Healthcare provider and patient portrayals
In two, 12-week studies of adults diagnosed with moderate to severe B.E.D., Vyvanse was proven to reduce weekly binge days (a day with at least 1 binge episode).
At the end of both Study 1 and Study 2, the adults with moderate to severe B.E.D. who took Vyvanse experienced, on average, significantly fewer binge days per week compared to those who took the sugar pill. The change in binge days per week for adult patients with moderate to severe B.E.D from the start of the study to the end was measured using a statistical measure called the LS-Mean.*
*LS-Mean is a statistical method used in the clinical studies to calculate an average score.
Vyvanse is a federally controlled substance (CII) because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Keep Vyvanse in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse. Selling or giving away Vyvanse may harm others and is against the law.
Tell the doctor if you have ever abused or been dependent on alcohol, prescription medicines, or street drugs.
Concerned about side effects? Talk to your doctor.
You should take Vyvanse once a day in the morning, exactly as your doctor tells you to take it. Vyvanse can be taken with or without food.
