Re: Adult taking ADHD Medication and have a ? PLEASE

Himmy,

Generic Adderall is definitely cheaper than Vyvanse. It will have many of the same effects, as 75% of Adderall is the same medication as that found in Vyvanse, but because 25% is a slightly different ingredient it's known to cause more side effects than Vyvanse. As I understand it, it also doesn't have the gentle ups and downs that Vyvanse gives you. It tends to give great effect quickly, but when it's used up, it drops you pretty hard, this is why people often call it the Adderall crash.

Adderall is a powerful medication that has helped countless people, but unfortunately you won't know if you can tolerate it until you try it. If you do try, start low, 5-10mg, and work up slowly from there, this should help with the roller coaster effect.
