My Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) decreases effectiveness of vicodin been on both for awhile vicodin works when I don't take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) but I need both. What should I do?

I currently take three10mg doses of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir over the day, but I dislike the crash. Is quillivant/vyvanse less "crash"-able than Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir?

Yup. Adderall xr, concerta, daytrana, vyvanse, quillivant, strattera intuniv, Kapvay are longer acting. If the onset is slow, the crash is minimal.

Eating or exercising at the anticipated crash time can mitigate the symptoms some.
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is long acting and may help with the crashing. Talk to your doctor about possible switch to a dose equivalent to what u r taking.
Yes. Yes. Both Quillivant and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are truly extended-release formulations. They do not leave your body is rapidly as Adderall. Because of the slower tapering, people do not normally complain of the "crash"

If a person gets side effect like very cold limbs from 10mg of adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) but does not from 20mg. Should they take 20mg dose?

Possible acclimation. I'm not sure I understand that particular side effect to be honest. But assuming that is definitely an effect of the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) then, perhaps the explanation of why it's not happening at 20mg. Is that your body has acclimated to the medication. Other possibility is that the feeling of cold extremities was simply unrelated to begin with to the medication.
