Apr 6, 2011 (Started Jun 01, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I experience a calmness. I feel my brain is slowed down, I can organize the files in my head. I focus and concentrate for longer periods of time (but still desire more on-task behavior.) The only side effect I have found is the lack of appetite all day and a ravenous hunger at night when med is wearing off. Resulted in a little weight gain. An additional perk is that this med gives me energy, and a sense of well being about myself that isn't there without it. Note: this is the only ADHD med I have tried. I am satisfied with the efficacy.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Binge eating episodes, Loss of appetite

  • Perceived effectiveness for ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder): Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The pharmacist was hesitant to fill prescription as it is known to not mix well with Parkinson's meds. She was correct. The doctor acknowledged that it was a combination of the PD meds with the Vyvanse that caused me to have such a horrible experience. I was literally a zombie after about 3 days and there were no unexpected benefits. Took about a week after stopping to recover.
Cost: < $25 monthly
