One last try to explain myself, and get help. mind racing/medications/etc.

This is my last attempt to try and explain, and get advice/help/anything on this issue I have.

I have posted a few threads about racing thoughts, and how they are getting to be a real problem for me, and I am sorry if any of this is repetitive but I am desperate. I will try to keep it short and sweet.

Medications I am on are:

Adderall 20mg Xr once a day.

Wellbutrin 100mg twice a day.

I have been diagnosed with inattentive A.D.D., and nothing else.

I was just put on Wellbutrin a week ago to try and help the racing thoughts and plan on continuing to take it until I find a new doctor who will tell me if it actually even helps racing thoughts since I don't want to be on an anti-depressant when I am not depressed.

Adderall is on and off with helping my mind racing, usually I take it around 9 a.m. and I would say my mind is on one channel on and off until about 2, and then it just unwinds and I feel like my head is just a bowl of mush being blended at high speed....I describe it as feeling 'sick in the head'.

I really only take Adderall for motivation, and to keep my thoughts from getting in the way of getting **** done. Everyone makes a big deal about focusing, but if I really have/want to I can focus without medication, it is just really hard for me.

I am starting to wonder if I even have A.d.d.... what if I am bi-polar? schizo? anything!? I just don't even know anymore, there is so many conditions with so many symptoms I am starting to wonder if I am misdiagnosed.

The only thing I have found to treat racing thoughts searching online, was Xanax and Klonopin.... I have never taken either. They seem like medications you take as needed.... in other words..not everyday. But I need something everyday. I can't sleep at night, I have to take something to put my mind at ease so it will let me just fall asleep.

I think I have said all I can say... maybe when you guys reply I can give you any information I might have left out, but I would really appreciate it if anyone who has experienced this mind racing and found a solution, could give me some advice. Or if you have anything to say at all I am all ears.

I am desperate at this point, it is mainly the sleep I am worried about, I can deal with feeling crappy and sick in the head during the day. I can't deal with laying down every night, with my mind going and going and going.

So sorry about the length. Thank you for reading
