Adderall + Zoloft

Posted by Willbc on April 20, 2004, at 7:59:28

I was diagnosed with ADD about five months ago. I've been taking 20mg of Adderall XR and I find it to help. Additionally, almost two months ago I was diagnosed with mild depression and I am currently taking 100mg of Zoloft. While the Zoloft seems to take the edge off of the Adderall (and seemingly helps alleviate my mild depression), it also makes me more lethargic than I would like---as if somewhat cancelling the effects of the Adderral. It's as if both meds are helping me, but it is as if the "right balance/dosage" may not be there (or perhaps there is another med I should be taking, in addition?) I feel as if going from 20mg of Adderral XR to 25mg may just be the answer, but I get the impression that my psychiatrist does not like to go much above 20mg because of an increase in side effects (including withdrawal-like symptoms.) Does anyone have any insights or suggestions, or both? p.s. this is my first time posting and I look forward to your responses---thank you
