(Vyvanse) was assessed under the European Union's decentralized approvals procedure, led by Britain's medicines watchdog. The application was supported by two European studies and clinical data from the United States.

Seven other EU countries - Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Spain and Sweden - participated, and they have agreed product labels. They will now issue their own national approvals, a process that takes up to three months, Shire said.

I will check with my GP in Dublin to see if I can get it. That's quite positive.

shaney, because of nice guidelines on adhd management you might be expected to try strattera before they trial you on an amphetamine based drug :(
