I hope this settles down also like the adhd is worse when i go out side i get non stop music and random thoughts at home is a bit better now least i can function until i get the adhd assessment
Sertraline 50 mg has been wonderful for me. Funny how we can all react so
differently to the same meds. Glad you figured it out.

Re: brain fog and adhd

Just found out that my vitamin D was Low and under the recommended amount maybe this is why i felt blarr and could not function and muscle pains.

I think ssris can lower vitamin D. I never realised it was so important so maybe this Adhd will improve but i have always had it since i was young so still going to a adhd specialist

I have Fibromyalgia and think that adding Vitamin D3 has improved my symptoms.

It should be Vitamin D3.

It's too bad it affected you that way ... and for so long.

I can only wish I'd been given an SSRI 10 years (or more) sooner.
For me, it's made my life enjoyable at last.

Re: brain fog and adhd

I have lived with Brain Fog for years. I was 1st told I was ADD when I was getting my 1st Masters back in 93 at age 39. I have been on and off medicine due to health issue. I am now cured so I went back on a type of Vivance (speed) at 64 I want to see if I can focus better.
