Does anyone know how long this drug lasts? I heard that this one is possibly lactose free. Anyone know? I'm at my wits end!

Theoretically Vyvanse lasts 12 hours, but it could be different for some kids. It depends on how fast he metabolizes meds.


Daytrana also has no lactose.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.

NAK

Yes, my ds is currently on daytrana. its frustrating because with him, it takes 3-4 hours to kick in rather than the 2-3 most people state.
