I think most of the medications for ADD have that side effect as they are stimulants, maybe you can ask your doctor for a short acting medication, vyvanse is long acting and meant to last for 8 hours or so (12 hours for some). Most of the meds have generics also, I tried Ritalin generic because the cost of Dexedrine and adderall, but it didn't work for me at all, but as with all meds it's trial and error. I have now been switched to vyvanse 70mg because the manufacturer shire has a patient assistance program. Good LuckView Thread
I have the same problem and never thought it had anything to do with ADD, now I see I'm not the only one who has sensitive hearing. The TV is always too loud, people cracking knuckles, any type of useless noise, and loud talkers are my main issues. Glad to know I'm not the only one!View Thread
I have the same problem! I've lost jobs from the tardiness. I just started back on vyvanse 70mg. due to financial reasons, I have no insurance and shire has a patient assistance program. I am going to talk to my md about possibly prescribing an immediate release adderall to take as soon as I wake up, my counselor recommended this and she specializes in ADD/ADHD. I understand completely the "late" issue as I have dealt with it my entire life, still working on it!View Thread
