I tried Vyvanse myself and had similiar issues at 5-6 hours in on 70mg, except it also gave me a general sense of malaise and screwed with my mood.
50mg was terrible.
Doctor agreed with me that I probably need a higher than max dose so I’m stuck with short acting Methylphenidate.

I was diagnosed recently.
Started medication, experimented with psychiatrist’s guidance and have settled on my current medication.
Unfortunately it means I’ll be getting discharged from the Australian Defence Force.
I’m in a similiar boat as you, I’m looking for jobs that would best suit my co-morbid asd & adhd.
I’m a non visual.
I love sorting, organising and analysing data.
I started on Methylphenidate SA.
Trialed Vyvanse when my Psychiatrist suggested it, started on 50mg (mid dose) despite being on 80mg (max Australian dose) of methylphenidate.
50mg Vyvanse was terrible.
Tried 70mg Vyvanse, was much better but as the doctor and I discussed I probably need a dose higher than the max so I’m stuck with short acting methylphenidate due to only recently being diagnosed as an adult.
I’m diagnosed ADHD and ASD.
I can’t tell you what you are but I have all of those symptoms.
Many of the symptoms between the two do overlap.
