> wingedcat, did you say you on Effexor? Whoever? I would have to say your anxiety is from Effexor not the adderall or maybe it's the combo. I was on 300mg daily of Effexor, Provigil (not unlike adderall) and Lexapro, bad, ooh bad combo. I tapered off the Lexapro, things got better, then the Effexor much, much better then the Provigil lastly. Much better, wiping sweat off my brow! I found this thread because I too am wanting to start a regiment of Selegeline. Dopamine pathway is the way to go I've read. Been on anti upon anti for 5 years and believe it was all a waste!
No I'm not on Effexor, they keep trying to give me it but I don't want it because I kept hearing horror stories from you and many others. My depression has lifted after a few weeks of Selegiline and I've stopped it for now. I've had severe anxiety since I was a small child and it's several panic attacks a day now and I can barely function. I finally saw a psychiatrist it was a disaster and I felt ignored and confused. The hunt for a doctor that I feel comfortable with continues. Selegiline did help better than anything else I've tried as far as depression goes, so hopefully soon it will be approved and you can let me know about your trial with it :)
