toledo ohio, Steve?

Hello all, I was just diagnosed with adds Over a year ago I quit smoking and quit coffee and started running. What a culture shock for me. So after a few months I started going crazy thinking I was going to die, I could not sleep, I was going nuts. I went to the doc and he gave me a prescription for Paxcal, I took one and totally freaked out. I don’t know if it was the first dose of paxcil or just me but I stopped and called the doc he gave me Welbutrin and advised me to see a shrink and I did. After a few months of welbutrin I feel much better and thought since I was seeing the shrink I should see about this life long feeling I had add, well I do and he gave me strattera. I went up a dose one month at a time now I am at 80mg a day plus 300 welbutrin. The strattera does not seem to work so he told me to try ritalin also 5mg 2 times a day. And that is were I am at now. I live in Ohio have 3 kids one VERY understanding wife and a dog. I am 35 and now just starting to see life.

P.S. Long time reader, first time writer.

Welcome, Steve!!

Thanks for the intro. It's nice to meet you!

I hope the addition of the Ritalin is working out for you!

I was going to recommend the Ritalin and Strattera forum, but I wouldn't be surprised if you've already made your way there (since you've been a long time reader).

I look forward to more posts from you!
