ADD and Depression

Posted by Andy on April 26, 2000, at 3:58:46

I'm an 18 year old male on Dexadrine. I have been taking Dexadrine since 7th grade and before that I had been on Ritalin beginning in 3rd grade (I was on as much as 80 mgs a day at times). I am not on a regular amount on dexadrine. My neurologist has advised me to take the medicine when I feel I need it.
Recently I had a fit, or episode, directed at my best friend and at the time girlfriend (she also has ADD and is on Dexadrine). Since that time I have felt increasingly depressed and have been wondering whether or not I may need to be put on some type of anti-depressant. I feel increasingly depressed whenever I have time on my hands.
I am at a very good college (Washington and Lee University) yet I feel that I have been dealt a bad hand in life since I haven't done anything to deserve this disease. I find myself taking out this fustration on the people I care about. I'm concerned that I am going to lose those people who a care about especially my best friend.
She has seen me through a lot of bad stuff in the past year and knows me better then anyone, yet lately she doesn't seem to be willing to help me. Am I doing the right thing by trying to make her understand (which I hope will make the depression thing go away)or should I let it go and persue this depression thing as a greater problem?
I'd appreciate any comments or help on the issue
