Definitely talk to your doctor about the meds. It takes trial and error to find one that works well, with little or no side effects. After trying three of the stimulant meds – one of which was Vyvanse – and having awful side effects, my daughter has been on Strattera, which is a 24 hour med. Big difference! With Vyvanse, our daughter became violent when the meds wore off!!
