOO HIGH. 70mg is the max dose. Was she titrated up slowly, or did he just throw her on 70mg? ... (7 replies)

... I have no children of my own. I know, though I can't name the particular effect off the top of my head, that very often, children react differently to meds than adults do, and as such my complete lack of experience is a serious limitation. ... (1 replies)
