Default Stopping the vyvanse because its pointless

I'm laying bed. Vyvanse gives wakefulness and focus but I'm not interested in anything anymore and I dont want to do anything. Theres no point of taking the vyvanse. I'd rather sleep. I cant multitask on vyvanse.

Maybe I'll take a dexedrine 10mg while in class and for studying but other than that vyvanse doesn't help me.

I'm so sorry you're struggling, Desoxyn Before changing any meds, it's always best to talk about this with your Pdoc. Otherwise there may be trouble. Please take care of yourself. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this

I'm sorry the Vyvanse isn't helping you. Vyvanse makes me not sleep. But I'm really tired when I don't take it. I hope you find something that works well for you.

Switched from Vyvanse to back to Concerta. Tomorrow I'll see if it helps better.

The 36mg Concerta is much better but not as strong as the 40mg Vyvanse so I'll try 54mg next time but that's as high as I'm going to go.

Default Re: Stopping the vyvanse because its pointless

Switched back to Vyvanse again but this time 30mg. I was on 54mg Concerta but I had to take my beta blocker twice a day instead of once a day.

Now I'm on the Vyvanse and take the beta blocker once a day again. It provides a more clear focus than Concerta but I prefer Concerta. Oh well..

Default Re: Stopping the vyvanse because its pointless

Switched to Adderall 20mg XR. It's like a smooth mix between Vyvanse and Concerta. More stimulating than Vyvanse but not stimulating as Concerta to cause fast heart rate. But the dose is too low to know right now. I would probably like 30-40mg XR a day.

The focus may not be as good as 30-40mg Vyvanse.

But Adderall isn't covered so I have to pay for it. I might still pay for it anyways.
