I have Fibro, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Mono and ADD...I take 50mg of Vyvanse also. I think you may just need your dosage boosted up to 60mg. I actually find that 50mg works well for me but when my Mono is acting up, my ADD suffers, even when I am medicated.

Perfect example, my Mono has been pretty bad lately and I just now remembered to take my Vyvanse! That won't be good because now I won't be able to wind down tonight until after 11 new jersey time!
