ME was diagnosis with ADD & ODD on 12/1. We saw the pedi y'day and he started her on 30 mg of Vyvanse. The way he and the psychologist explained, Vyvanse is in the same category as Adderall. When RT was diagnosis with ADHD back in April 05 Adderall XR. He didn't do well with it at all. He had very severe mood swings. ME took her first dose of Vyvanse this morning. On the way to school she was crying about how if we moved (we have no plans to) we wouldn't be able to take her bedroom. Her teacher emailed this evening (she was told about ME starting the medications today and asked to be on the lookout for side effects) and said ME was a bit more emotional today. Just now she burst into tears because she left her school bag in the van when we got home. How long would you give the medications to stabilize before calling and saying its not working? I wasn't thrilled about going the Vyvanse route anyway because of it being so closely associated with the Adderall and RT having such a bad reaction to it but agreed to try it. ME is naturally a moody child but she is not one to cry about anything so today has really taken me by surprise.
