> Dear frustratedmom,
> If you don't mind my asking, was your son on the Adderal and Wellbutrin at the same time? If not, how long after the Adderal did he start taking the Wellbutrin? MamaB

Dear MamaB... sorry to take so long to respond to your inquiry. My computer wouldn't access the site for some reason. I don't mind sharing my son's medication history at all. He started taking the Wellbutrin first... prescribed to him for depression resulting from bullying at middle school. He was prescribed the Adderall a lttle over a year later for ADD. While his depression was better, i was told I could not take him off the Wellbutrin and start the Adderall at the same time, so he took both Wellbutrin and Adderall in their fully prescribed dosages for 6 weeks. Then we weaned him off the Wellbutrin. He took the Adderall for 10 months with great success. A few sleep problems at first, but those soon subsided. He is presently back on an anti depressant, but not Wellbutrin. We have some serious concerns that we are investigfating with that drug. He is taking lexapro. He definitely notices his concentration being better since stopping the Straterra and going back to the Adderall. While we were hopeful of a non stimulant having the same benefits, unfortunately for us, it was not the answer. Hope that answers your questions. Frustratedmom
