ADD medication and sports in youth
Hello - my son is in attentive add. He takes his medication during the week before school. He also plays ice hockey. The last 3 weekends we have given him his medication on Sunday, the day of his hockey games. He takes vyvanse 40 mg. In all of his hockey games he seems very tired and lethargic. He said he feels like he has “led” in his legs. When he practices, the vyvanse is out of his system, and he skates and plays much better. I’m just hate having him feel this way. I was wondering if anybody has experienced this issue. Thank you!!
