Has anyone tried both (not at the same time, but to treat the same symptoms?) Phentermine also helped me with losing weight but the focus and stimulation I got from it helped me achieve so much more in a day. Also, Phentermine is not a lifestyle medication - never more than a few months. Also, insurance wouldn't cover it - it was about $80 / month.
Vyvanse is Lisdexfetamine which metabolizes into Dextroamphetamine after passing through the liver. Dextroamphetamine is exponentially more powerful than Phentermine. I'm on straight D-Amp and it's a hell of an appetite suppressant along with being highly effective for my ADHD. Vyvanse basically is D-Amp it just takes a couple of hours to become bio-available. Vyvanse has a mechanism of action that lowers abuse potential but it's still a Schedule II. Dextroamphetamine Sulfate is way cheaper than Vyvanse, I don't know if that's an option for you, but just a suggestion.
I have ADHD and depression. I just stopped Vyvanse to go back on to Phen. While I like Vyvanse, I have better results with the Phentermine. Better focus, more energy and better control over obsessive food cravings. I can eat a piece of cake and instead of the entire cake be cause it tastes sooo good. I can get work done even if I know there is a bowl of candy in the next room. Vyvanse did noting for those compulsive behaviors for me. To be honest, taking Phen makes me feel "normal".
