    Hello Community,

    I thought I would post this because it is becoming all the rage around here. It is called Vyvanse. It is like Adderall in the sense you get that speedy high but this is way more intense. It is perscribed for ADHD & like most ADHD medications, leads to the potential risk for abuse.

    I was wondering if anyone has heard or tried Vyvanse? What are the differences in the two?

    Any Thoughts?

    Until The Next Time

    It is prescribed in the UK too - although this is very rare and I have never met anyone who has used it recreationally. It's just another type of amphetamine - with the amino acid, L-Lysine added to activate it. They work in pretty much the same way to Adderall and are used for the same condition.

    Thank you for the response. I figured they would be very similar but it is becoming increasingly more popular here which is scary. I remember those dark days of amphetamines, and if Vyvanse is the new Adderall thats pretty scary because Vyvanse dosages double or triple Adderall's from what I understand
