I am an eighteen year old student. I have been depressed for about four and a half years. I was diagnosed with ADD about four years ago. I have taken all kinds of SSRIs (prozac, celexa) and just ended Wellbutrin. None have worked for my depression or concentration. I began taken Adderral XR 10mg along with Buspar 20mg at night. I can't really tell a difference, except that my appetite has decreased. Also, I seem to be getting headaches more frequently. Does anyone else get headaches while on Adderall? Would Stratera be a better option? I am at my wit's end. I must find relief.

how long have you been taking the adderall? if it hasn't been long then it is likely that your appetite will come back. for me, my appetite is suppressed a few hours after taking adderall,. but then it comes back (and strong) so it's not an issue for me anymore. but it was at first; i lost weight and was needing to gain as it was. i am ok now though, and not losing weight. currently am on 80mg/day (well that is what i am prescribed but sometimes i only take 40mg/day). i do get headaches sometimes. really bad ones in the morning when i wake up. ugh.

has it helped your add? if it hasn't, ask your doc to switch your meds. some people have been helped by strattera and not adderall, and for some it was the opposite. everyone is different :)

p.s. i was on lots of ssris too and they didn't help. right now i am on welbutrin with my adderall and i am finding it helps.
