Concerns: Side effects are less common but can include changes in heart rhythm, chest pain, nausea, heat intolerance, sweating, tremors, difficulty breathing, etc.

2. Vyvanse: Taken once daily with or without a meal; to be taken either as the capsule completely or empty contents of capsule in water or orange juice and drink

Concerns: Some side effects can include blisters, chills, cough, irritability, diarrhoea, joint pains, loss of appetite, sore throat, difficulty sleeping, etc.
