Also,not ever taken a stimulant med like vyvanse,is 1 20mg capsule a day of vyvanse going to make a difference in the chronic fatigue I feel daily,plus my thyroid has completely stop putting out hormones at all,we've up the meds but it'll take sum time for the thyroid meds to get it where it needs to be,so with that being said...will the 20mg 1time a day make a difference and what's a good time of day to take it when I need to get up by 7am? Please help as soon as possible.
sufferin; you don't know for sure how it is going to work for you so I would say start tomorrow, follow the doctors orders if it's in the morning and evening But, most take it in the morning when you get up..But if you do pretty good in the morning you can wait and take it about the time that you normally take it as you are starting to slump mid-morning or afternoon. Also, the doctor well adjust the dose if needed they start you low and gradually increase as needed or change to another medication.
I also have fibromyalgia and used to take vyvanse. My doctor and pharmacist told me to take it in the morning as it can affect sleep. I don't always listen to my doctor and took my meds over the weekend. Low and behold sure enough I was wide awake all weekend. I was on a higher dose than you are now. As chuck has said its best to wait until the morning to take it. Follow chuck's post he has some of the best advice on here. So anyway that's my opinion. I hope this medicine works for you. I know all too well about not having energy with fibromyalgia. Good luck to you. Pepper
