She is 46. Our first child just left for college and then marriage problems started. She works overnight in a high stress environment surrounded by men. Worried about her mental state, very mean and easily agitated. Lack of interest in anything.
My wife takes Wellbutrin and Vyvanse and now has been prescribed Lexapro. Is this OK?

Hi, James! It seems somewhat of a heavy load of medications with some potential interactions:
Your wife should be made aware of the possible symptoms of an interaction and be monitored by her doctor very closely.
I assume all three medications were prescribed by the same doctor? If not, both doctors must be made aware of the drugs she's taking.
Best regards and I hope everything works out well for the two of you. Wildcat
Good to hear from a caring and obviously loving spouse. As WildCatVet responded, that is enough medication to cause a little concern. Glad to hear that the Physician is aware of the meds.
The next question then is the daily dosage of all three. If you were to reply 30 mg Vyvanse, 150 mg Wellbutrin, and 5 mg Lexapro, that would not be concerning. However, if the dosages were double those amounts, I think I would be questioning the Doctor's judgment., especially for the first 2 meds (while Lexapro should be somewhat calming).
Anyway, I hope your wife is able to regain her composure and achieve some serenity through this. Take care for now.
