Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
Ask your physician to switch you to bupropion (Wellbutrin) which is an antianxiety medication and antidepressant and NOT of the SSRI class.
It is also used for ADD.
The best thing about bupropion is that it does NOT cause weight gain and does not cause sexual side effects.
Your crossover needs to be managed by your prescribing physician.
Did you stop your other drug cold turkey?
Vyvanse is purely for ADHD.
Adults or children.
Will your physician give it to you?
Did it increase your anxiety?
Asked who about your anxiety. That is for you to tell rather than ask. If the Vyvanse has helped you then you should try to get a prescription for yourself.
What is your choice? Ask the one that seems to be the most helpful and flexible.
