  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take 100mg every morning. Besides calming me down, ordering my mind like file folders, giving me a longer attention span and ability to stay focused; it also gives me a mood lift and a bit of extra energy in the a.m. I have afternoon food cravings and will overeat if not careful. I have terrible days if I run out of Vyvanse. I have taken this dose for a few years. It's efficacy has not declined. But, sometimes when I am up for a couple days from hypomanic cycling I will take an extra 30mg. Then running out early is a bitch.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • side effects
    Moderate (Irritability, Loss of appetite, Increased appetite)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: On terms of the side effects, when I take it I have no appetite. But I see this as a positive cause it keeps me from eating all day lol. HOWEVER the withdrawal side effects when it wears off is the opposite so my appetite becomes supercharged. My weight kind of maintains though but if I want to lose weight I eat then take it later in the day so at night by the time it wears off, I'm ready for bed soon.

  • side effects
    Mild (Irritability, Loss of appetite, Increased appetite)
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The positive effect is that it limits my appetite so I don't eat as much. The negative effect is when it wears off, my appetite becomes supercharged. But I've learned to control my appetite after it wears off.
