  • That is for ADHD? Correct? My son was on Vyvanse and it did not affect his appetite. When my son was on Concerta, it decreased his appetite and I made sure he had a good breakfast and ate small, snacky meals throughout the day and had a good dinner before bed. He wasn't hungry for dinner until about 8 at night.
