Intunitiv and Vyvanse

My 11 year old son was taking Adderall 50mg and Clonidine 0.1 mg, but now he is taking Vyvanse 50mg and Intunitive 1mg. He has only been on Intunitiv for a few days and is complaining that his vision has become a tad bit darker. It's like everything he sees is darker. It takes him a moment to focus in on things that are more than 5 feet away. Would this be considered apart of being dizzy or is this just normal? Maybe its just going to take awhile for the meds to work.

Both of my daughters who are 9 and 6 have been on Intunitiv for over 2 years now and have moved all the way up to the max dosage of 4 mg. They have complained of their eyes hurting and it can cause dizziness at times. I was concerned at times of my youngest one complaining about her eyes that I took her to a eye doctor and found out that the medication causes the eyes to dilate when its taken and also causes the eyes to be more dry, so he recommended for her to use a eye drop that you can buy over the counter just to use when they bother her. It seems to help most of the time. I will say that the Intunitiv is a great drug for children with ODD and ADHD combined.

Patricia Quinn, MD responded:
Be sure to report all side effects that your child experiences to his prescribing physician. It does not sound like what he is describing is part of being dizzy, but more like a change in his vision. This could be a problem with dilation as discussed in the previous reply but I would have a physician check it out.
