He also says he is having trouble controling his anger.Says he just kinda feels lost and confused and like he is some place else all the time.After taking Vyvanse for 3 years can some of the bad side effects be showing up now?

I've been taking Vyvanse for about a year and I'm 21. I don't know if I was prescribed it because I'm only about 100 lbs, about the weight of a 12 year old, or for some other reason. I didn't know that it was mainly for little kids. It has actually helped me quite a lot though because I can focus, get stuff done, less fidgety and don't feel like there's ants crawling around in my bloodstream anymore.

Well, Vyvanse is generally prescribed for kids 6-12. I think your son may just be getting into that stage where his normal hormones and other body chemistry is affecting the medications and quite possibly bringing on the side effects. I think you should talk with his doctor and see if he/she thinks maybe he needs to switch to another medication or just come off of the Vyvanse. Good luck and God bless.
