One of my triplets has been diagnosed (after her neuropsych testing) with ADHD, the inattentive type and anxiety. Her neurologist put her on Vyvanse 20mg. Anyone have any experience with this med, good or bad? He does feel that this is from her being a triplet born at 31 weeks premature and she will probably grow out of it. He hopes to keep her on meds for no more than 2-3 years. Her appetite has decreased alittle and she has a slight problem falling asleep but nothing major just yet. I am just curious. If this med doesn't work and the side affects are too much then he wants to switch her to strattera. I am fairly new at all this ADD stuff so any advice would be helpful. I am also almost done with getting one of my other triplets the same diagnosis, ADHD inattentive. They are not hyper just alot of problems staying focused and completing tasks. Thanx!

My oldest son is on Vyvanse and he has had wonderful results so far. I say so far because I have had to change meds every couple of years. Their bodies develop a resistence to it and it stops working. he is also on 20 mg and is almost 14 years old and 95lbs. He may have to go up in dosage due to the fact he has shot up in height this summer. Common side effects for Matt are sleeplessness and decreased appetite. He has text book ADHD. Hyper, impulsive,and inattentive I medicate him for school. Be careful if choosing Straterra. My son developed neck twitching and depression. Your daughter should notice a differnce at school especially if the medication is working. Good Luck....Colleen
