Thanks Maggie -
I was asking because I have grown quite close to my neighbor, who has Parkinson's, and some Mirapex. I know its a dopamine thing, and so is this apathy/inattentive ADD. I tried a .125 mg one day around noon - I was so depressed, and it seemed to boost me - but for her it puts her to sleep. Probably psychosomatic, though. But that night I took .375 and could NOT sleep! But my brain was positive - creative -hopefull! I actually exercised the next morning - like my old self! I have been rather afraid to take anymore, I don't want some doctor to refuse me for being self-medicating - which could be a good thing now days, since some doctors know less than we do - but I digress. So I'm kind of existing - and I'm trying to get an appt w/ a good adult ADD Dr. in San Diego. I am very hopefull - I have known on a certain level, I think, that depression is NOT what it so all about. I do have depression - maybe because of the ADD, maybe in addition to, but I'm NOT bipolar and, the main reason I'm depressed is because I KNOW that I'm smart enough to handle things, but somehow, I can't/don't - make sense?
