What is Vyvanse?
Vyvanse is a pharmaceutical drug used in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and severe binge-eating-disorder (BED) in adults.
Vyvanse is the brand name for the compound known as lisdexamfetamine dimesylate, an amphetamine stimulant medication. Its chemical structure makes it similar to Adderall, another amphetamine stimulant used to treat ADHD.
The company that makes the drug, Shire Pharmaceuticals, claim that their drug medicine is the prescribed branded ADHD medication.
Some people are taking Vyvanse for improving productivity and increasing focus and concentration.
Doctors will decide on the dose according to how it affects you because nobody proceed the same on the drug.
Normaally, they will prescribe a 20 mg dose for two weeks and tell you to come back.
If at the end of the two weeks you report that the drug had little advantage, they’ll increase to a 40 mg dose and repeat.
The highest they will prescribe is 60 mg, and
only if the drug is producing little to no effects at lower doses.
If the drug is still not working, they will usually change you over to either Adderall or modafinil.
Vyvanse also tends to cause liberality and addiction, making it difficult to go without the drug after a while.
