Would you try Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) or Prozac for binge eating based on safety and effectiveness?

Neither, unless. I'd strongly urge that you see an Eating Disorder therapist and only consider any medication that they recommend w/ a good explanation of what to expect. Eating behaviors are best addressed by changing the behaviors and their basis. Gastric risks of SSRI-type drugs are good to pass up if possible.
