Vyvanse helps control her ADHD symptoms. She does the rest.
Vyvanse improved attention and reduced the symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity. That's it. The rest is up to her.
In a 4-week clinical study of teens aged 13 to 17 with ADHD, once-daily Vyvanse improved the symptoms of ADHD in teens:
- Vyvanse has been shown to improve attention and reduce the symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity
Your teen's doctor may prescribe Vyvanse as part of a total treatment program which may include counseling or other therapies.
Who should not take Vyvanse?
Your teen should not take Vyvanse if he or she:
- Is taking or has taken within the past 14 days an anti-depressant called a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI)
- Is allergic to, or had a reaction to other stimulant medicines
Vyvanse may not be right for everyone
Before starting treatment for ADHD with Vyvanse, tell your teen's doctor about all health conditions (or a family history of), including:
- Heart problems, heart defects, or high blood pressure
- Mental problems, including psychosis, mania, bipolar illness, or depression
