    Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.


    Vyvanse is a stimulant medication. You should not need to take this over a period of time for it to be effective. You should be able to feel more able to control your symptoms within an hour or so of taking the medication.


    Please remember, medication does not cure ADHD. It does not take all the symptoms away, but it should make it easier for you to manage the symptoms.


    Often doctors will start you off on a low dose of the medication and increase your dosage as needed. This way you and your doctor can best determine what dose is right for you.
