I have been on Vyvanse 40mgs for about a week and I do not feel any different. I was on Aderall 30mgs, round and pink (made me feel "normal") and two 30 mgs of orange oval (Didn't do anything and has a nasty sweet taste). The two Adderall was by Teva. Where can I get the pink 30 mg Adderall? Also, shouldn't I be feeling a difference on the Vyvanse? Too expensive not to work.

Vyvanse 70 was much more effective for me than was Vyvanse 40.
Talk to your psychiatrist. I had the same problem with Vyvance.
What did your doc do about it?
He increased it, and I take it at two separate times in the day. I’m also on 40 mgs. It still isn’t working that great, so I plan to talk to him again.
I could be wrong, but I did some research on the drug, and the way Vyvance works depends almost entirely on your metabolism. That’s why it takes about two hours to peak—I think. I may not be right, but I’m pretty sure the main ingredient L-something or other is turned into D-amph in your stomach, which again is why it takes longer for it to peak. Adderall is made of Amphetamine salts, which is why I think it works faster and stronger? You might want to look this up too, and ask your doctor for certain. I’m not a doctor, and could be totally wrong.
I have a very fast metabolism, and I think I just go through the Vyvance too quickly. It just doesn’t last the 12 hours + like it’s advertised.
I hope this helps. And again, these are just my theories based on research I did on the internet. I also plan to ask my doctor about it.
Hope that helps!
Do you think someone with severe acid reflux would be affected by an activation delay of vyvanse ? Some mornings when I have acid reflux the activation seems to be very very slow or late.
One reason you might not feel it is that it is spreading the benefit over time. I found that I work better with a straight dose of Adderal a few times a day. This gives me strong focus when I am getting organized. Once I get started I can usually sail through the task until the next dose. Vyvanse drove me bonkers. I had that uneasy feeling when you are coming down from the Adderal and it lasted all day.
I guess that's me. Works too slow. I have used the bright pink round 30 mg Adderall but I can't get it anymore. It worked great.
