It can be tough to get used to the period where the medication is wearing off. This could be that or may be that Vyvanse isn’t the right medication for you. There are two types of stimulants: amphetamine (Adderall, Vyvanse, Evekeo…) and methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Quillivant…). Almost everyone does well on one type or the other, but not both.
