I just recently switched from Adderall IR 20mg am 10mg pm to Vyvanse 40mg five days ago. I love it so far, I don't get the intense high that I got when I first started adderall and am perfectly fine with that. It gives me a steady determined focus that I haven't had in quite some time on adderall. I have been getting things done and organized that was far past due! The only complaint I have right now is my sleeping pattern this past week. I have been up until 2-3am and have to be up at 6 for work, but I have been getting crap done at that time instead of aimlessly scrolling through Facebook!
Don't get me wrong adderall work for me for a couple years and I think it did its job for the most part, but it just was t cutting it for me any more! I am so happy my dr agreed to switch it up! I really hope it stays this way!

My old doctor who originally prescribed me Adderall also suggested I try switching to Vyvanse if the Adderall doesn't work and/or has troubling side effects. It worked great at 30mg XR for a while. But it's now about 4.5 months later (much less than your 2 years) and even at as high as 50mg/day, the Adderall has lost it's effectiveness.

do I seem like the kind of person who, like you, would do better on Vyvanse?

Or, if I'm already tolerant to Adderall, would I also be tolerant to the Vyvanse at the same dose level?

When I was on adderall I started on XR and just wasn't cutting it for me! I had terrible crash in the late afternoon! My dr switched me to IR 3 times a day and that worked great for a while!
Adderall IR is much cheaper that XR or Vyvanse. You may try that first and if it doesn't work then try Vyvanse.

Its good that vyvanse is working out for you. IME its very hit or miss.
