Yes these two drugs can be co-prescribed.
Do you need to know anything else about them?
How should I explain to my doctor how I need these prescriptions to be able to better function during a difficult time in my life? What dosage do you recommend since I have been on clonazepam (.5 mg.) for a month and a half? I believe I need a stronger dosage because I know my body and what I am feeling; however, most doctors want to prescribe what they think is best for my condition. I am currently unemployed and don't have funds to continue seeing a doctor once a month at $89.00 a visit. Whatever advice you can give me, will be truly and deeply appreciated. Thank you so much.
You have been prescribed these medicines already?
What is the main reason that you need to consider taking them?
To be honest I would not recommend any of these drugs for anxiety.
Self help , psychology and medication with a SSRI / beta blocker are much more likely to give you a permanent solution rather than simply sedating you......
Vyvance in particular is unsuitable - it is stimulant amphetamine used to treat ADHD
Please read the links below and get back to me if you wish.
These two can be co-prescribed for ADHD!
Personally I would NOT use them to treat an anxiety problem and I would be surprised if anyone else would to.
The second link I sent you outlines all the effective drug treatments - these are very effective.
For adults with ADHD the dose of Vyvanse is 30mg daily - max 70mg daily.
Lorazepam - short term use in anxiety 1-4mg per day in divided dosage - best to treat for 6 weeks or less in view of dependence.
