In reply to Adderall + Zoloft, posted by Willbc on April 20, 2004, at 7:59:28

Hi, I was on Zoloft for 3 yrs , up to 100mg. It seemed to help with depression, but thats it. I recently switched over to lexapro to give it a try. Im only on 10mg, but im telling my doc to up it.
Anyway, i was recently diagnosed with add, and perscribed adderall 20mg 2x daily. It really helped me alot. I became more motivated, concentration, i could keep on one task at a time. But i noticed late night insomnia. A few nights, i didnt sleep. BUT i noticed one good thing. It didnt make me shaky or nervous like other stimulants. Iv been researching adderall and psycostimulants. They release dopamine from the nucleas accumbens, your pleasure center, unlike ephedrine or caffiene where there not too good for add , and they have alot more peripheral stimulation (anxiety).

But id say Zoloft is the best antidepressant. Im just giving it a rest, because it didnt help me much with social phobia. I wasnt depressed or angry though. I noticed lexapro , was told by a pdoc at a rehab, she told me lexapro was a bit stronger and less side effects. I noticed a bit of my sex drive has come back,but that may be from adderall.

Im no expert here, im posting another post on my current med combo if you wish to read it.
