Question Question for those who switched from Adderall to Vyvanse- time off in between?

Quick question for those of you who had success with Vyvanse after switching from Adderall...

Did you take any days off in between the switch.

I tried Vyvanse a few weeks ago with no success (I'm now back on adderall IR). It made me very sleepy/spacey/groggy.

I'm wondering if I might have had a different experience had I taken a day or a few days off in between the two medications.

Maybe not- that may have had absolutely nothing to do with it. But I was just wondering...

I may try Vyvanse again soon, so if it would help to take some time off first, let me know.

It's hard to take much time off, given the severity of some of my symptoms and all the responsibilities in life- it's especially hard to do it in advance of starting a medication that might not work for me- which would mean even more time living with unmanaged symptoms.

However, if it's worth it- if there's a reason it might not work as well right on the heels of adderall, then I'm willing to invest in that experiment.

Thanks.
