Discussions that mention vyvanse

ADD / ADHD board

My son 10, suffers from small tics exhasberated by the meds. He had a few before we started the meds (anxiety driven) and the meds for the ASHD make them worse. We just backed off the Vyvanse to the smaller dose and his tics have been much less severe.
We found that increasing his dose made the ticks even worse and more noticible. that is why we cut back. next week we see the pdoc and are going to stop the Vyvanse. There is medication for tics but how far do you want to go?Is the Concerta perfect otherwise ?with school? then I would think about quafacine, generic for Tenex , Alot of people use it.
