45 yrs , diagnosed with severe ADHD 6 weeks ago. Started on 30 mg vyvanse, Dr. Bumped me up to 70 mg vyvanse within a couple of weeks. Been on 70 mg vyvanse for 3 weeks, still struggling with only getting about 6 hrs out of the vyvanse, it takes 1 to 2 hours to take effect, then wears off within 6 hrs, around 2 pm - saw my dr. Today he lowered my vyvanse to 60 mg per day and added 1, 10 mg adderall to take in the morning, then take my vyvanse 3 to 4 hrs after the adderall to get a longer coverage.. Any information/experience with these two meds will help. I'm trying to get them tweaked so they work best for me. My Dr. Said if it were up to him he would have increased my vyvanse, but FDA says no more than 70 mg per day... it's been a great benefit when it's working, when it wears off (way too early in the day) I crash and am very tired.

Also, I have read that it can cause depression, I already have depression and anxiety for the last 7 years, can anyone comment on this? Does it make it worse? Thank you x
