Hi- my 13 year old is on 50 mg of vyvanse and 10 mg of methylphenidate for after school. It helps but he still struggles in school even though he is a smart kid – just don’t think we have hit it right – I feel like he may have mild anxiety too although was not found to be clinical .If you don’t mind can I ask about why you do strattera and vyvanse? I am wondering if he needs a dual treatment and I heard of this combination one other time but not often . Does the strattera help with anxiousness? I was going to ask his DR. about guanfacine to help with anxiety. I have tried a lot of different stimulants and doses but not combination – at a loss for next step Thanks
