I am on effexor xr and vyvanse. I use to be on just the vyvanse but it was causing me more anxiety and mood changes. The effexor seems to be working well. I want to know if there is anyone on this combination of drugs. If so please tell me how it worked for you. I think I might have had bipolar 2 and ADD inattentive. I know I have been depressed almost all my life. I just want to succeed in life and try to go to school. I hope these medications work. Could you give me some more information about this? Im afraid that I will also become dependant on both of these drugs since they are working. Iv been on the effexor for one week and can tell a good difference. Iv been on the vyvanse for 2 months at 50 mgs. I think i need to increase my dose with the vyvance because it dosnt seem to last as long as it use to. I hate when the vyvanse wears off because Im depressed and not motivated. Is the effexor the same way? Iv been looking for something to work for years for my ADD inattentive and depression with anxiety. Could you give me some more information about both of these conditions. Like whats the best combination of medications for this?
I am not on vyvanse and have never heard of it if u want i can do some research for u. Bit the effexor XR is great i mean great for panic and depression i also have agoraphobia (trouble leaving home) i also take xanax mostly at night but ever since the effexor xr i have been out of the house more functional going to school it is just an online college but i notice different things about me like venturing out and such like right now i just traveled by myself on a atraing to see my brother something i would never do without the effexor xr u are on the right road to getting better it just takes time for the full affect. i see this was posted 9 months ago i hope u are doing ok? if u have any further questions just ask me and also for ADD are u medicated for that i take a very old drug for that called dexedrine spansule most docs dont put u on that they try the new ones first like strattera which is great non stimulant concerta ritalin adderal the best on the new ones in my opinion is what my son is on Concerta it is time released and has ritalin aand adderal mixed. hope this helped lol to u janymak
My son is on Vyvanse 30mg. He is 12. It works great for his Add. He used to be on Stratera but it caused him anger and felt really pist off. We then changed to Vyvanse. His doctor said he thought he would be on the same dose as an adult. Maybe you just need an adjustment of the Vyvanse. My son takes it first thing in the morning. The effects go away around supper time. Also it cuts his appetite especially at lunch. Hope this helps. smileyhappy.
