Re: Good combination for ADD/depression...

Hi Everyone,

I've been reading your postings with great interest.

I'm being treated for depression and not ADD, but I have similar side-effects with my meds as you do. I would like to change from synthetic meds to natural ones, or at least supplement with the alternatives.

My major side-effects are tiredness, sleepiness, physical fatigue, weight gain, and mental cloudiness.

I'm taking Effexor XR and was taking Prozac with it. I stopped Prozac yesterday and started 5-HTP, 50 mg twice daily as an AD and an appetite suppressant (but it makes me sleepy!).

I read somewhere that adding Ritalin to AD's can elevate the tiredness and weight gain.

Can anyone help me out?
