To read more about how it works, visit this blog post on Vyvanse. To read the press release on Vyvanse being released in Canada, please view it here. This blog has several articles on Vyvanse, but my favorite is the one where my readers have shared their experiences with Vyvanse over comments at this time about whether Vyvanse works. My son who is 5 and recently diagnosed started taking Vyvanse about 2 weeks ago.
We started him off on 20 mg and put him on 30 mg today. Teachers noticed less impulsivity and focusing improvement on him being on 30 mg. We also noticed that it took a longer time before Vyvanse started to wear off. We are currently on wait list at your office but would very much want information if there should be something you are aware of that we should keep our eyes on for the next couple of weeks.
Has there been any report on downhill effect of Vyvanse? Our pediatrician is not well versed on the ADHD meds and at one point I went back to him to prescribe my son 20mg that he did not know is the lowest dosage available in Canada. Hello Joanne, As we are reading your comments regarding the benefit of does increase from 20 mg to 30 mg which we are currently in the same situation with our 6 years old son, we wonder if you have experienced side effects with the higher does. We are a kind of worried of side effects with higher does.
Can you tell us if you have experience any changes with the 30mg other than improvement academically in his concentration span while he is doing his home work at home? I have my 11 year old son on vyvanse 40 mg and the only side affect is lack of appetite during lunch and some irrability in the morning. We managed to get free vyvanse through our Doctor in Canada he gave us coupons. When I see posts like this, it makes me wonder what is wrong with the parents. Since the brain is developing at this stage in life, you are ensuring that your child will never be able to function without medication.
You are making decisions that will follow your child for the rest of their life.
If you were willing to input the time and energy towards proper parenting rather than just shoving medication down their throats you could work towards curbing whatever negative symptoms your child is showing. Of course ADHD is a difficult thing to work with I was diagnosed a few months ago and am now on medication [Age: 19] and I wish the diagnosis had come earlier so that I could have developed coping strategies and understood why I had so much difficulty in school. Unfortunately you do not know me or my child or the pain we have gone through to help him with his ADHD.
You are correct that year olds do have high energy and difficulty focusing. You tell me what to do when my son is throwing himself into the wall because he is so overwhelmed with energy that even after running in the park all day and doing high energy activities are not enough to help my son to sit for a ten minute meal. Please do not presume that I am disabling my son when I am giving him tools to be able to sit in a classroom and do seat work with all the other students. I have, not only through my children, but through my own personal experience.
If you want to know about disabling for life, I can tell you about it.

I had ADD, but when I was a kid nobody knew. I was miserable growing up. I often wonder where I would be now if I had been treated as a child. I was a figure skater, who was always too distracted during practice. My house is pretty much a mess most of the time and I forget to follow up on my kids when they are missing homework etc. And, thank God for cell phones and technology, I can finally remember appointments, and remember to pay my bills.
Both of my grown sons, one 26 and the other 33 have struggled ADHD their entire lives,. As a trained behavioral modification professional, a person with ADHD, and the mother of two individuals all of whom are diagnosed with this terrible disease I can make clear concise informed opinions about the medication verses behavioral modification choices for children that are offered, Iknow you are wrong and right.
If you require the medication as adult after receiving help without medication during childhood then you were lead down the wrong path for so many important years. They most likely had an unstuctured or poor excuse for behavioral models coming from the individuals teaching or raising them. The real, healthy, and safe answer is to try structuring their lives first.
If they are unsuccessful they can and should try taking a low dose of medication and by all means continue how they are treated or raised. For an I individual, of any age, medication is not the right answer. The real problem in nearly all of the cases I have seen coming into school, with a diagnosis of ADHD, and are already on drugs, the problem is related to the home life. A much better solution would be, prior to giving medication, would be to truly examine the home life.
Determiing what goes on in most homes of children diagnosed with ADHD, is that the parents never put into effect the actual practice of raising the child. Many parents today use things like tv, video games, or computers to kieep the child busy and out of their hair.
What happened in the past and never should have changed is the idea of raising the child, instead of pushing them toward devices to keep them busy. This misuse of and trend toward keeping the child out of the parents hair has gargantuanly changed the behaviors of the structor of the family.
Our parents, most likely talked to their children as individuals and supported the school system. The children today, in mos of the cases I hsve witnessed that are being diagnosed with ADHD are desperately need of good role models in and out of the classroom. But first they need parents to teach their child appropriate behaviors and stick to being in their lives to work with the child, family, friends, and especially the teachers to raise them as a unit.
Nurturing and raising upright citizens would be the norm as it was years ago. BUT… There are true children out there with ADHD and for them behavior modificstion along with medication is the only true way to help the child to pay attention and have any Chance of learning and acting at a level at which they can be helped to learn how to deal with the true formalities of living into adulthood, having learned selfcalming, appropriate choices.
Medication is not the answer to how to raise a child, but working as a caring community that as the saying goes It takes a comminity to raise a child.
