Sounds like we're in exactly the same place, and have the same problems to be treated too (although little criteria were used to diagnose ADD in me -- I know they're actually not mutually exclusive but I still think OCD spectrum may be all there is to the overheated thought processes). My blood pressure was high too for the first time ever, but when it was taken I had been off the Ritalin for a week, and had also quit working out during the prior year. Wellbutrin makes me very agitated with no mood lift as well (and is not good for OCD, I hear), and I don't want to try Effexor. After I get some medical testing done, if nothing is found, I'm thinking about looking into Strattera. In addition to treating ADD, it's supposed to have antidepressant effects for some. Have you thought about that at all?

> I know what your talking about.Ritalin was wonderful for about 2 months.I was calm and focused, then the calmness left and I was easily angered and hyper.Then full blown panic attacks and high blood pressure followed.I've stopped taking it.Dex was great on day 1,then days 2,3,and 4 I was glum and anxious.Stopped it because the depression was to much.Wellbutrin I gave up on as well because of anxiety and elevated high blood pressure.I need a med that will help my depression,ADD and fatigue.I don't know what to do.
