paxil, ritalin, add, & addiction

Posted by SB on July 2, 1999, at 13:39:19

I am 31 years old and have been on 20 mg Paxil for about 5 months for mild depression and anxiety. My father is a physician and prescribed this for me. I was recently diagnosed with ADD by another physician who put me on Ritalin 30 mg/day. I knew better than to ask my father about treament for ADD, because he is no fool when it comes to me & drugs. I know the ritalin is helping, and so far I have not partied with the supply. I know this is all too possible, and I am trying to find the inner strength to stay on the prescribed doseage. I had never been a serious drug user over the years. Yeah, I have done just about everything but have never felt the sting of addiciton until I got in over my head with Hydrocodone. This went off and on for about 4 years after an automobile accident. I just loved the buzz more than any other buzz I had ever had. To make a long story short, it got to the point where I had basically an unlimited, but somewhat risky supply of the stuff. I was busted by my dad getting the stuff which was a blessing. I knew I needed long over-due counseling/treatment for my ADD. Can anyone out there relate? Offer advice? Thanks.
