Mornings Are Tough For Me... How Are Yours ? What Helps You Get Up?

Mornings Are Tough For Me... How Are Yours ? What Helps You Get Up?

Mornings are very tough to get up. My work schedule is soon changing from having to be in at 10am to being in at 7am! Eeek! Big change. I've done it before it didn't work out... But now I have no choice but do it or loose my job. What helps you get going in the morning ? Does the gym really help or make you more fatigued ?

Has Anyone Used Vyvanse?

Has Anyone Used Vyvanse?

My insurance company balked all of the sudden at my years-long adderral rx, so my doc prescribed vyvanse. I'm curious to know if anyone has any experience with it, your dosage and any side effects?

Also, did it replace an adderral Rx? If so, what dosage?

My adderral dosage was 75mg over 3x a day and my vyvanse dosage is 70mg. The vyvanse seems to come on strong first thing, but fade pretty quickly in the afternoon.
