I also cannot tell I took anything until the XR doses mix with each other. Then it’s almost identical to the suppression delivered by the vyvanse. I asked her about IR the day I sent the reply to you about your experience. She did not want to at all prescribe the IR medication to me until I had first tried the XR. I’m concerned as well. I’m sure now she will want to up the mg, which is fine, but I’ve read a lot about “tolerance”. I’m 40 and haven’t ever asked for help with ADD because I’ve always been against pharmaceuticals. After experiencing the way this medication works, it’s no longer possible for me to deny my issues, and that there is a solution.
So the Adderall XR works but again only for a short period of time. The vyvanse worked better to suppress the ADD symptoms, however the crash was so much worse. I took the XR at 8am and again at 12pm. The XR was most effective 1-2pm. That is when the the two doses were actually mixed with each other. By 4pm I was crashing. Again the crash was much more bearable on Adderall. My guess is when I report this to my doctor next month I will have to take 3 a day in order to make it to bedtime. Hope this helps.
I read the article you mentioned and I have a question for you. Would you agree that someone who metabolizes these medications so quickly should be taking a short acting medication 2-3 times daily instead of the long acting (extended release) Medications these doctors are prescribing? Thank you in advance
Almost identical experience for me. I was on 30mg vyvanse for 12 days lol. I crashed at the 3-4 hour mark each day. My doctor just switched me over to Adderall XR 20mg twice a day starting tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it goes. Most people I know that have ADD use and swear by Adderall. I’m recently diagnosed and hoping for a good outcome.
