Advice & Tips: As I mentioned, since I was truly bipolar II, this medication didn't work for me, but it just increased my hypomanic symptoms and gave me anxiety and high blood pressure. Another issue with this medication is that my doctor told me that it was safe to take this medication because even though it was similar to adderol, it had a different molecular structure that only worked if it was swallowed. Thus it couldn't be abused The problem with that rationale is that a meth addict's brain is addicted to meth, a similar structure to vyvanse and adderol. Thus taking it confuses the brain, and it ends up hurting you more than helping you. So if you are truly add/adhd and not a meth addict, then it will probably work great for you. But do not fall in the whole I was in.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
