Vyvanse vs. Adderall. Dr Edward Fruitman M.D., a top NYC psychiatrist. Trifecta Health ( shares Dr Edward Fruitman’s opinion. Amphetamine-based stimulants can be used to treat ADD/ADHD. They improve concentration and attention for people with the disorder. However, the difference lies in how they are made and taken.
Adderall is flexible because it can be taken at any time during the day. This depends on each individual’s requirements. Vyvanse is usually taken only once per day. Adderall’s immediate release can cause a “peak effect”, which can make it difficult for people who don’t want to be over-stimulated. Vyvanse, on the other hand, does not have this effect as its release is prolonged and provides consistent and balanced stimulation throughout your day. Vyvanse can’t be broken down or snorted, so it must be swallowed whole to reduce the chance of abuse or over-use.
