    Im about to call the doc to see if I can get a dex-based medicine. Should I ask for dex spansules or vyvanse?



    EDIT - Extra credit: Does anyone know off hand the equivalent dosages of Vyvanse vs Dex Spansules?

    25 mg of Vyvanse capsule is molecularly equivalent to 10 mg Dexedrine Spansules (both the aforementioned pharmaceuticals are about 7.425 mg dextroamphetamine.)



    There different delivery systems. Spanules is just a beaded time release prep. So it's equivalant to a BID dosage. AKA 20mg of Dex Spanules = 10mg of IR dexedrine BID

    From my personal experience with both meds, dex.spansules wins hands down...Although both are quite beneficial for ADHD and the like...

    can some one help with a ratio from adderal to vyvanse. I used to take 10-20mg adderal now I take 30-60mg vyvanse.





    This isnt new to vyvnase but does any one else notice that they get a pump and just feel much in shape while working out or just walking around on stims. I noticed that the first time I was ever really lean was from stims. Im sure this might be commen knowlege for some but just wondering.



    Also when on stims my body temp rises to the "normal" 98.6

    One could say that 30-60mg of lisdexamfetamine is = to about 10-25mg of Timed-Released Adderall XR. This is just a "guess-estimate"...



    Normal for body temp. to rise slightly (with a more noticeable pump also) - and HR+BP to increase - (to varying degrees) - especially when ingesting amphetamines while exercising strenuously...

    However, that "feel much in shape" effect you described might tend to decrease over time...

    This perception could be hallucinatory. These meds increase heart rate, which leads to a pumped feeling.

    Well I worked out very very hard and made sure my diet was on point when I was about 19-21. I noticed that my muscle quality improved and I got much leaner while retaining all my muscle while on adderal. I was just wondering if this was due to the raise in body temperature.



    THe reason I ask is because I suspect I have a subclinical hormoane or thyroid issue. The way I hold fat in unsuall considering my stats and my body temp is usually not close to 98.6. I was just thinking that maybe this might have more of an affect in me than other because of some other borderline condition.

    I think I like the vyvanse better because it doesn't give me a manic irritated feeling like I would get from adderal IR, I don't remember XR

    Vyvanse is superior if your insurance pays most of the tab. Dexedrine spansules are stupidly cheap. You can take one Vyvanse a day, but you'll probably need 2ish spansules.



    My cost w/ insurance is $50 for Vyvanse, $15 for the spansules, so the latter would win, because Vyvanse isn't $35/month better.

    Vyvanse only lasts me 7 or 8 hours. For some other people it can last the whole waking day. I dose IR dexedrine once or twice in the evening.



    I haven't tried dexedrine spansules, but some people don't like them very much for some reason. Check the ADDforums.

    Even on the second day, the results were already incredible (once again). While sexual energy is higher, the feeling of urgency is greatly reduced. I no longer dream of marrying every average looking woman I look at. I speak with the confidence. I make eye contact. I am less tempted to try my luck with fat chicks. etc, etc, etc.

    IIRC the target for Vyvanse is 12ish hours. In me, I'd say thats a good approximation.



    Not taking it now, though.

    whats the smallest dossage it comes in? I am experimenting with my dose, I have 30,s and 20,s do they make 10's. Also just for information sake, is it much more expensive to take lets say 6 10mg pills rather than 2 30mg pills.
