My 11 year old son has recently been switched to Vyvanse 20mg after being on a combo of Aderral, Risperdal and Lexapro for a long time. We have been able to taper off of the Risperdal (which he was given originally to help with the side effects of Aderral and an additional dose for sleep at night) and he seemed to do well. He was doing ok but then began to appear angry and argumentative. Over school break we decided to take him off of Vyvanse (but continue Lexapro) to see if we would notice any change. He seemed to do really well and was once again happy and easy to redirect. He went back to school with just Lexapro and did well but now I am again noticing the ADHD behaviors - figetting, easily distracted etc. I understand that he needs the medication but I hate to see the anger come back :( HELP!
