  • Perceived effectiveness for Lack of motivation: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Weekly
Advice & Tips: Once again, stopped the Vyvanse. It really makes me unstable because the days after I take it the energy is incomparable to how it was when I took the drug. It also kind of made me really unmindful, I would constantly lose things and feel quite restless on it. I'm trying a drug-less approach to ADD, and its been working great so far.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I need to take a break from Vyvanse. It makes me happy/excited/energetic and it sometimes it is too much for me when I am as depressed and anxious as I am, which makes me feel weird because I should not be happy just when I take it. It is great for motivation but it still takes me a while to start the work/homework I am anxious about. I only took this medication a couple times a week. When I did take it I felt "normal" finally, but I feel like I shouldnt take something to feel normal. Not taking it every day made me feel really unstable as well because of how manic it made me. but hey at least I'm guaranteed to get something done when I take it, whether it is cleaning or starting some school work. BUT Vyvanse does work 100 times better than adderall, and did help me a lot despite all this other stuff I've been saying, but I just cant take it at this time in my life. It really calms my thoughts down and makes it like I never had depression. I would recommend this medication for people that wake up early enough to take it!h
