How can I make the most of my Vyvanse medication for ADHD?
Mar 23, 2019 - 8:03 AM - by TopTaff31
Hi all!

I was diagnosed with ADHD some years ago, but have only recently decided to take my Vyvanse/Elvanse medication. I was initially prescribed 30mg but found that it was too intense, so opted to split my pill into two 15mg doses throughout the day which worked well.

I am now taking one 20mg dose a day, usually mid morning after some non-acidic food, and have found this good also, but I think I may be getting a certain level of tolerance to it: the effects i feel... [Read More]

Things to say and not to say to kids
Mar 20, 2019 - 9:47 AM - by Daniel1970
Interesting, I was just skimming through a quick 61-slide show on MSN about things never to say to kids, and one of them was “you can be anything you want in life”. The reason you shouldn’t say that is because Success = talent + hard work + luck, and Great Success = a little more talent + hard work + a lot of luck.

Been spending a lot of E time. She does go to preschool (public, social emotional, self directed, play based; its solid). E is there for several total hours a day. It's also integrated classrooms, with kids with behavioral and developmental disabilities, with a highly diverse student population--bonus: over 50% of teachers are women of color. Hoping to get her into k at the civil rights academy here. In another three years she'll be able to volunteer with me at Glide or St Anthony's. She turns... [Read More]

I don’t recognize my son anymore
Mar 15, 2019 - 12:19 PM - by BoatHatS
My son has been diagnosed with ADHD and I don’t recognize him anymore. I find myself hating to be around him... he’s very aggressive, laughs maniacally, screams for fun, throws toys at the wall, and finally today he side-kicked his brother.

I try calmly talking to him, but that fuels him even more. For example: He went to go run out into the middle of the parking lot, and his therapist was calmly saying “no (name), you have to stay here to keep your body safe ok?” And he... [Read More]
