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.
I just start Vyvanse 30mg a week ago. The first day I was in heaven, but that went away. Now I seem to clinch my teeth, have headaches and seem 'out of it' at times. The overeating hasn't stopped yet either. How do I know that I need a higher dose? Is 40 mg ALOT stronger, or not really?

I was born with Spins Bifida & hydrocephalus. I noticed my sleeping patterns in 2007, when I was working. As of recently, I'm falling asleep watching TV, reading, or painting. I'm very concerned, because I'm in a wheelchair and I know how dangerous this could be.
