  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I started off by taking Vyvanse 30 mg once daily and it worked great for the first month or so. I felt after some time that my dose could of needed some adjustment so my docotor increased my dose to 50 mg daily. This dose I felt was the dose that initially gave me most benefit from. After about another month or so I started to once again become more and more fatigued during the days and it became harder and harder to concentrate. My dose was just last week changed to take Vyvanse 40 mg once in the mornings (7:30 am) and around 3 pm take a second dose of 20 mg. Since I have started this new regimen, I haven't noticied any improvement and I feel that my fatigue is only getting worse. I now have daily headaches and waves of nausea and dizziness. And also the tips of my fingers and toes feel always constantly cold.

    Any suggestions???
