In brief: 12-14 hours

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is dosed once a day, in the am. Because the lysine has to be cleaved from the mixed amphetamine salts, its onset of action is about 2 hours after taking it.
Plan your dose according to the time of your first academic class or your work. On urine drug testing it shows up as amphetamine; student athletes have to show an empty prescription bottle to the coach.

In brief: Variable

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) tends to stay in the system longer than many other adhd drugs.
But exactly how long it will stay active will vary somewhat from person to person, and even from time to time in the same person. Factors such as meals and the ph of the urine affect the metabolization of the drug.
