I am a 28 year old male with ADHD and seemingly no comorbid diseases such as OCD or bipolarity. I have potential for minor seizures, so Wellbutrin is out. I tried it previously and it seemed to have no effect. Recently I had panic attacks, which had never happened before. The neurologist put me on Effexor and Xanax. The panic attacks subsided, and now I'm back to looking for daily management of the ADHD. The latest neurologist and psychiatrist are replacing the Effexor with Celexa and the Xanax with Klonopin. These are all basically anxiety and depression medications. The SSRIs seem like the way to go, but I wonder about the stimulants. I'm kind of leary of them. Anyone in a similar situation that could offer an anectdote or advice? Specifically, Celexa in combination with other drugs for 'typical' ADHD.
