What meds are your small ones on? Is it working?

Do you choose herbal things instead? any luck?

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

My daughter is on day 2 of vyvanse 30mg. She is 10yrs old. She said it helped her yesterday but her throat and stomach hurt. She is unable to swallow a pill so I disolved in crystal light.

When I got home her eyes were so dilated. She seemed to have high energy "busy" as my husband described. She had a little trouble falling asleep last night. she did say that she felt like she could hear directions better and she was able to finish her math work in the alotted time in class. (only has happened one other time since the school year)

Today I put her med in applesauce hoping that it might help with the throat issue.

Anyone else here know anything about vyvanse? This is all new to me as well.

Gabriella started on Vyvance. It made her a zombie, and she seemed depressed, and she often talked about death. She is currently on respidone, and doing very well!

We did not try herbal, but we did change the way we eat. We have cut back on gluten, Gabriella hardly ever has bread, except the gluten free bread that my dad makes. We also avoid artificial dyes.

Pierce is on Vyvanse 40mg. He's 10 and ahd been on it for almost a year now. It has worked wonders for him!!

We didn't try anything else, but we did change what we eat. We're all eating healthier and that seems to help him too.

We tried herbal but it did nothing for Lacey.. Praying day #2 on Vyvanse goes well... I'm on it and it has done wonders for me... No that I think of it it has taken me about a month to get use to it.. I'm starting to feel more like myself.

Thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy!!
