I take Vyvanse 50 mg daily for my ADD- inattentive type disorder, but with a work injury that has kept me on worker's comp since 7/2013 and now facing a 2nd surgery for this injury, the stress level and the inability to be active keeps me on this roller coaster ride of depression. I was wondering if adding an anti-depressant in this situation would be effective or perhaps changes in synthroid and HRT dosages are warranted to try to balance this out. I am comfortable knowing that there is absolutely nothing wrong, except the toll of this injury, but I really can't stand myself in this state and the depression and tears need to stop.View Thread
