Weeks: Both Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and clonazepam should be working for you very quickly. If you do not feel that they are working for you in a few weeks then see your doctor for adjustments.

Consider others: So, you are just 21 years old and you need, in my opinion, a regimen that will not be habit forming and addictive. Xanax (alprazolam) and clonazapam are called benzodiazapines and can be habit forming. Adderall and Vyvnase are both Amphetamines and should not be prescribed to someone with a Depressive Disorder as they can make depression worse. I suggest you try to see a Board Certified Psychiatrist. Good luck

Soon: The Vyvansewill work on the day you take it. Clonaxepam will have its effect reasonably quickly. You will likely feel an effect on the day you take it.
