Thanks to both jamie and andrewb for some insight.
The point about difficulties in creating a cocktail
are very valid I guess. At the moment I am finding
that the doctors I am seeing dont have knowledge
in both mainstream and "natural" pharmaceuticals,
and I am feeling rather frustrated.

In your opinion, what "mainstream" drugs could you
recommend? My experience with Piracetam & Choline
alone has always been very good for concentration
and verbal capabilities (w.r.t. ADD), but I found
that it sometimes winds me up too much. Same goes
for previous experiments with 20mg Prozac, it made
me very happy, but on edge and a little too forthcoming.
Kava Kava did seem to help.

Serzone knocked me out in doses over 200mg per day.

What is problematic is that the depression exists
as a result of the ADD, diagnosed only now at age
27. As you can imagine, mood swings prevail in me,
depending on external stimuli and circumstances.
Because it takes me a while to get going, a stimulating
substance is definitely of importance. I used to
love Pircacetam&Choline for breakfast. An
anti-depressant is in order to keep me going between
my weekly therapy... until I am strong enough
to ween myself of it.

I was also considering mabe taking 10mg fluoxetine (Prozac)
with a small dose of Wellbutrin, and take
Kava Kava for the resulting anxiety. Apparently
in some cases the Wellbutrin "counteracts" some
of the sexual dysfunction side effects of fluoxetine.

By the way, the amino acids glutamine and
phenylalanine I am taking are part of a generic
"restores" ( L-tyrosine is separate.
restores has been labelled as a natural alternative
to ritalin.

I really wish I was capable of putting it in a box. ;)

Your further input is very welcome.
