: : Has anyone had this experience: I was taking adderall (the only stimulant I have tried so far) and I was not noticing anything. My doctor 2 weeks ago put me on Celexa. It is an anti-depressant. I have actually noticed it has been helping my depression as well as my add. I thought stimulants were the only thing to work. Anyone had a similiar experience. Noone ever replies to my messages, so someone please reply for once.
: Many anti- depressant drugs or anti-psychotic drugs are used for lots of different purposes. My husband is using Nortiptyline to totally eliminate daily migraine headaches and that medication is an anti-depressant and is one that has been around forever. It is great that they have found a medication that is working for you so well. Be glad that something worked so easily for you with out a lot trials with other drugs.
: I have to agree. If you have found something that works--go with it. We're still looking Adderall did not work well for our daughter. Methylphenidate (Ritalin) seemed to do a better job, but we are tired of the side affects (slow growth, increased lieing and meanness). She was also on Zoloft in addition to the above. The doctors are trying to help and we're going to a new one next week. By that time, we'll know if we need to try a new drug or try to stay drug-free.
