It is an d-amphetamine or commonly known as dextroamphetamine except bonded with an additional protien, lysine, creating Lisdextroamphetamine Dimesylate which Shire then shortened and replaced the "ph" with an "f" resulting with lisdexamfetamine, because they believe it would help customers psychologically disassociate its relationship with the illegal drug amphetamine... nice
almost got me shire...
Ok, so brace yourselves.. this new protien not only greatly slows down the release of the dextro into your body, but it cannot be ingested anyway other than just poppin the pill... you can powder it up and drink it, but wont break the time release.
So no snorting, or injecting... or any other dumb ideas you have.. The only way to truly break the time release is to manually hydrolize it, replacing your liver's job of removing the additional protien which isn't that hard to figure out you know your chemistry.
BUT for the rest of you...
its really not all that bad cuz now you don't have the opportunity to fuck up your nose lining, like i did.
it actually gives you a really nice long lasting buzz/mood lift that is indistinguishable from adderall, but even cleaner if you are lookin for a good buzz all day. It doesnt make me really jittery like adderall does so I still have a hell of a lot of energy but a bit more relaxed.
These are the doses and exactly how much Adderall Extended Release they are equal to:
• 30 mg—white and orange capsule 10 = mg Adderall XR
• 50 mg—white and blue capsule 20 = mg Adderall XR
• 70 mg—blue and orange capsule 30 = mg Adderall XR
So you can do the math and see how much you would like.
IMPORTANT things to remember about this drug:
-It is watered down speed
-You can get addicted if you take large doses for days on end.. so dont.. withdrawls fuckin blow.
-The time release of dextro is VERY consistent for about 12-14 hours which increases with dose... so if you are going to use it as prescribed... OR abuse like I do, make sure you still take it in the early morning!
-If you are a dumbass and think it would be cool to pop 90mg at 3 on a Sunday afternoon, you will probably writing a definiton of Vyvanse at 4:53 in the fuckin morning, like I am.
-If you want to use it recreationally I'd recommend between 90mg-270mg depending on how much of a tolerance you have to amphetamines... but try to limit yourself to once or twice a week, or its magic will go away.
Ok kids, now go tell your mommy and daddy you keep forgetting what you learned in math class. Enjoy!
Kid: damn man isnt tommorow friday?
Tweaker: yea it is.... im pretty stoked to do it again
-Wow! With a little help from this pill I cranked out about 38 hours at work between Saturday-Sunday and now I can see my ribcage, Thanks Vyvanse!
In some ways, the effects of this pill for those who have trouble with amphetamines are worse. The consistency has a tendency to make you feel a little out of touch, it can become hard to recognize after a few hours that what you're feeling is not normal. However, it definetly still has an advantage over adderall when it's perscribed, since it cannot be snorted, making over the top abuse a little more restricted.
Personally, I would rather have a bottle of 30 70mg vyvanse than a bottle of 30 30mg adderall. However, they truly are best used only once daily, with occassional break periods such as the weekend to regain your composure. Amphetamine abuse is very risky and damaging, whether a user wishes to admit it or not, and you should only take Vyvanse as prescribed by your doctor.
chick- "what the hell is wrong with that creep? he must be on fucking meth or some shit."
other chick "nah, he probably just took a bunch of adderall or vyvanse like a pussy"
both drugs have a very high potential for abuse. although adderall is the iconic speed-in-a-pill, vyvanse has an advantage due to its easily opened shell containing the drug already in a fine, easily snorted powder(intended purpose is to dissolve in water). a burning sensation in the nose may follow, but will more than likely pass within minutes. this is important because adderall can be a real pain cutting up fine enough to snort. people like to snort these drugs because it causes the drug to kick in much faster and harder, but the duration will be shortened. avoid fruit juice and vitamin c when taking because it can cause your body to absorb less of the drug.
there are plenty of reasons for caution when doing this drug but the broadest category to keep in mind is any problem related to the heart (high/low blood pressure, hardened arteries, heart attacks,irregular heartbeat, ect.)
i used to hate 18th century french ecocritical literature, but now the only thing that makes the bugs stop crawling underneath my skin is "Les Rêveries du promeneur solitaire" on audio tape. thank you vyvanse!!
