Vyvanse Drug Information
If you have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), your healthcare provider may prescribe Vyvanse™ (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) to help improve your symptoms. This medication is approved for use in adults, adolescents, and children 6 to 12 years old.
Although many people seem to respond well to this product, information on the drug should be discussed with your healthcare provider before you start treatment because the medication may not be suitable for everyone. Since Vyvanse is a stimulant, it has the potential to be abused. If you have a history of alcohol or drug abuse, be sure to let your healthcare provider know before treatment begins.
The drug, which is typically taken once a day, comes in capsule form and is available in six different strengths. Potential side effects of Vyvanse include headache, abdominal pain, insomnia, and a decreased appetite.
