    My son is 8 years old. He's been on vyvance for over a year in a half. He's been on the 20mg academically we raised him on 30mg for a month it shoot his blood pressure up terrible, so now we decreased it back. I've notice he's became irritable grumpy hard to deal with when he gets out of school. It helps him focus but his attitude is driving us crazy. He sweats bad but his dr claims its the safest one for kids. I don't know which direction to go. Tempted to switching drs or go with a psychiatrist for help since I'm not having much luck with his high blood pressure isn't good when its the numbers of an adult than that should be a flag. My son is very sweet until the past 3 months. It worked great for the first year but she's determine to keep him on it. I know they're thousands of ADHD meds so I'm ready for a change were the ones suffering not the school nor the dr. I've read reviews and now see were not the only ones dealing with the same issues. Is there any other safer meds for ADHD I know all kids are different.
