I am a 40yr old F with ADD and/or depression. I've tried several stims alone and in combination with Wellbutrin. Currently I am taking 150 Well. , 75 effexor, and 10 mg ADDerall (Adderall I take twice a day. The ADs make me less upset about the ADD symptoms, but don't change them. I didn't think the stims helped at all, but since I've been cut back from 30mg a dose to 10, I am having more trouble with foorgetfulness and orginization than I was before. My blood pressure is up since stzrting the effexor. I also had a sinus infection when I sttarted it and Had a horrible headache off and on for two weeks. I'm not sure how much of that was the effexor and how much sinus. My son also "has" ADD without the H. I think my psychiatrist thinks I'm also anxious and that's why he went for the effexor. I understand it was recently approved to be prescribed for anxiety. ADD, Depression, Anxiety---Which came first the chicken or the egg? Has anyone had success with treatment for similar problems? Have any of you tried cognitive behavior therapy along with your meds? How did tit go? I am reading a great book about cognitive behavior therapy ideas to try on your own called Feeling Good by David Burns. I think it is helping with the anxiety adn depression. I highly recommend it!
