I agree with Zeke's suggestion for a ssir + stim. I am a male with a diagnosis of dysthymia and ADD-H. Take Parnate 50mg/day, lithium 900mg/day with excellent results. I ended up on Parnate after years of searching and trying all of the others. He (your doc) should have no problem working in an ssri. Wellbutrin is a good drug, but works weakly on dopamine, and from what I understand, that is about all. It's quirky and to tell the truth, they do not completely understand what it does (like a lot of drugs). Adderall is a combo of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine (I think), I know it is not a combo of dextro and ritalin. I'd push hard for a ssri or another catagory such as Effexor etc...

What have you taken in the past other than the current meds? For how long? And how is your doc open to YOUR suggestons?

Hang in there, it will get better, too many people on this forum will veryfy this.
