>Is anyone benefiting from their meds?

Well, you know my story, but if others don't, yes, I found the right meds and I benefit from them. Strattera in particular has made it possible to manage the ADD symptoms that led to depression and more anxiety, and make them bearable. I can manage what's left (and with my ADD, it's plenty) with therapy, help from family and self-help strategies.

Years back, when I was depressed for quite a while, enough to where I was losing daily functioning and becoming a hermit, Prozac and later Strattera helped.

I probably shouldn't post my story because I know few can relate. I responded well to the first AD tried and the 1st and 2nd ADD meds tried, so I dont know what it's like to go through trials for years.

But I figure maybe it'll encourage one poster who is afraid of all drugs or who thinks they are "bad." They vastly improve my quality of life.


>>especially for bored depression

What is bored depression?


MDD (presently in complete remission); ADD-Inattentive type; mild anxiety (not fomally dx'd)
