I've been on 50mg of Vyvanse for about 8 weeks now and after 3 or 4 hours of sleep, I am wide awake. Am I taking it too late in the morning? I have been taking it around 8:30am, along with my paxil. Would switching the paxil from morning to night help? I even tried 10mg of Melantonin without much luck.

You need to talk to the Dr. who prescribed it. The dose could be too high. It's often a bit of trial and error to figure out what dose is right.
