Vyvance is a true time released med, it does last 12 hours. But you will have price issues with it.
On your current med, an option would be to take the first dose later in the morning to get through the day.
I'm always honest with my doctor but I wouldn't go in and tell him I've been customizing my dose on Ritalin. Wait 30 days and then talk an increase over. If you don't do this, you might end up with three words in your permanent record that you do not want there, drug seeking behavior.
If you have to change doctors, the only stim you'll ever see again is coffee.
Life is good.
