Hi Noa,

I have ADD too, and take Adderall (and now Strattera as well) for that, which help a lot. But I started those well after benzos, and Klonopin seems to have made the most difference for ruminating thoughts. The Adderall and Strattera help keep me focused and improve my mood, and the Klonopin tones down my exaggerated worry and "what if" syndrome.

Strattera is a recent addition and I find it very helpful, but Adderall plus Klonopin was a powerful combo in itself. The ADs I tried (Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin etc.) just made things worse, and now I avoid them, which my pdoc agrees with.

Bit by bit, things are getting better.
