Your post was interesting as I am in the same awful situation. I also have bipolar 11 plus add and like you have tried so many meds. The SSRI's make me feel drugged and unwell. On my first day of prozac I almost jumped out of my skin I was so anxious and paranoid. On effexor I felt speedy and dopey at the same time with terrible acidic stomach pains. Wellbutrin not only made my hair fall out in clumps but made be anxious and did not relieve my depression. Lamictal on it's own produced a seething dysphoric mania. With other meds such as serzone, tolerable but no real relief. Gabapenten made me retain water and my weight shot up by 15 pounds in one month, no kidding! I hate the way lithium makes me feel. Now I take 150mg of trazadone at night with lamictal and serzone in the day. But still deeply depressed and the add is getting worse. I was recently sacked from my job for lack of concentration. Huge shock, but I know to some extent it is true. Because I live overseas in a country where stimulants are banned I resorted to ordering the diet pill ionomin from the net. Well, the ionomin (phentermine) caused a paranoid anxious reaction and now I have to stop taking it after one week of trying to ignore the anguish. My question to all you kind and caring people out there, is this. Is phentermine related to the other stims and therefore will I have a similiar anxious reaction to them? Is strattera also the same kind of drug and again would it produce a similiar reaction? Final question, does anyone know when strattera will be available in Canada? I am returning there to live this summer and I know that as of now it is not available, and neither is adderal. Wishing all of you happiness and contentment however you find it.
