Suggest dosage for Vyvanse

default
Posted on Wed, 23 Dec 2015
Question: What are the different dosages of Vyvanse? I am on 70 and it really helps me stay alert and focused, but I have a hard time getting to sleep if I take it two days in a row.
I'm wondering if my dosage is too high.

Brief Answer:
70mg is the XXXXXXX recommended dose per day.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.

Vyvanse is available in dosage strengths ranging from 10 to 70mg capsules.

You are taking 70mg per day. That is the maximum recommended dose of vyvanse.

It may be a bit too high you considering your age (that is 65 years).

Being an activating drug, it can disturb sleep. I hope you must be taking it in daytime.

Consider reducing the dose to 60 mg after discussing this with your doctor.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to ask further.
Thanks.
