Took Vyvanse instead of Melotinin. Is it ok ?

Hi my son just told my husband and I that he took his Vyvanse instead of his melotinin and I m afraid to give him his medicine to go to school. So my question is is it safe for him to be on his med for 36 hrs straight or should I keep him home from school and skip it for the day? I m very concerned. Thank you for your time ...
