adderall mg vs vyvanse mg?

Has anyone tried both adderall and vyvanse? I was wondering how the mg of the two compare. Like what mg of adderall would compare to 50mg vyvanse? Any experience with the two please reply!

Re: adderall mg vs vyvanse mg?

Vyvanse:Adderall dosing. Vyvanse is 30% amphetamine and 70% lysine (amino acid/protein). Since Vyvanse is metabolized hepatically via digestion it takes smaller amounts of amphetamine to acheive similar results of oral amphetamine (Adderall and Dexedrine).


Similar in many ways, your mileage may vary. My experience is that Vyvanse is 100% consisent in how it works. Reaches the max level in 4-5 hours then starts to fall off. Adderall XR is not as consistent but when it works well it can work a little longer for me given the release profile of the medication.

Unlike many on this forum, I tend to like Adderall a little more than regular Dexedrine/Vyvanse. Gives me a little more of a kick in the butt to get motivated.
