What is the minimum time allowed between taking vyvanse dosage(s)? is there a dosage set point where the intensity of the medication extends the time?

Vyvanse dosage: These are one daily drugs. They are stimulants. If taken too late they will interfere with sleep. Usual time to take this med is in the morning, before school or before work. Should only be taken under physician supervision. If you are taking it for "ADD" or ADHD, I would advise that you be evaluated by a mental health professional.
