> Well, at this point I'm not looking to 'fix' anything. I have severe ADD and depression and probably narcolepsy as well, and the pills I take don't 'fix' these conditions, they are PART of the coping itself. i feel like every day I am trying to work out ways of coping with a lifetime of trauma, and this is the way i have felt forever. My anxiety has been so intense that i have suffered from malnutrition because i lose my appetite completely under stress. Even with Strattera I need to drink about six to eight cups of coffee a day to manage my lack of concentration and energy. I see a therapist weekly, but as i have told her, I have been in therapy since the age of 12, and on balance , it has done FAR more harm than good (this therapist is the first one i trust since one i saw in the hospital at 21). the only thing that has cleared a space large enough for me to function is the appropriate medication. So I disagree with your premise that dependency will worsen the underlying problem. The medications do treat the 'underlying biological problem.'

Everyone is different, and responds to medication differently, so if you have found a combo that works for you then i guess you'd be one of the lucky few. If you still have these problems then maybe the strattera isn't effective treatment, and caffeine can be making anxiety even worse. i mostly agree about therapy doing lots of harm. i guess it helps some people, but i'm with you in the bunch that it hasn't. i'm in a decent mood tonight so i can say, optimistically, that someday hopefully we'll all figure it out (and if we don't i guess we kept ourselves busy for quite a while)
