What is making me feel this way. The bipolar or schizo affective disorder? The social anxiety or adhd? Or the borderline personality? Or is it all the meds i take? I take a lot of psych meds not to mention the meds i take for my physical ailments.
I have taken Riralin before, but for ADHD and it works wonders for me.I have now been diagnosed with depression, if I took Ritalin now would it help for the depression, have been on a few other depression meds that have had violent side effects on me and I have gone back to 5 HTP again but I am not sure if this is sufficient.

I feel like a lot of the symptoms that I was accrediting to depression, were side effects. Extreme fatigue, grogginess, difficulty focusing. If I went to a depressive mind set I would be consumed by suicidal thoughts. Another thing... I have a severe neck injury, I have been… read more
