  • Side Effects
    None
  • 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
