Lightbulb ADD vs. Depression?????

So here I am, wondering why the Adderall seems not to be working..... Then my wife says, you seem depressed. So I go to the source of all things (The Internet) and do some research on Depression..... WOW, Looks as if I could be depressed! I got all the right stuff! However, when you look at the ADD, I got all the same stuff as well!

Is there any corolation (sp) between Serotonin uptake for both Depression and ADD inconjunction with Addreall????

Thanks in advance for your comments!

Adderal made my axiety worse to the point it was depression, now I'm on Lexipro which really helps. I take ridalin for my ADD, low dose.

In all honesty.... No its not..... I first noticed that I could be normal when I was on Phen Phen. OMG what a wonderful drug it was for me at least from my ADD standpoint.

But, it went away and since then I was on Concerta, Stratera and none of those seemed to do much!

It's very common for depression to co-exist with AD/HD. If both are not addressed then yes stimulant can sometimes make the other co-existing condition like depression worse.

Thanks to all of you for replying.......... I have an appointment with the Doc on Friday and maybe I'll get it all worked out!

And forgive me in advance for my spelling......... When I looked over it, my eyes saw that it was wrong, but failed to inform my brain so that I could fix it!

I don't think anybody in this forum will ever comment on your spelling. This is a safe place where many of us make spelling and typing errors, myself included.
