Hi racer,

I have all three of the above. Up until a few months ago, I was on 4 different types of anti-depressants and lithium all at once. Everytime I felt any incling of a symptom of depression, I'd request my psychiatrist to give me more pills, QUICK (how's that, lots of anxiety about depression). I love my pills! Three months ago, we also figured out I have attention deficit disorder, and I began taking Dexedrine. Well now I am on no anti-depressants, 300 mg of lithium, 10 mg of Dexedrine, and I haven't felt better in years. The dexedrine was what I needed. It's a stimulant, and helps people with ADD concentrate long enough to do things they simply can't do because it simply bores the hell out of them. It has not only relieved me of these symptoms, but it has relieved me of, what I thought was, depression. Even the depressive days of my cyclothymic cycles are bearable. Dexedrine starts and keeps me on a cycle where even though I may be having a chemically bad day (on my cyclothymic cycle), at least I get things accomplished, and the next day is better because of this. and so on and so on.

Dexedrine also decreases appetite, so you may have a problem getting it if your doctor knows your anorexic. My weight's stable at 115 lb (acceptable) and I haven't, this far, abused any drugs. It may be worth your while to try it.

I had horses my whole childhood. I love the company of animals. Enjoy them.
