Running out of med options...

In reply to Re: Wellbutrin plus Effexor? (and Prozac too!), posted by Quinn on May 21, 2003, at 21:25:10

Hi, I have just become a group member after reading several of the messages posted over the years and I want to start by saying thanks to everyone who has contributed to this site! You are all really wonderful people.

So if anyone out there is able to respond to my situation, I would truly appreciate it. Here's the story (and I will do my best to keep it as short as possible-promise)

I have been on meds for about 10 years now and have tried almost all of them. I have used several antidepressants(Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor, Prozac, Wellbutrin, Serzone and Trazadone)stimulants (adderall, ritalin, dexedrine) anti-anxiety meds (Buspar, valium, xanax, and beta blockers) mood stabilizers (lithium, depakote, lamictal, topamax, neurontin) other meds for ADHD, fatigue and depression (provigil, straterra, gabitril) not to mention the ones I probably forgot.

I have been diagnosed with a variety of different "labels" depending on the doctor. These include bipolar II, atypical depression, anxiety and adult ADHD.

My current symptoms include irritability (especiaaly low frustration tolerance) fatigue, loss of motivation, low self esteem and anger.

Currently, I am taking adderall (20 mg a day) and xanax (to keep me sane at work) while waiting to switch to an MAOI (selgiline). Most recently I have found the SSRI's to "poop out" and leave me switching meds, with most other meds side effects completely unbearable.

So my questions are... Has anyone ever used adderall with selegiline?
Anyone experience these symptoms and if so what worked?
Any suggestions or comments?

I want to thank anyone who will respond to this as I know it is hard to take the time to read this - far less post a response. Again THANKS!
