Re: Adult ADD-what type of doc/therapy?

I would recommend seeing an endocrine Dr to get your thyroid levels and pituitary hormones checked. Gynecomastia in men can occur for several reasons, most of them hormonal, sometimes a drug side effect or from excess alcohol. The weight gain, blah feeling and memory, attention issues are common in hypothryoidism. The holistic clinic might not check out these specific issues, which I think should be done. If the medicine you took that made you feel good was an antidepressant, they are not addictive, and can be taken long term, if needed, so if everything else checks out, I would not be afraid to go back on it, perhaps on a little lower dose if you felt over-stimulated and too gregarious.
