GAD: Anxiety and fear thoughts go hand-in-hand. Try some relaxation techniques to bring on the 'relaxation response' and this should alleviate the fear thoughts to a significant degree. There are some great tapes/CDs out there and probably some for free online. Just do a search for 'relaxation exercises.' Exercise also helps. Good luck.

Multiple Meds: Wellbutrin (bupropion) and Zoloft are commonly taken together. Don't know so much about Vyvanse ... but it's not uncommon to see individuals on more than one SSRI antidepressant as well as ADHD meds. Best to contact your treating physician and ask.

Anxiety symptom: Pupils dilate during the 'fight or flight' response, which can alter perception and create a sense of of unreality. Short, shallow breaths can add to the effect. Diaphragmatic breaths can help. Breath in to fill the area behind your belly button ... short pause ... then breath out slowly. Hope this helps.
