Before Vyvanse starts to fade

Four hours ago I took Vyvanse. It is how I am writing this right now. Vyvanse is at its peak.

This is when I have desire. At about six hours, gone. I’ve been on Pristiq 100mg for a fifteen days now, I think it is helping. I don’t seem as low in the evenings.

Life is best from hour two to hour five of Vyvanse. It is when I feel the most alive.

I took Adderall for four years, heavily abusing it the last few months I was on it.

Am I ever going to feel normal? Am I ever going to feel as if I have desires not during the peak of Vyvanse?

Honestly, I am not sure. Maybe I became so use to the Adderall that my body doesn’t feel right without it.

Maybe stimulants are just a god send for me, they clear my mind in a way that nothing else has. Sigh.

Oh well. I need to post this and head to the gym .

  1. I too am on Pristiq. I take 100mg every morning and 50mg at night. It’s pulled me from the depression but not the chaos in my head. I tested positive for adult ADHD recently. We’re going to try short acting Adderall at first and slowly advance to Vyvanse and see if it works. I think the peak you’re having would be good to discuss with your doctor. We all metabolize medications differently and my psychiatrist did a oral swab test to see how I metabolize all the different medications which has been helpful in my treatment. Good luck to you!

    That’s strange, if Vyvanse only lasts four or five hours you would think that they’d tell you to take it a couple of times a day… I don’t know much about it, personally. I’ve only ever taken Ritalin, Paxil, and Prozac.

  3. Vyvanse sounds amazing, but why such a short term effect? It’s like smoking weed. Basically does the same as the 25mg of Lamictal and something of Buspar that I’m on, without the pain inside my brain.
    I relate too much to this post. Thanks for your blog. Helps to know there’s others out there.
