My son lost 8 pounds the first month he took these pills. He takes one 20 mg. Vyvaant pill a day. He was 120 pounds now is 112 exactly a month later. Pill helps his adhd and he has had NO SIDE EFFECT!!!! That’s is the best part of it all since in the past he has taken lots of different pills and all had bad side effects.
All stim meds have a appetite suppressant quality. You should like Vyvanse. It lasts much longer and is a smoother medication. You shouldn't notice the ups and downs as much. Problem with all stim meds is that when you come off them at night you can be very hungry. That is the time you have to be very careful if you want to lose weight. It is not a magic pill. It still is calories in and calories out. Because you should be less hungry during the day, it should be easier to cut down on snacking. Get a good healthy high protein breakfast in the morning. Oh, exercise will help both your adhd and diet! Well, so would a program like weight watchers.
The main thing is don't expect overnight miracles! That is not healthy. Slow and steady. Don't weigh yourself every day. And, ya, if you follow the above...you should lose a lot of weight. Just remember, the pill alone can't do as much for you as you and the pill working together. Hope this helps. Feel free to repost if you have any questions. I check this site fairly often.
