what is the longest lasting adhd medication or mixture of medication that would work for 16 hours at its full potential?

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) which is a prodrug is a long-acting stimulant that may last 12-16 hrs. I don't think you would want a stimulant med to be effective for a longer time, pt needs time to be able to sleep and relax also.

DEPENDS: Everyone is different but may want to consider Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or Daytrana patch. MAy need to dose a second time if need all day coverage. Possibly Strattera if you can tolerate.
