Just Started Vyvanse - Looking for Feedback
ADDwarrior5 posted:
I'm a 38 year old male and I was on 54 - 72mg of Concerta for a few years and recently started getting really bad headaches and chest pain. My doctor switched me over to Vyvanse, starting with 40mg once daily. I just took my first dose about an hour ago, and will be providing reviews / feedback for the benefit of other, and myself, but I am also looking for feedback from others who have taken Vyvanse. I've read some of the reviews and frankly they are scary in some instances but, everyone reacts differently. I am beyond frustrated with my ADD.

Everyone experiences these meds differently but I would gather that your experience may be similar to others who gave switched to Vyvanse that it is smoother than Concerta - less jolty going in, no crash at the end.
