I'm diagnosed with, and medicated for, BPD and ADD. I've been taking Depakote and Vyvanse for a few years now. My wife said I was displaying facial tics (tardive dyskinesia) from the Vyvanse. I didn't detect it but she insisted. My doctor doesn't think it's likely. Anyway, I stopped taking Vyvanse and my wife hasn't hasn't mentioned a tic since. But I can't focus like I did when medicated and it's clear to me that my work performance is negatively impacted - and that's a problem.
I recently heard of Provigil and am wondering if that medicine might be a good alternative to Vyvanse in addressing ADD and whether it meshes well with Depakote for BPD.
Any thoughts or experience with this? or alternatives?
