Do you have any symptom?

Since when are you having it?

What is your query about Vyvanse?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have struggled since I was younger with being able to focus. I am 62 years old now, however, I still work as a trainer, which requires me to constantly be able to focus on curriculum. I should have went decades ago and dealt with this, but I just thought it was me...there was a reason that I had to read something three times and sometimes out loud so that I would pay attention and comprehend what I was reading. I plan to work three more years and have decided that maybe I do need something to help me.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Though Vyvanse is used in your age group but there is risk of cardiovascular side effects.
There can be rise of blood pressure, irregular & serious rhythms of heart.
Liver & kidney functions should be checked too.
So it needs to be taken under supervision of doctor & at the lowest possible dose.
I feel you should take an evaluation by neurologist for your symptoms.
He can assess your condition & then proceed for appropriate treatment.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
