I have a 8year old son that was diagnosed with ADHD a year ago and also has Simple Tourette's, his motor and vocal tic's come and go. My son has been on 20mg of Vyvanse the past 7 months, it does help him to calm down and focus at school but he is so moody and irritable at home that I want to try another medicine. We tried Concerta and Dexedrine last fall and he did not do well on either. I just spoke with his doctor and she said we might want to try him on Focalin pr Adderal. I am really hoping one of these will be the best fit for him and we will get our happy boy back. Anyone have any similar concerns on Vyvanse? We also tried Intuniv but it did not help with his ADHD and just made him so sleepy in the afternoons.
