There are several tests, most of which can be found online to test yourself for ADD. In order to achieve a reliable result, it's important to evaluate yourself honestly and objectively, which can be difficult for some people. Psychiatrists and certain therapists are also trained to recognize symptoms and evaluate ADHD. I'm posting some links to tests online in the link box. The book "driven to distraction" is also an excellent resource.

Will Vyvanse show up as pcp on a drug test?

No. Vyvanse is an ADHD medication and is classified as amphetamines. You will fail a drug test for amphetamines, not PCP. It is highly unlikely to fail a drug test for an illegal drug (cocaine, pcp, etc) by taking a prescription drug. The only example of this occurring is failing for methamphetmine (illegal---crystal meth) when you have only taken ampethamine (legal with prescription---adderall, vyvanse, etc). This depends on the type of test you take. Some tests cannot tell the difference.
