Has anyone switched from Adderall to Vyvanse? Any thoughts on effectiveness or side effects of either over the other? Thanks!

Vyvanse is more effective for me. I must drink enough water to avoid side-effects. Also have to remind myself to eat because Vyvanse zaps my appetite. I'm on a low dose - 30mg - and find it to make a world of positive difference.

Oh and I’m also on Wellbutrin, so that probably contributes to the RSD

I have not. My doctor wanted to put on Vyvanse but my insurance does not cover it apparently and she said it can be expensive. I am currently on Adderall but I am curious to try Vyvanse.

I love Vyvanse so much more than Adderall but I switched because yes, it’s extremely expensive.

Nope. Only tried adderall and concerta - forget the rx chemical name. Have never heard of Vyvanse actually...

I'm really interested in trying Vyvanse. I've been on Adderall for about two years and it works, but not as well as I'd like it to. Everything I hear is either really positive or really negative though so I'm a little nervous about it.

I stayed with Adderall. I know people who lost their appetite and experienced weight loss because of the medication. Fortunately, I am good with it.

Yeah he switched me bc I said there were a couple days where I didn’t feel it working. I may go back to the Adderall if this is not as good or even if it’s the same. Vyvanse is more expensive due to lack of a generic.

My insurance doesn't cover vyvanse so I have not. However, I will tell you that I hear really good things about it.

I usually don’t take it on weekends and even had a 10-day period in August where I didn’t take it.
