My daughter has autism and ADHD 5 year old girl. Love her so much, but her hyperactivity interferes with her learning and everyday activities.
My doctor gave her Vyvannse 20mg to start on. She is currently on Risperdal, but it is not working for her. She is to hyper and going backwards in her learning than forward. I changed neurologist and this one suggested Vyvannse but wants her to continue the Risperdal until he can take it out little by little. She tried before Strattera, but it made her too hyper and it looked like she drank 'reb bull' and 'coffee' 100 percent and was starting to get crazy on me. So then i stopped that med fast and am hoping for this one to work...
