I took Vyvance shortly after I was diagnosed two years ago. I never really noticed a difference in my symptoms, I just felt more tired and spaced out, which annoyed my husband too.

I took them for about a month, and after nearly falling asleep at a restaurant with my husband and kids, combined with the feeling I had bugs crawling under my skin, I decided to stop taking it and never went back to the doctor that prescribed it.

I’m only now revisiting the idea of meds after my diagnosis of ‘Inattentive ADD’ has been modified to true ADHD by a new psychologist. He suggested I might benefit from the more traditional medications like Adderall or Ritalin, which my husband is also against, mostly because he’s still skeptical I even have a problem…but that’s a whole ‘nother topic…
