Re: Adderall queries(excuse any redundancy)&emoting

First, I keep wondering about the 'atypical ADD' dx which I've never heard before. (I've read your previous posts.) However, 'atypical depression' is used and may be what he means. Or as Noa commented, it may be the w/o hyperactivity form (primarily inattentive) or 'not otherwise specified'.

How long do you give it? Well the doc meant the Wellbutrin. How long have you been at 400mg/day? You shouldn't go much higher on Wellbutrin because of the risk of seizures. For Adderal, its own effect should be immediate, but a positive interaction with the Wellbutrin (potentiation) may be delayed -- but then Wellbutrin may even block the some of the actions of amphetamine (ie, in limbic areas).

If you don't get any effect from the Wellbutrin at this dose of Adderall, why not ask about dumping the Wellbutrin and trying a SSRI + Adderall?
