A concise, evidence-based medical tool that saves you money


Does Vyvanse (Lisdexamfetamine) work better than Adderall (Mixed amphetamine salts) in treating symptoms of inattention and focus in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in my child or teenager?


MedHead Confidence Score: 2
Amount Saved: $300 cost of Vyvanse per month post


MedHead Message:

This meta-analysis shows that overall, Adderall and Vyvanse have a similar improvement in functioning for the child and teenager. Save the money and start with Adderall. You’ll save $280 per month which works out to a decent car payment you now have instead of feeding the healthcare pig!
