I have s very stubborn teenage boy who tested as ADHD when he was 12. He thought the whole test was s scam and the pharmacutical companies were just trying to medicate kids and make $$. I knew the low dose Vyvanse would help him so I snuck it in applesauce, orange juice, cream cheese, anything he was having for breakfast. It made a big difference! I was happy, school was happy, grades,social relationships and behavior improved! He never seemed to notice it. Other parents have told me they wished they did this so their kid wouldn’t feel different. He is 14 now and has no idea he’s been on meds. We don’t give it to him on weekends because he needs sleep and food at his age.
