Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Starting Vyvanse shouldn't be a problem. It is a non-amphetamine ADHD medication and is a good choice for adults.
Well I have not seen a psych yet...I will this week so I wanted to ask them about adding that to my wellbutrin. I think I'm afraid to ask them though because adhd meds are so controversial
But I feel like it has really helped me before as far as motivation and stabalizing my mood
Amphetamine ADHD meds are a bit controversial for adults. Vyvanse and Strattera where both developed as another class to be used by adults.
I do want to tell you something about Wellbutrin though.
I read recently that the drug company fudges the testing that showed it improves attention. The most recent study indicates that it doesn't help/
That is interesting because I feel like it hasn't helped me lately. I felt like it did a year ago when I first started but now I'm just exhausted all the time
what do you think about the combo of wellbutrin and vyvanse?
Wellbutrin is fine if you
you're treating depression and it shouldn't be a problem with vyvanse.
I'm also not adhd as far as I know. I have never been tested but the vyvnse helps with my depression
oh, I haven't heard that before.
If you have having trouble with tiredness and lack of motivation, Abilify is good to add with Wellbutrin..
Well, I suppose because I have not motivation. I have been on many anti-dperessants in the past. Adding the vyvanse has really helped me with getting through the day
Ok, this is good information. I just want to know all my options.
I started taking Abilify in Jan. and I really like it.
vyvanse has been an upper for me and I don't crash from it either.
Did it help with tiredness and motivation?
It's funny because this is the first time Abilify has been mentioned. I'm always googling this stuff and that NEVER comes up so I'll look into it
That was the problem I was having. My depression was doing better with Wellbutrin and Effexor but I had zero motivation. Abilify was a great help.
It's approved by FDA to use with antidepressants.
So, I should just be open with my psych?
even about the possibility of vyvanse?
Yes, even the Vyvanse should be okay to take if it has worked for you in the past. It's not a controlled substance.
Awesome. I think that's what I'm most afraid of is to just even ask about it.
Hopefully, your psych is open minded enough to listen to you.
I'm afraid they will think I'm some kind of addict or fiend
Vyvanse isn't addictive.
Here's hoping I get an open minded one!
Thank you so much. I feel much better about talking about this.
You're completely welcome.
It's funny because I work with Doctor's everyday but I refuse to ask them anything!
I don't want them judging me
No one likes to feel judged.
Thanks again and have a great day!
