how does focalin compare to dexedrine or vyvanse?

im on vyvanse and dexedrine booster and that works really well, except for the fact dexedrine is on shortage and i cant find it anywhere. would focalin be a good alternative and is it on shortage? i tried ritalin and it really didnt work well at all for me and had bad rebound effects fo rme, but i heard that focalin is a bit different. would it work well for me?

nothing compares to focalin, it is readily in supply at an affordable cost minus the XR which you wouldn't want anyway

Re: how does focalin compare to dexedrine or vyvanse?

I tried ritalin and hated it (ZOMBIE). I gradually figured out that the reason I hated ritalin was because I have a really low tolerance to stims and the dose was too high. I took a break from dex recently and tried some of the left over ritalin again at a much lower dose, and actually thought it was okay. It wasn't as good as dex while it was working, but it seemed a lot smoother.

If I decide to give mph a real try in the future, should I try ritalin or focalin first?

Let me know if you see another zombie. I've said it before , but a stake in the heart should stop them.

Sir, you are very confused. SHOOT THEM IN THE HEAD!

Your zombie advice is horrible. However I will consult you if I need any help with vampires.

Dexedrine spansules are available, Dexedrine IR is not. You might be able to find some 10mg IR tabs if you REALLY look for them.

It really depends on your area. Call a few local pharmacies and ask them if they are able to fill a prescription before you get one from your doctor.
