Adderall queries(excuse any redundancy)&emoting

Posted by CarolAnn(and the trouble I seen...) on December 7, 1999, at 10:43:14

First, thank you for all the valuable advice I have found on this board so-far. I never want to be a bother with my HEAVY emotional times, but here goes:
I've been so far down the past couple months that it's something of a miracle to be here to tell the tale. Have spent as much time in bed as my 19 month old daughter's needs can spare. Am so overwhelmed by even the simplest of tasks that it is a huge achievement(for the whole day!) to get the brkfast dishes into washer! Even "fun" holiday events seem like major chores that I wish I could get out of. And the worse thing, the thing that makes me feel like an absolute monster in human disguise: My widowed father-in-law is coming for a two and 1/2 week visit over Xmas & New Year's, and I find myself actually(truly!) wishing he would die, so I won't have to deal with all the work involved(he's elderly & pretty helpless). Okay, all done emoting for now, moving on...

Saw Pdoc today. Due to almost "suicidal" levels of fatigue, he has taken me off Serzone(well, have to taper off next few days). He wants me to give the 400mgs per day Wellbutrin some more time to judge effectiveness. We discussed possibilty of my having "atypical Add"(description in previous thread for 'newbies'). He agreed it was possible and started me on 10mgs Adderall twice daily.
Now Questions(no time to ask him due to "managed care's" 15 minute limit for "medication management" appt.) :(
Does this seem like enough dosage to be helpful stimulant-wise?
Should I feel some immediate results(like with each dose?), or does it build up to results?
How long should I give this dosage before seeking a possible increase?
Considering I haven't yet gotten any stimulant effect from the Wellbutrin, do you think adding the Adderall will make a difference there?
Anyone have any other information that would be helpful?
