: wow really need to finish this paper but if i don't get this off my mind it will don cusume me.
: Quick story
: I was diagnosed with adhd as a child. went to see a psy like 2-3 days (i'm in college now)
: She put me on zoloft..said i might have a mild case of depression, anix, and obessive comp dissorder.
: I think she might have missed diagnose me. She did say that the things to help this are also used for add or adhd
: Is there just a place i can go to get retested from my childhood days...should i take this med if i don't think it's going to work?
: Should i just go with it?
: I'm really wondering if i might have alittle of both. The adhd cause my constent non-focus, and rapid rapid though process..and mild depression might cause it to sometime be negetive.
: Is it common for ADD or ADHD people to have depression. (I really find it hard for 1000 thought a sec not to go sour once in awhile.)
: (I'm sure there are going to be mad typo's in this...but i think "u" might understand :)
: Sorry so long so many question so little time...please reply or mail if you have info
Talk to your medical doctor and ask them for a referral to the nearest clinic that does ADD/ADHD testing. They can test you properly as well as evaluate your need for zoloft. Good Luck
