Brief Answer:
Vyvanse can help to improve the condition.

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related queries

For persistent tiredness, fatigued feelings a psychiatric consultation is advised. You are in college and are doing many courses, you also have work to do and your father is having brain tumour. All these things are resulting in severe distress which is causing problems. Adjustment reaction, depression because of stress are possible reasons.

Vyvanse can help to improve the condition but in my opinion antidepressants should help to improve the condition. Vyvanse is an stimulant drug and will definitely help but the drug is a controlled drug and online prescription of this drug is not accepted. Please visit a doctor for proper evaluation.

Thanks, Hope this helps.
