Hi,

Vyvanse contains lisdexamfetamine dimesylate that belongs to the group of medications known as stimulants is used to treat the symptoms of ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and sometimes binge eating disorder. The recommended starting dosage in adults is 30 mg per day and dosage can be adjusted in increments of 10 mg to 20 mg at weekly intervals up to maximum recommended dosage of 70 mg per day according to the Clinical Studies.

So, your husband has already taken the maximum recommended dosage of 70 mg per day. He should take 70 mg of Vyvanse once daily. He should not take 3 pills of Vyvanse that contain 210 mg together. If he feels that 70 mg of Vyvanse once daily is not sufficient to control his symptoms of illness, then he should consult his doctor immediately for medical help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
