Sounds very familiar. It really sounds like a dopamine-related issue. SSRI's likely won't help, but stimulants probably will. I lost a good deal of mental sharpness through college, only regaining it when I realized the simplistic but pervasive serotonin hypothesis is faulty--and sought treatment for ADD-related symptoms.

I didn't have a good experience with Strattera, and only a minimally good one with Wellbutrin. Irritation was my main complaint with both. But this is really an indication of my unique biochemistry and not a mark against either of these meds.

If you could get to a good and personable neurologist, that would be helpful I'm sure. Psychiatrists who are keen on neuroscience are also invaluable.
