would you try vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or prozac for binge eating based on safety and effectiveness?

Neither, unless: I'd strongly urge that you see an Eating Disorder therapist and only consider any medication that they recommend w/ a good explanation of what to expect. Eating behaviors are best addressed by changing the behaviors and their basis. Gastric risks of SSRI-type drugs are good to pass up if possible.
