New ADHD Medication has Less Potential for Abuse

This week, the FDA approved a new drug, called Vyvanse, for the treatment of ADHD. The active ingredients in Vyvanse aren't new, but its designed to be absorbed into the body slowly, which is new.
"Drugs that are rapidly absorbed and achieve higher blood levels can produce a euphoric effect. This effect is easier to obtain by crushing short acting tablets and snorting or injecting them."
Vyvnase is a once-a-day pill that, when taken in the morning, is significantly effective until at least 6pm. Read more at WebMD.com.
