Customer reply replied 2 years ago
She is 24. I believe the adderal is the 30mg. She not living with me any longer so I can't checked.
Right after I hit submit I remembered it's the adderal that is 30mg not the vyvanse I'm unsure of the new dose of the vyvanse but.. I think it's higher maybe 50mg..

In the long term it can be dangerous. In the short term, there is likely no need to worry. It can lead to heart tremors and can affect the way the heart beats. Assuming she has no cardiac conditions and that she does not take both regularly, she will just lose her appetite, get sweaty palms, and won't sleep very well.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
