Is there a generic equivalent for Vyvanse 70mg? How similar are Vyvanse 70mg & Ritalin SR 20mg? I have good insurance, but the RX Brand copay is still $60 per month. Thanks.
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no generic available for Vyvanse. It is a new medication, and therefore will not have a generic for several years to come. Both Vyvanse and Ritalin-SR are medications that treat ADHD by stimulating the central nervous system (CNS). That being said, they do work slightly differently, so there is no way to say that a certain dose of Vyvanse is equivalent to a certain dose of Ritalin. I hope this helps!
Best of luck,
