How long did it take to come off the Vyvanse and what where the side effects. Do you have an alternative med for ADD? I am on 40mg but so scared as I have two very young children. One thing I know for sure and isn't just a coincidence is when I started taking it January 2012, I was diagnosed with postpartum depression and I am still going through it 2 years and 9 months later. However, my postpartum didn't kick in until 6 mos. after the birth of my son at the exact time I was prescribed the medication. I am in such despair. Any advice, guidance would be most appreciated.View Thread
I was just diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder. My doctor prescribed me Stratera and I had a terrible reaction. I was falling asleep at work and I barely remember anything for the three days I was on it (this even caused me to get set home from work). Now the doctor wants to put me on Vivance, but after research I feel it will do the same thing. Does anyone have any suggestions on a different kind? I have several friends on ritalin and it seems to be working great for them.View Thread
