112.5 mg oral Pharms - Venlafaxine
  60 mg oral Lisdexamfetamine
Lisdexamfetamine, a Lovely Little Prodrug

Background and info:
- 24yo/Male, 5'8, 160lbs
- Diagnoses: BPD (Borderline), MDD, ADHD, suicidal ideation (with two attempts), drug abuse (benzos/opiate pills were my itch)
- Quit alcohol (over 130 days sober however, I was a heavy drinker for three years), moderate recreational cannabis consumption.
- Prescribed Lisdexafetamine (Vyvanse XR) for ADHD.
- Additionally, I'm prescribed: Suboxone, Depakote, Seroquel, Effexor, and Guanfacine.

It's 5:30am, I've taken both my morning 112.5mg of Venlafaxine (my prescribed SNRI) and my Vyvanse (60mg). Haven't taken these together, this will be exciting since Venlafaxine itself gives me a small energy boost. I want to make coffee but I don't want the extra "jitteriness" thus I'll go without.

I feel now as though I'm lightweight, I feel a slight race in my heart, a tiny tingle in my brain, the Vyvanse is beginning to take effect. I feel a steady pulsation of energy through my fingertips, as though I have little shocks going over them; I feel moderately euphoric, a small "giggly" feeling washes over me as I sit and type at my laptop. My vision has now faintly changed, lights and colors are brighter and more punchy and I'm focusing on small things near me.

It's now 7:30am and I don't feel hungry yet, I know I should eat however but I don't feel the need to yet, must be the hunger suppression part of this drug... I feel active, lively, I have an urge to do things, anything. I feel talkative and cheery however, somewhat on edge but it's not overpowering or worrying me.

I've now leveled out on my peak, I'm writing, playing with the dog and finally had a breakfast snack. Music is beaming and colors continue to be vivid and 'pop' more, and my mind has everything in order. I feel less 'twitchy' much more concentrated now that I'm over the come-up. This drug is undoubtedly one of my favorites now, Adderall is too "jerky" in my opinion whilst this is a smoother experience. I feel like I want to dance, like I want to workout; I feel SO alive right now.

I've cleaned the entire upstairs of the house now, I needed to DO something; did all the dishes, vacuumed, wiped the dining table down, I feel motivated to accomplish things. Starting to feel hungry however, going to need something to eat soon. I continue to feel faintly euphoric, however it's more a feeling of enlightened wellbeing rather than like MDMA's intense euphoria. Time to go back to writing while I'm in the zone!

Time for a lunch break! Took the dog out to play and wholly enjoyed the snow falling outside. It was nice standing out there, enjoying the quietness; I loved listening to the sound of the snow falling, the gentle breeze rushing through the trees and brushing over my face.

I'm on the comedown now, the buzzing in the back of my head has calmed down and I feel less "on top" however I continue to be able to focus on one task at a time. The day has been productive and I feel accomplished for once in a long time, I took care of all my needed tasks and more. I'm positive, happy with myself, and happy with my home.

I now feel somewhat drowsy, don't feel irritable or moody which is good; I've accomplished way more than I had hoped today which is fantastic. I can't wait for tomorrow, I feel as though it's going to super nice again as it was today. All in all, I'm impressed with Vyvanse, it's a great medication if used appropriately; in my opinion this is better than Adderall, it is much more paced and its XR action helps the "amphetamine crash" from being vicious.
