I am confussed because drugs.com sites Lisdexamfetamine as Generic for Vyvanse, however, my pharmacy tells me that Vyvanse will not have a generic until 2023. I would like to not pay the premium price if a generic is really available. please advise.
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) is a prescription medication that is approved for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults and in children age 6 to 12 years old. It belongs to a group of medications known as amphetamines.
Vyvanse is manufactured by Shire US. Vyvanse is currently protected by a patent that prevents any generic Vyvanse from being manufactured in the United States.
