In reply to Re: Straterra- anyone using as stimulant? Lexxey, posted by Magpie on April 7, 2003, at 12:12:10

Thanks to all who answered me. I did take the test at mindfixers.com and came up w/ types 2 and 5 ADD, plus depression. I am hoping fixing the ADD - which I see now but didn't before - will solve the depression. I probably got depressed cuz I couldn't keep up with things with the ADD.

Cybercafe - back in the days when I worked in an office I was diagnosed w/ chronic fatigue, because like you, by noon I felt I needed to sleep. Since then I have held slaes jobs where I have worked from home, but have always struggled with either hyperfocusing or not working at all.

My PD now discounted my question about ADD, so I am looking for another doctor as I type.

I'm so sick of spinning my wheels. I really need to get a job - and also I am having a really hard time with my diet and exercise. In the past I have been able to motivate, but it seems impossible currently.

Thanks again all,

PV

PS Strattera isn't a stim - as you know - it works like Prozac, but targets Dopamine instead of Seretonin. I'm already on Effexor which is also supposed to help, but it seems to have just helped the depression so far.
