Re: Need help finding Dr who treats Adhd In Mckinney with Adderal

Go back to Doctor Young and tell him the truth, that they Vyvanse did not help, but that you took Adderall in the past, and it did work. Whenever there is more than one medication for a condition, a good doctor knows it might take a few tries to find the best one for a particular patient.

He might want you to try a higher dose of Vyvanese first, and that might work.

Vyvanese is newer and significantly more expensive than Adderall. However, there is a feeling that V. is less vulnerable to abuse than A. (So far, research hasn't proven that, but it was the manufacturer's goal.) Which is why some docs have a preference for Vyvanese. Still, the good ones prescribe whatever works best for the patient.
