I was wondering if anyone else has had success with Vyvanse and Adderall Ir before and/or after? I am a 40 year old male, and I just got back on stimulant medicine after many years not being on them. I have bipolar also and take mood stabilizers/antidepressants. I currently take a Vyvanse at 630 am, but it only lasts til about 3 at best, and then an Adderall in the afternoon. I was thinking of talking to my psychiatrist about taking an adderall at 630, vyvanse at 930 and then adderall again at 6 pm to last til close to bedtime. I already find the stimulants working for my anxiety and depression (since I am calmer), as well as the adhd so I would like it to work all day.

Thanks for the input.

What about just taking only adderall? Maybe the vyvanse just isnt for you?

I wouldn't mind trying whatever. Doc thinks adderall xr will last shorter than the vyvanse, so that is why she prescribed. But we are all different, so who knows. I have another appointment in a week, so will discuss all options.

thanks
