> I *have* tried Wellbutrin. Yes oh yes. When I wasn't busy errupting geyser-like with hostile impatience, I would pass the time doing things like rototilling the garden...without a rototiller. To relax I'd curl up in a ball of unrelenting anxeity.
That nearly choked me, too funny. I read it to my husband who said, "Someone who can write like that really should do it professionally." Highest praise from him.
As for the Strattera, I had the same trepidation when I asked about it. What I liked about it was that I felt LIKE ME. I did not feel drugged, I did not feel foggy, I did not feel dazed and stupid. I felt clear, and that felt so very, very good.
The down side, maybe, is that feeling like me kinda does mean feeling a little hyper, a little irritable -- no doc, I'm not BP, just bitchy -- and generally erupting geyser-like with hostile impatience. And don't keep saying that like it's a bad thing, 'K? (I told my therapist once that my goal was to become a bitch. She got it, too.)
But it's certainly worth a try, good luck with it.
