Is Vyvance Usually Given To Children With Autism. He Also Takes Resperdone And Guancifine.

Needing info on Vyvance and Autism.

Answer

Hi there

I am just going to add a bit to Eileen's answer. We do have information about Vyvance on our site for you to read.

Is the doctor recommending this medication? My son has autism and is taking Risperdal and I have written about our experience on this site. And your son is also taking Intuniv? Is there any particular reason that a stimulant is being added to his medication treatment plan? Kids who have autism may react differently to stimulants. I would ask the doctor about this combination.

Right now my son is taking Risperdal and Celexa and we are having great results. I am going to post about our experience soon.

Let us know what the doctor says. Thank you for your question.
