My 10-year-old son has started on Vyvanse 20 mg last Sunday. He has been on it for 5 days now. His teacher has had nothing but good things to say about him in school this week. It is a welcome change after a year of trial and error in finding the right med. He has tried Adderall, Concerta, and Strattera. The first two did well the first week, and than dropped off, so we are hoping that this one will last. My question is how long does it usually last in your experience? I read that it typically lasts for 12-14 hours, but I noticed with him it is about 7. It gets him through school so far, but I have a hard time getting him through his homework at home. I know this is the lowest dose, and was thinking of asking his psychiatrist if he would benefit from an afternoon dose. Any suggestions on this? He has not shown any side affects so far. His appetite is fine and he is sleeping fine. Just wish it lasted a little longer.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
