How do I get my doctor to give me a second dose of Vyvanse so I can take my 70mg in the morning and have a second dose for the afternoon the 70mg Vyvance doesn't last the whole day.

I'm currently on 70mg Vyvanse and it works great for me but around 4 to 5 hours later it wears off and I get lethargic, drained ,tired and fatigued. I asked my doctor if a could get a lower dose for in the afternoon and he said that's the highest dose that's allowed but yet I've heard others get a second dose is there a way I can get some information to get to my doctor so he can see other doctors do prescribe a second dose?

In stead of vyvanse (lisedexamphfetamine), you should supplement with dexedrine (dexamphetamine), for which vyvanse acts as a prodrug for, ie. it's converted to dexamphetamine in your body).
Through this process, the duration is greatly prolonged (ie. it's not an extended release form) compared to dexedrine which only lasts for 4-6 hours by itself.
There is no short-lasting vyvanse/lisdexamphetamine, but there is dexedrine/dexamphetamine which is as close as you can get and which you'll probably find satisfactory for this purpose. :)

I use generic Adderall for Inattentive ADD, and a REM Sleep Cycle Disorder that causes Hyposomnia. I couldn't function without Adderall, or another stimulant medication. ADD/ADHD runs in our family, Adderall and Vyvanse work really well for everyone affected. We don't have any problems with nausea, headaches, irritability (other than normal), euphoria - which is more an indication of a mood disorder, and none of us have had to increase our dosage since being stabilized at a pretty normal dosage.
All in all this medication works really well, although generics DO work differently - the best generic we've come across - the one most like brand is Teva, and one generic brand our family and doctor agrees is terrible is Barr. The FDA did a recall, stating it might have more active ingredient, but we found it didn't help with focus or concentration AT ALL! We haven't tried any other generic brands of which I'm aware
