      I was prescribed vyvanse 30mg once daily. High metabolism so crashed after only 3-4 hours. Doctor now prescribed Adderall Xr 20mg twice daily. Anyone else have this experience?

      I’m also new to treatment at age 50. Vynase 30 crashed after 3-4 hours? That’s what happens to me on especially stressful days. I started on 20, and my regular crashes were the reason my doc raised my dose–which, unfortunately, has made little difference.

      I’m currently looking for a new psychiatrist. (Old one is no longer available, and my GP doesn’t have the specialized knowledge.) If you can find a psychiatrist who specializes in ADD, that’s extremely valuable.
