Adderall

Adderall

I was at my psychiatrist today, he wasn't very impressed wen I asked him will Adderall work, went on his computer & said they are for epilepsy. He's not heard of it. X

You not the only one @A MyDepressionTeam Member but usually when I suggest trying something my doctor is all for it depending I think if I went in now and asked to change he would say no because I am stable I have never heard of aderrall either

Well, I don't think it's for epilepsy unless that's an off label use. I take Adderall because I have trouble staying awake. I'm not sure I remember your condition or if it would help you. But, your right, your psychiatrist doesn't know it. How embarrassing for him. Can you switch Drs?

Awesome for you getting in front of the psych, and having suggestions and questions. Well done. There is no "right" fix I think. There are too many unknowns and I think we just need to keep trying new meds until we hit the right one. Again, congrads. What's the next step?
