Just be careful how you treat the depression. SSRIs can be aggravate inattentive ADD, and if complications from that are what cause you to feel depressed, those feelings might persist. Lexapro might be okay (I take it at a low dose with only mild aggravation of ADD.) Prozac too-- and I think this one makes a lot of sense as SSRIs go. MAOIs might help with all symptoms, but they come with 'strict' restrictions. It would seem prudent to go for a middle ground, treating the broadest spectrum. Maybe a low dose of an SSRI with Wellbutrin, or Nardil or Parnate by itself. There are plenty of options :)

Best wishes,
