My son started Vyvannse around 7 or 8 and he is now 16. It has been a lifesaver. However, last year we had some repeat problems and his dose had to be increased. The dose has to be high enough to effectively help with the symtoms. He is now on 50. My one a day. Prior, it was 30mg and then 40. I would ask for his dose to be re-evaluated, but I would suggest keeping him on vyvannse. In the long run, you will see and know the difference. I’d give it 3 months before switching, but I sought you will need to. Best of luck! It’s one heck of a journey 😊
