Comorbid adult ADD, depression, and anxiety

Posted by Paul on October 26, 1998, at 22:14:08

I pretty much experience all of the above to some extent. After consulting a counselor and a psychiatrist, who apparently see the ADD symptoms as my most salient ones, I have been prescribed Ritalin in addition to the Wellbutrin SR, which I have been taking for six months. This combination has caused severe headaches and irritable bowel syndrome and though the Ritalin helps, it tends to contribute to anxiety. Is it common to simultaneously take Ritalin and a benzodiazepine, to sort of "take the edge off?"

As regards the antidepressant, I am not too impressed with Wellbutrin. My unprofessional sort of theoretical hypothesis is that it doesn't deal enough with serotonin, which could account for the fact that it doesn't affect my emotions very much.

Does anyone have experience they'd like to share about any combinations of the above pharmaceuticals?

You can email me or just respond. Thanks in advance.
