Even when I'm physically exhausted my brain has trouble shutting down to allow me to sleep. Xanax works very well to quiet the brain during the night and helps me to fall asleep quickly. Is this a common combination be perscribed?
Did your Dr who precribes the Vyvanse also prescribe the Xanax for this purpose? It is a little unusual to use Xanax as it can be an addictive medication especially if taken on a daily basis. You may find that it loses its ability to help you sleep quite quickly. There are other medications that are not addicitve that can be used to help you sleep after taking Vyvanse. My son was on Concerta (which is somewhat similar to Vyvanse in that they are both stimulants used for treating ADD/ADHD) for several years and the Concerta kept him from sleeping. His Dr prescribed Clonidine for sleep. he took it for several years and never had to increase the dose and it always worked like a charm. 30 min to an hour after taking it he was out like a light.
