Adderall is mixture: of amphetamine salts including dextroamphetamine and is short acting. Vyvanse is pure dextroamphetamine bound to l-lysine to produce slow release. Vyvanse has FDA approval for binge eating disorder. Adderall would be off label but should work based on dextroamphetamine response. Seek evaluation from a qualified experienced prescriber to determine what is best for you. Best regards for good health.
