Re: Test 102. 70 & up is adult ADD

That test confirms my diagnosis of ADHD, most tests do.

In the test for Asperger's & Autism I scored a 34, which indicates that Autism is likely. I've suspected that for a few years now.

My score on the Bipolar test says that is also likely.

I know I've been experiencing Depression for a couple of months now - more than the usual blues I nearly always have, and the test for Depression confirms it: moderate depression. I've been thinking of posting a thread asking if there is a generic (cheap) med for depression? (I don't have health insurance and work only 5 hours a week.)

I have PSTD (several events in childhood and several more as an adult).

But, at least, I don't have Schitzophrenia.

Re: Test 102. 70 & up is adult ADD

Hi Lunacie,

Im not from the US, so I dont know exactly how much medications cost there, but....

I would recommend Prozac generic as it is a relatively old (but efficacious) antidepressant of the SSRI class.

Tricyclics like Imipramine are cheap, but I believe they have a greater likelihood of side-effects.

Avoid Monoamine-Oxidase Inhibitors because they have all kind of dangerous interactions with other prescription meds, OTC meds, cheeses, red wine, organ meats and loads of other things.

Re: Test 102. 70 & up is adult ADD

110 and that's with being medicated for 10 years. Interesting how one can be very high functioning yet have such a bad case of ADHD.

Even on the kids scale I score right off the charts too. I still get in trouble at work for climbing on my desk. I'm 35.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and info. I found an online list of discount meds at the pharmacy where I get my blood pressure med and can compare your notes to that list. I may still post a thread asking for a variety of experiences and reactions to meds for depression. Was wondering if there might be one med that is good at treating both Depression and Anxiety? Although the only anti-anxiety med on my list is Buspirone. There are only 7 meds on the discount list for Depression, but Prozac is one of them. I doubt if the doctor will prescribe it without talking to me in the office first - and spending $60 on the office visit is going to break the bank. Yes, money concerns are part of what triggered the depression.

Re: Test 102. 70 & up is adult ADD

Quick edit: I just did some reading on Prozac to see when it's contra-indicated and Bipolar is one reason. Not only did I show a strong possibility of Bipolar in the test linked to this page, but the family therapist mentioned it as a possibility. Guess Prozac isn't a good option for me.

Re: Test 102. 70 & up is adult ADD

Lunacie,

Most SSRI anti-depressants (and their relatives) are in fact used to treat bipolar (the depressive aspect) & combined with a mood stabilizer and/or benzodiazepine to combat the mania.

Thats the essence of Bipolar really, two extreme opposites counterposed against one another.

Anti-depressants that help with anxiety:

I know that Cipramil (Citalopram) & Lexapro (Escitalopram) are indicated for anxiety as well as depression. But it my case they didnt work for the anxiety, and in any case, if you are bipolar, you WILL need a "downer" in order to offset possible manic side effects of the antidepressants.

Also Lexapro (which I take) is a relatively new medication and a bit on the expensive side.

The best option for you would be Prozac + Ativan (Lorezapam). (a slow acting benzodiazepine anxiolytic).

You'll need your doctor to confirm your bipolar diagnosis, in which case he will also prescribe a mood stabiliser like Depakote (Valproate), Tegretol (Carbemezapine) or Eskalith (Lithium).

NB. While Lithium is cheaper than the other two, there have been cases of it being toxic to some individuals. (Others have taken it for many years with no problems.)

One other thing.. avoid Monamine Oxidase Inhibitor anti-depressants. They have too many potentially fatal interactions with too many other things. One day you'll forget and eat something on the banned list and die
