There are longer timed formulations for ritalin and that includes a patch which can be removed when you wish to sleep.

Interesting your comment on moving the internal to external. When depressed I keep processing all my thoughts. Where in meditation you let them flow by in depression you latch onto them and experience emotions.I know I am coming out of depression when I become interested in external stimuli which includes becoming more sociable.
I am experimenting with 10 mg of amitriptyline with my vyvanse (50 mg). Seems to take the raw edges off. I want to see if it prolongs the vyvanse action and slows tolerance.
