Can My Dr Rx "Uppers"

I have been on Effexor XR 300mgs a day for over a year. My Dr has recently put me on Topamax at night. I am have no energy at all. I cannot function. Do doctors EVER prescribe medicines that make you more energetic and alert like Ritalin? Just wondering.

Re: Can My Dr Rx "Uppers"

Generally not, if you don't have ADD.

Wellbutrin is an antidepressant that tends to be more energizing than the others. Perhaps you and your doctor might want to consider it.
