I'll try to make this brief and short. I don't know what's wrong with me anymore. My current Psychiatrist doesn't know what's wrong with me, so, I'll begin seeing a different Psychiatrist on Monday. And I'm so uncomfortable and unhappy that it's going to be very difficult to wait for Monday. My brain does not react to any type of antidepressant. Schizophrenia medications make me so tired and hungry that at one point I gained over 70 pounds in 4 months and I was asleep 20 out of 24 hours of the day, everyday. The facts and symptoms that I experience brings us to the conclusion that I have ADHD and I've gone undiagnosed. But the only medication to treat ADHD, which helped me a lot and balanced my mood without any medical or sleeping problems, has been Adderall (adderrall) at a very high dose. The last dosage I was on was 60mg per day, twice a day, and it wore off before my day was over (around 7 and my day doesn't end 'til midnight because of the job I HAD). Stopped taking the adderall (adderrall) because they would refuse to subscribe it, I went back to the same person I was before, out of control, and ended up losing my job, haven't been able to keep a job since then, got into two car accidents, lost all my friends, ect. My life has been destroyed. I don't know what to do.
So have you been diagnosed with Schizophrenia? That's a tough disorder to treat, really tough. Have you been on any anti-psychotics? not saying that you are or were, but they can tone down a lot of anxiety and manic behaviour. I'm on it for bipolar to deal with my high anxiety and at times hypomanic phases(fairly close to ADHD thinking and acting) I get so hyper, I was bouncing off walls practically and unable to concentrate.. It takes it down to a dull roar. I'm also ADHD, and really am trying not to take another med, so we've been adjusting my Seroquel to see if will be more affective.
I hope things go well with your new pdoc on Monday, it may take a couple of visits to get a game plan in order in regards to your meds. You sound very lucid, so obviously you're doing something right.
