is the Vyvanse chewable tablet IR?

I just saw that there's now a Vyvanse chewable tablet but only up to 60 mg, unlike the original ER, was up to 70 mg.

General Instructions for Use
Take VYVANSE by mouth in the morning with or without food; avoid afternoon doses because of the potential for insomnia. VYVANSE may be administered in one of the following ways:

​Information for VYVANSE capsules:

Swallow VYVANSE capsules whole, or
​Open capsules, empty and mix the entire contents with yogurt, water, or orange juice. If the contents of the capsule include any compacted powder, a spoon may be used to break apart the powder. The contents should be mixed until completely dispersed. Consume the entire mixture immediately. It should not be stored. The active ingredient dissolves completely once dispersed; however, a film containing the inactive ingredients may remain in the glass or container once the mixture is consumed.
​Information for VYVANSE chewable tablets:

​VYVANSE chewable tablets must be chewed thoroughly before swallowing.
​VYVANSE capsules can be substituted with VYVANSE chewable tablets on a unit per unit/ mg per mg basis (for example, 30 mg capsules for 30 mg chewable tablet) [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

​Do not take anything less than one capsule or chewable tablet per day. A single dose should not be divided.

Dosage for Treatment of ADHD
The recommended starting dose is 30 mg once daily in the morning in patients ages 6 and above. Dosage may be adjusted in increments of 10 mg or 20 mg at approximately weekly intervals up to maximum dose of 70 mg/day [see Clinical Studies (14.1)].

There's no such thing as Vyvanse ER. Vyvanse is a prodrug that your body metabolizes (probably in the blood) into the active ingredient.
