Hello again Kathy!

I have read several postings suggesting that Effexor PLUS Ritalin or Adderall is just the ticket for many suffering ADD w/HYPOactivity symptoms. Check the thread further down, titled "Any happy, stable rapid cyclers" and read Mark H's and Scott's response to my post. You may want to ask, I think it was Mark, about that combo.

As for me, Ritalin SR 20mg, 2x a day is working for me. Energy, focus and no depression. Am I dreaming?

I think Paxil sucks but that's just me. And I agree, gaining weight is NOT worth it. The way fat makes me feel rivals any depressive symptom I may have. I have 10-15 pounds I need to dump RIGHT NOW, due to all the different meds I was trying over the last few months. Hopefully, the Ritalin will help me along with that. At least now I have the energy necessary to exercise (and cook more healthily, from scratch). I have plans to buy a used weight bench today. Pretty ambitious, huh?

Wishing you the best,
