Hi. I'm just full of questions today I know!

Has anyone tried Intuniv and Vyvanse together? DS 9, was put on Intuniv a year ago and it did a lot for his impulsivity and control. He would not sit still in class and had outbursts. I wanted a non-stimulent and the dr. suggested that. Now we are having focus problems that interfere with his school work. He always made OK grades but this year they have gone down because he just won't focus in class and often forgets to bring his homework or his books home. So the dr. suggested we add Vyvanse.
