Hi there. I am 18 years old now but awhile back, I was put on these same 2 medications. I started out low on vyvanse (40mg) and lexapro (10mg). I had taken many other prescriptions but I found out I was allergic to them. These really helped me. The thing is that after awhile, I started to level out where the meds weren't working as well so I had to increase the dosage. I was at 70mg and 20mg for awhile when I started doing a mind modulation. Its kind of hard to explain, but if you have questions, please message me. After doing this mind modulation for about a month, I was able to decrease my vyvanse dosage. I hope this helps at least a little bit.

What symptoms did you have to require these medications?
