I was on 70mgs of Vyvanse and now due to no insurance I am being put on Adderall 30mgs. Is that an equivalent dosages?
Is 30mgs of Adderall equivalent to 70 mgs of Vyvanse?

There is no generic form for Vyvanse. So your more than likely on a generic form of adderall! (Example: DEXTROAMP-AMPHET ER)
I pay cash for visits, and prescriptions! Which has its benefits outside of insurance such as ability to change dosage and such… Doctors still have laws and regulations to go by, such as they can only prescribe stimulants for 30days at a time, whether it be once a day or twice day (will dictate how many are dispensed) and have to see you once a month. benzodiazepines can be prescribed for 90 days (3 month at a time) before having to see you for again.
To answer your question: 30mg of Adderall XR is pretty close to 70mg of vyvanse just the ingredients (are the virtually same yet different) is absorbed differently, what my research has lead me to believe…
I had also done research regarding the dosage of Adderall XR and Adderall IR that would be equivalent to Vyvanse, and bottom-line, based on my experience with both of those drugs, there is absolutely no dosage of Adderall that provides the same benefits as Vyvanse. I do not find that Adderall is any type of replacement for Vyvanse, but to each their own. Adderall was most definitely not the right drug for me.
The simplest way to put it is 12mg of Adderall is equivalent to approximately 30mg of Vyvanse. So essentially when you were on 70 of Vyvanse that was equivalent to around 28mg of adderall . So I'd say your Dr
Is as close as hes gonna get when converting one to the other.
I feel like it varies for different people but I took 30mg of Adderall once when I usually take 2 70mg Vyvanse a day (I take the 2nd one 4 hours after the first one) and I felt absolutely nothing.
