I finally found a place that takes people w/o insurance!! It's a faith-based non-profit that has therapists and psychiatrists. The Pychiatrist was really nice and thought that I should try restart Prozac which I have taken on and off since 2003. I do have depression and anxiety so it won't go to waste but I also have ADD and would like to try a med for that too!! In some ways I appreciate her cautious approach butI wanted to try an ADD med to see if it works and have time to get them adjusted as I'll be started some very difficult nursing courses Jan. 3, 2011 and my ADD must be addressed or I feel I'll be a mess. I'll be seeing her in 3 weeks to assess how the Prozac is going. Any thoughts?? Thanks!!

Beware of the withdrawal of Prozac (brain zaps).
