A 22-year-old female asked:

First few days on 30 mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) were superb. focus and motivation were high, effects diminished so moved to 50 mg and same thing, worked for few days.

Unusual: Unusual for the benefits to diminish in a few days - however I have seen patients who require as much as 90 mgm/day - if effects continue to diminish need to change meds.
