Does coffee affect your brain the same way as Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and Adderall XR or do they counteract each other.

Diff. Mechanisms of . Action. Coffee lowers levels of adenosine, the chemical in our bodies that builds up and makes us sleepy. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) breaks down into a chemical that increases levels of Dopamine and norepinephrine. Adderall works the same. Caffeine potentates the effect of the other two in terms of nervousness but there are no drug drug interactions otherwise.
Yes, but... While the caffeine in coffee does increase alertness it is working on different receptors in the brain than vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and Adderall and not nearly as effective for adhd.

Not unusual. Adderall and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) both are amphetamine but are quite different from each other. Adderall is a mix of amphetamine salts and isomers. D-amphetamine is the active ingredient, but some believe l-amphetamine "smooths" out the effects. Also, XR provides to bursts of meds. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a prodrug that releases d-amphetamine in a very different pattern, with no "bursts." check with your prescriber. Read more...

Hi, I have ADHD, Inattentive type and NOS learning divisibility. Whats best for me? Concerta, Adderall XR/IR, Vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) Ritalin, Methylphenidate??? :)

Work with your . psychiatrist to determine which preparation reduces your symptoms optimally. Try a long-acting delivery system of methylphenidate, then of mixed amphetamine salts, or vice-versa, at a low dose, then titrate up slowly to maximum effect. If side effects preclude optimal dose, repeat with the other stimulant. If you can't tolerate either, an adjunctive non-stimulant may help. See CHADD.org. Read more...
