He is doing somewhat better, but we’re still working on getting the best result. After trying several different meds, including Wellbutrin, we ended up back on Vyvanse at 30 mg, and his grades went from F’s to B’s and C’s. He is now asking to increase to 40mg and we’ll be talking to his MD about that after Christmas break. As for the OCD, he is taking Lexapro 20 mg and it seems to be working fairly well, with him having a thought (he has bad thought OCD) or two every so many days if particularly stressed. He was first tried on Zoloft, but that med caused bad tics. Even though Lexapro is also a SSRI, it does not cause tics for some reason like the Zoloft did.
