I am in the same boat as you. Im only 25, and I have everything going for me, except I have been battling anxiety/depression/ocd on and off for as long as I could remember. I started on the Strattera just a week ago, but the key is to stick to a medicine for at least 3-4 weeks just to get a picture of how you will react to that certain family of meds. Also, reading these posts is probably the worst thing for you and I. Keep in mind that most of the people on these sites are the people with the bad reactions to these meds. the people that have been successful on these meds most likely dont come into chat rooms b/c they are too busy enjoying the benefits. Well, Im rambling, good luck.
> Hi , I am a veteran and use the V.A. medical hospitals for my treatments. I was diagnoised with ADD a few years back and was refused medication because of my age (late 30's) and because the VA does not like to subscribe Retelin or other ADD, ADHD meds. I have lived most my life scattered brained with a constant life movie going on in my head, depression and anxiety is a life time compainion.. my question... has this really helped anyone with my similar problems? I am afraid to get my hopes up.
