My dd 12 is on medication, Vyvanse for ADHD, (and High functioning ASD)my dr. told me won't impact her development at all.I was kind of expecting her to get her period by now, she had not. I know all kids are diff, but my older dd has way more developed chest, and got her period at 11and half, I'm just wondering if anyone knows or had any experience with that.

A quick google tells me there have been concerns regarding vyvanse and puberty, it isn’t yet clear what the outcome is.

FYI, adhd can also impact puberty. Or rather, whatever is causing the adhd can have an effect on pubertal development as well.

Either way 12 is early to worry I think.
