I wanted to thank everyone for their advice/support a while back. Chances are you don't remember my post, but I was having difficulties, wondering if I could have ADD and trying to figure out what to do. I thought I would update and let you all know I was tested by a neuropsychologist last week. Her test results were inconclusive; my attention scores fell in the normal range, but this was inconsistant with my other scores (IQ, memory) which all fell well above the normal range. Depression and anxiety were brought up as being issues, possible causes of attention problems. After interviewing me and getting some of my history, she decided I might as well try ADD medication and behavioral therapy and see if it helps. I don't know yet what medication my psychiatrist will want to try; I plan to ask him about taking something for the depression/anxiety as well, if possible. If anyone here takes medications for ADD and depression or anxiety feel free to reply and let me know what and how it's worked for you, or what you've tried in the past that hasn't worked. I've had positive experiences with Wellbutrin in the past, no other antidepressants/mood stabilizers have really been helpful. I had a particularly bad reaction to Effexor.
