Hi minniemouse - Do you take Vyvanse for Adult ADHD? Since it is a stimulant of similar make-up, have you tried Dextroamphetamine? Or, Dextrostat? This is one of the meds that has been used for years for both ADHD, and to supplement actions of both depression meds. & bipolar meds. But, principally with ADHD. Also, can you see the Psychiatrist and ask for a med with similar characteristics? I'm also on disability, and Medicare pays for an ample supply of my Dextro, in 3 month batches. Good luck! J.
