 It is to adderal what concerta is to ritalin pretty much.

We should be in awe at the gift of having children rather than obsessed by our rights as a mother!

This. My son ended up punching a window out just hours after taking it. He was 5. It may have been the Vy but it may not have been.

My son is on it and we love it.  Ask your doctor about a discount card.  It will save you up to 50% of your out of pocket cost.

Every child is different.  You may have to play with his meds to get the right one and dosage.  My son was aggressive on Adderall, but Vyvanse is by far the best he has been on.  He is 16 now, diagnosed at 7.  We have been through several med changes.  :)

Yeah we got that but I'm super broke and it only brings it down to 12 (half his 25 copay) so I have to wait until thursday. But that way I can get his clonidine adjusted before we start the vyvanse.
