Mg for mg it is stronger, but i dont know how much. Try your dose for a while and talk to your doctor if it is not right. If you think it is too much or it is making you sick or anything, stop it and call the doctor right away. If you don't think it is strong enough tell them.
From what i have read alot of people find desoxyn, dexedrine, and vyvanse a lot "mellower" of drugs
. Ive never taken desoxyn (i have taken street meth
but in a lot bigger doses and i am sure it was cut), but i think Vyvanse is a smoother, mellower drug
...slow to come on and real consistent and calm.
One thing i am discovering is i NEVER gave a fuck about skipping Ritalin for a day or two. I often did, if i didnt have anything going on or had a weekend off work. But Vyvanse....its really hard to take a day off it. I have only missed one day since i started it two weeks ago...I tell myself i am taking the day off and i will end up into it within a few hours. Im not abusing it, but i WANT it. I don't like that AT ALL, it makes me very nervous. I never had that with Ritalin. Ever. And i was on it for years. I have never skipped my Ritalin and sat and craved it. I took yesterday off Vyvanse and it was awful. I felt like shit and couldnt think at all. I tried to take today off as well because i got hurt and am off work for a while til i can get knee surgery in a couple weeks. I drooled thinking about it for hours until i finally gave in and took it. Now i have no reason i have to be on top of my game. I can't manage to do much at work, if i go in it is only for an hour or two. I can't clean house because i can't stand up long enough to get much done besides laundry and dishes. So here i sit, perfectly vyvansinated. Am i high? No, not a bit. I can think though. I hate having a pill tell me when i can think.
And i wouldnt DREAM of abusing it. I don't even want to KNOW how amazing it would probably feel, and the idea of running out early is way more than enough incentive to not. I dont really have any desire to misuse it. But i sure as hell know i dont have any desire to go off it, either.
And this is taking 50 mg a day for the past 2 weeks. I don't like being this way. I am real protective of it, if anyone ever stole it from me i would probably hunt them down. If i ever lost it, i would literally go to the Dr in tears begging for it. LOL. I have no pride. Now i DID lose my Ritalin once, almost a whole bottle. All i felt was, "Oh shit that sucks. Well i can't call about it this soon! I'll just have to manage the best i can." I found it several days later and it was like Christmas! It fell out of my coat and was on the floor in the garage. Im lucky i didnt run over it, or i would have had to go out and lick the floor every morning before work.
All i know is even though i dont feel myself coming up or get any sort of kick in the ass that i can discern with this drug, my brain LIKES it a LOT more than ritalin, and it makes me nervous.
