> i've been through much of this, i was on a high dose of vyvanse, in the morning, and vyvanse takes like 2 hours to reach peak effect, lasts around 8 hours, maybe little more, then it slllloooowly wears off, i hated it, rather take regukar dexedrine that work quick and wears off quick, you could have a XR form scheduel, and other non-amphetamine meds, mainly is methyphendiate, and bupropion, and they also add selegine to a stimulant to prolong the effect, you might want to ask about that, but im sure if you can take selegine, it's safe, doesnt counteract.....

> my old schedule was dexedrine spansule, i would 2 in the morning, it would last 6 hours, and i would take 2 at 3pm, which would last till 9pm which was exactly 12 hours, and then i could rest and get ready for sleep. It doesn't have the longer grueling wear off period like vyvanse, it just simply....leaves your system, quick and fast, but it tends to make you feel washed out kinda, but that's common.

> as for methyphenidate, they also have long forms, like concerta, and almost focalin xr, which are good treatments, less amphetamine feeling and more just focus with less stimulation, they both increase dopamine but methyphediate is dopamine rep-take inhibitor, not release it like amphetamine
>
> but consider asking your doctor about selegine to a ADHD med, it helps with the effect and keeps dopamine going even after stimulant wears off

A selegaline add on? I've never heard of that. I'm considering vyvanse. Even though it doesn't last nearly as long as advertised, I think it might be a little more subtle than spansules.
