An idea OF the phone? Literally do not know what you are asking. Happy to help if you clarify.

*over the phone

From a cold call or a referral?

What does being in another state have to do with anything other than making sure you’re licensed in that state??

I have a prescription for Vyvanse. Even without Vyvanse, I have diagnosed generalized anxiety. On top of that, depression runs in my family. It’s not a diagnosis, but I suspect it’s there. Vyvanse certainly doesn’t help the anxiety, especially when I’m coming down off it for the day. I want to ask my doctors about an anti-anxiety/depression meds, but does anyone here take ADHD meds and those other meds at the same time? I’m worried about the drug interactions/potential physical effects. TIA.
