Ok, so Ms. difficult child has been off Vyvanse for one week and life is actually more pleasant in some ways. She has much less irritablility and if she does gets angry, she seems to be much easier to reach and rein in. What is going on here? She has always been hyper way off the charts and still is, but maybe she has matured??? She has been taking stimulants for 2 years. She was really ill with a fever, vomiting etc last week so I pulled the Vyvanse because she was so sick. I haven't put her back on it yet. We are on spring break and took a 8 hour car trip and she was good. She watched movies, slept and was well behaved. So I have yet to see what she will be like without the Vyvanse in a school setting, but just my observations of her over the last week, I would like to try. She's so much nicer overall and seems happier. Of course that could be the fact she is out of school. It has me suprised and a little perplexed. neuropsychologist exam scheduled for 3/31. Should I send her without the stimulant or with? I am going to call the psychiatric dr this week and talk to him.
