Minor epiphany:

Antidepressants are explicitly bad for people with ADHD.

I was on a high dose (for me) of antidepressants when I was doing really bad 2008/2009.


Fuckin' brain chemistry.

Good insight! How are the drugs for ADHD going for you?

Pretty good, actually. The first week was boring, but the second week, I started feeling it.

Now in the third week, I'm feeling pretty good.

It's not helping with my sleep, but it's definitely helping with my mood.

I'm really hoping that you feel much better off the antidepressants.
I wish your docs had clued into this sooner. You're a super-trooper, hanging in through all that. *hugs*

I do feel better off the ADs. And starting to feel mood improvement on the ADD meds.

Why are antidepressants bad for the ADD folk?

Not sure. It maybe just be certain kinds, like the SSRIs I was on.

This was a vague memory combined with my Mom seeing a science/documentary program about them being bad for ADD folks a couple nights ago.

I'm looking for more info. Let me know if you find any.
