Cognitive Impairment, lack of motivation, etc.

Posted by Confusedcius on September 27, 2017, at 12:09:10

I'm 27 years old and struggling with cognitive impairment, no motivation, social anxiety, no libido (lost at about age 21 BEFORE going on an SSRI), no self confidence, irritability, etc.

The cognitive problems go all the way back to when I was a little child. Basically, I've always felt dumber than the average person. And lazier.. I would always want to stay home from school and play videogames. Which turned into staying on the computer and there I still am to this day.

It has gotten so bad that all I do all day is sit on my computer, still living in my parents house. My life is so hopeless that I've considered suicide.

I've tried lots of supplements and nothing helped.

Medications I've tried: Zoloft generic, Lexapro generic, Wellbutrin XL generic, Ritalin SR generic. The only one that helped was the Wellbutrin XL generic and only for the first 1-2 weeks on it and then I went back to how I was prior, even after staying on it for a few months and increasing the dosage to 450mg.

I've seen many mental health professionals including psychologists & psychiatrists which have all been ineffective (very hard to find a GOOD psychiatrist that accepts Medicaid). I was thinking of going back to one former psychiatrist and actually suggesting that I go on Adderall XR or Vyvanse since it seems like my problems are Dopamine/Norepinephrine related and because of the positive initial response to Wellbutrin.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Feel free to ask questions.
