Definitely ask a doctor. But I am taking Vyvanse (along with other meds) for bipolar depression. It helps me stay focused and alert when taking a low dose in the afternoon.
Everyone's different though. And it can depend on what other meds you're currently taking. I started by taking it with my morning meds but found that it made me really shaky/anxious. So I started taking it later in the day apart from my other meds and it works great for me.
Also, you'll want to be careful if you have high anxiety because ADHD meds can make that worse.
Any questions? Let me know! :)
