  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Severe (feel like a zombie, cognitive confusion, listlessness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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
