I was diagnosed with ADD in March of this year. In some ways it's been a relief to know the root cause of all this, but in other ways I'm so much more frustrated than before. I'm currently on 70mg of Vyvanse and I'm pretty happy with it for the most part. I find myself increasingly frustrated at my lack of progress. Sometimes it's almost as if the medication clears the fog enough to realize how bad things have gotten but not enough to change things. My doctor suggested yesterday that I might also have a very high level of anxiety and presribed Lexapro. She felt it was an issue as well. I'm willing to try, but I'm not happy about taking two medications now. I'm working with diet, exercise and therapy but it's just getting old. I'm tired of feeling like my entire life consists of trying to be "normal" whatever that is.
