I'm wondering if it is more effective to take Adderall XR twice a day or Vyvanse only once a day?

From a patient perspective who has been on both for very extended periods, Vyvanse works great for the honeymoon-no heavy initial shock, easy come-down, steady flow of medication... until your body just gets use to it. I was on Vyvanse for 3 years at 70 mg. It just stopped working. I currently take Adderral 30 mg. twice daily in addition to Nuvigil (250 then 125 mg.) twice daily and its night and day. I have focus, energy, and never crash.
I have bipolar 1 (rapid cycle) with ADD and GAD.
