Question about vyvanse

My son is taking vyvanse. We started at 30 mg and after three months changed to 40 sure to the fact that it was nit working after 2p.m. He has only been on that dose for about 1 month and it doesn't seem to last any is is longer. I'm not worried that it is not working at home, my concern is I have him in basketball which he loves but he doesn't not pay attention there and us not learning anything. Does anyone else have this problem and if so what did you do to fix it? I just would like him to concentrate longer two days week.

Re: Question about vyvanse

Possibly 30 mg in the morning and a small dose later in the day would work better than a bigger dose in the morning. Ask the doctor about that.

Of course, it would mean going to the nurse's office to take medicine during the school day. See how your son would feel about that.

Still, why does he need to learn in basketball? The reason an ADHD child should join a sports team is for exercise and social interaction. As long as he isn't making the coach angry, who cares if he's hyper?
