Discussions that mention prozac

ADD / ADHD board


hi, I'm nearly 22 and finally got diagnosed with ADHD.
I have been diagnosed before with eating disorders, anxiety, depression and other behavior problems as over exercising etc.
only here in amerika they diagnosed me with ADHD and put me on medication for it.
i am on straterra now, as well as on prozac (which i have been on for a while due to the depression). it has only been 10 days and i can see major changes in my eating behavior, my ability to concentrate, my ability to listen to others and communicate with others. it is amazing. since my dosage was upped, my anxiety is gone. i have never in my life felt this way.
i feel like crying due to relief; actually being able to sit down and read a book - it just has not been possible for as long as i can remember.
i just wanted to share that with you, there are people out there which have positive experiences with straterra.....
does anyone else feel this relieve when taking the medication ? that this mature stress burden is just taken off you, and suddently you do not feel so stupid and anxious all the time?
i would love to hear some adult experiences..... :)

I'm sorry nobody responded in so long, i've been kicked off these boards(due to my impulsitivity related to add I guess). I'm glad to read that you are feeling better. I've only been on Ritalin for a week now so I can't say i'm noticing a DRASTIC change yet. We'll see when i take my next test. :rolleyes: I will let you know if I'm doing better if your still on here. ;)
