Hang in there! I haven’t taken Vyvanse but I felt terrible for the first week or two on Adderall. I mean, I felt absolutely amazing on it, but when it started to wear off, I was extremely moody and tired. I also felt like it stopped working. My doc said that meant I needed a higher dosage. When I went up, it started working again, then stopped, so I went up again and it has been pretty good since then although I had to add an adderall instant in the afternoon to cover the whole day. Just keep your doc posted and keep track of how you feel day to day and welcome to the club! I just got diagnosed at 31.
