In reply to EFFEXOR for ADD? frustrated w/ my psychiatrist, posted by snarley on February 12, 2004, at 16:52:25


In my opinion - get a second opinion. I don't trust doctors who don't use meds that were designed for a specific purpose FOR that specific purpose - make sense? Meaning, Adderall/Ritalin/Dexedrine are FDA approved for ADD. Yada yada - you know this I'm sure.

Anyway, I had a doc who was completely against benzos - like Ativan, etc - he said "Everyone gets addicted to them - everyone." However, then he turned around and wrote me a script for 3 refills of Adderall - an AMPHETAMINE!?

I'm on Effexor 150 now as well and have added Concerta (long acting Ritalin). It works well. See a doc who knows what he/she is doing and isn't afraid of meds. That's what I did.

Hope this helps
