Is it possible to safely be on multiple amphetamine such as adderall tablets and Vyvanse capsules for example? I am on 50 mg vyvanse and i maybe get 7 hours or so depending on how it absorbs with my stomach contents and acidic intake, etc? It ranges around only 6-8 hours because I am an ultra rapid metabolizer as I had genetic profile testing done for my enzymes/metabolism factors performed by my last psychiatrist. I am good for the day except around 5:00 PM or so when the vyvanse wears off then I have to deal with ADHD symptoms the rest of the day. It is hard being a full time student and having that occur. Does anyone do an amphetamine in the day and a methylphenidate in the afternoon?
