Last year I was diagnosed with ADHD which was complicated 7 years ago with breast cancer. I have been struggeling with the chemo brain and not remembering things. In November 2011 started on Vyvanse 30mg. By the second day the fog was gone and my memory improved. Now I have the hope I needed. My current dose is 50 mg and have a new perscription for 60mg. Having more side effects on the 50 mg. My doctor does not know how much is enough, she has increased my dosage at my request.

How do you know when you are on the right dose? I'm thinking I may need to go back down to 40 mg because of the side effects.
