Hi, I have ADHD, Inattentive type and NOS learning divisibility. Whats best for me? Concerta, Adderall XR/IR, Vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) Ritalin, Methylphenidate??? :)

Unsure. The only way to know is to find out what response you had in the past and what your physical condition is now. Your doctor can help you figure this out.
Work with your . psychiatrist to determine which preparation reduces your symptoms optimally. Try a long-acting delivery system of methylphenidate, then of mixed amphetamine salts, or vice-versa, at a low dose, then titrate up slowly to maximum effect. If side effects preclude optimal dose, repeat with the other stimulant. If you can't tolerate either, an adjunctive non-stimulant may help. See CHADD.org.

I'm prescribed Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) but the copay is too expensive for me. Ritalin didn't work. Is Adderall an alternative safe to bring up with my psychiatrist?

Possibly. On the other hand, if it works well for you, check out the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) website. Pharmaceutical companies often have coupons available that can help to defray the cost of co-pays. Good luck. Read more...
Yes. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is an amphetamine derivative as well as adderall. If there is a history of addiction vyvance has least addictive potential due to its delivery system. If addiction an issue consider strattera although I have had a so so response with it in my clients. I like the long acting stimulants in adults. Read more...
Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) Agree. Keep in mind that Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) equivalent is the brand name, which is also expensive, but, there is generic Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to try which is cheaper but not long-acting like vuvanse.

Adderall has been helping me with my illness but I can't sleep. Would vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or ritalin be a better option and still give euphoria and clear thoughts?

Oh,my. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) & Methylphenidate products are not intended to produce euphoria. Please call your psychiatrist ASAP if you are experiencing a sense that you can hang the moon & set the stars, because it may have triggered an episode of hypomania when added to your Prozac (fluoxetine).I don't know your family history or whether your depression. started before puberty, but some mood disorders reveal themselves at your age. .

I have been on ritalin for adhd for 4 years and I change to vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) tomorrow, is there anything I should know before taking vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)? Thanks

The equivalent dose . of Amphetine is 1/2 the dose of Methylphenidate, branded Ritalin. Multiply ½ of your current total daily dose of MPH x 3 for your equivalent dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). You may do well on less because it works for 12-14 hours & has very little " rebound" as it wears off. Max. adult dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is 70 mg/day. Onset of action is 1 ½ -2 hours, so you might take it earlier. Side effects are same as MPH's. Read more...

Can you explain to me ritalin crash compared to Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and other ADHD medications?

There are only two. stimulants, methylphenidate & Amphetamine. Since 2000, multiple delivery systems of each have been produced. Each differs in onset of action, time of peak clinical effect & duration of action. Longer & more consistent drug delivery gives better symptom control & reduces symptoms of "rebound" ADHD, irritability, emotional lability & the "crash" noted by some teens & adults as the effect wears off.

I am taking Adderall XR for a month now from 10 mg and increasing to 30 mg. However I have been having too many side effects, will ritalin (methylphenidate) la help?

Possibly. It depends on what side effects you are noticing. The stimulant medications are very similar and there are some effects you can see in all, such as decreased appetite. There are genetic differences in the way individuals respond to meds, even if similar, and sometimes it takes a few tries to find the one that works the best for you. Read more...
