Earlier this year I was diagnosed ADHD. My Dr. prescribed me Vyvance. I went up two dosages to 50mg from 20mg. Unfortunately the side effects of frustration and anger outbursts became quite frequent. One day I completely snapped in front of my kids, yelling and throwing things around the house for a few crazy minutes. My wife also commented she noticed these side effects were more often and frightening the kids. I immediately stopped taking Vyvance and my doctor put me on Concerta which I’ve been taking the last 3 months. So far, so good. I realize that different drugs may have different results for each individual but I thought I’d share mine. Not being the scary monster in the family is much more important to me then how focussed I am but hopefully I find the right dosage with the right medication.
