I can't remember exactly how long I've been on Vyvanse. But I'd say it's pretty effective for me. I have really stubbled with the loss of appetite and nausea recently.

I also lost 35 lbs and could afford to at the t ... Show Full Comment

Vyvanse did help me but I as a person with Aspergers, I hate the feeling of being drugged, and vyvanse made me feel drugged. I stopped taking it cold turkey a year ago. Even though I am slightly tired during the day, I am much happier without any meds except for my allergy meds. I also stopped seeing my psychiatrist a year ago because I no longer trust psychiatrists anymore as the ones that I&# ... Show Full Comment
