ADHD Adults

Need Help!!!
Keywords:


Hi Everyone,
Well I am an adult with multiple illnesses..BPD, Depression, Anxiety and ADD. I feel dead inside. I have no motivation to do anything. I plan everything I just don’t follow through with it. I am currently on Prozac and Adderall. I am miserable. I feel like my life is headed nowhere. I am in this dark hole and I can’t seem to get out. Please help

I’ve been there brother and I know, it’s painful and deeply upsetting. I have almost the same experience( ADHD, anxiety disorder, OCD and self Isolation). The only thing that got me back to old self and living my life again, was to realize that I had terrible anger Issue and low EI( emotional Intelligence). Basically I learn to control my emotion( Google search Emotional Intelligence and you’ll find technique).

This is solely my opinion man….. So what work for me might not work with you.

Hi Rajjj!

Amphetamines (Adderall) and Prozac and Paxil have a little-known bad drug interaction. You can read about it on Dr. Charles Parker’s website (http://www.corepsych.com/2006/11/adderall-prozac-and-paxil-problem-not-solution/) and print it off for your doctor. While you have a lot of diagnosis to juggle, this drug interaction could be making symptoms worse instead of better.
