Can i tell me how i can get work done on non-adderall days?

If you work with a psychiatrist, you must have 30 days supply of your medications, and also practice behavioral exercises to reduce symptoms. ...Read more

I went from taking Vyvanse30mg @ 8am & 2pm to taking AdderallXR40mg @ 8am & AdderallIR10mg @ 2pm. Adderall did little to nothing. Any idea why?

It depends.: If you're taking the stimulants for ADD/ADHD, the expected results would be an improved concentration and focus, improvement in hyperactivity, being able to accomplish tasks better.
