I am a 20 year old female, and I was diagnosed with depression about a year ago. I have been on citalopram, but I am now currently on prozac. I was just wondering if vyvanse can be prescribed for just depression? One of my best friends (who has a little bit of ADHD going on) was recently prescribed vyvanse to help with her depression and ADHD. I am 99% sure I don't have ADHD. I think my inability to focus is more anxiety related, but I was wondering if vyvanse could be prescribed for only depression. Or do you also have to be diagnosed with ADHD? I'm just kind of at a loss for what else to try at this point. I would like really like to get better, so I just need opinions. Is it worth asking a doctor?
There are lots of medication combo's and even just dosage adjustment to prozac that may help. Really depends on your symptoms and only the doc can assess that. Sounds like you have both depression and anxiety problems so that's a place to start. Yes, I think it is worth discussing symptoms with the doc, but not necessarily Vyvanse.
Hi, i agree with Laurie, Vyvanse is probably not a good medication in your case. I would definitely discuss treatment options with your doctor/psychiatrist, as a dose adjustment could help or other medications considered... i take a combination of 3 psychotropic medications to treat my BPD & depression/GAD. It took a while to come up with a good combination and correct dosages but it has definitely been worth it. You will find the right solution, just work with your doctor and try to stay positive
