Thank you for sharing this very personal experience. My 7yr old has been taking Vyvanse for a year now. It has helped to settle his active body enough to not be as disruptive in class. However, his grades still suffer due to everything you mentioned. Not to mention the lack of motivation for things that take a lot of time. Or not being able to manage his time on big projects, and teachers who don’t understand or care enough to give extra help or time. I’m hoping that in time my extremely bright young man will learn how to navigate school and life with his ADHD brain and use it as his superpower 🙏🏼❤️
