add poss w/no energy

I have been diagnosed with clinical depression for 20 yrs. Tried all kinds of med but never felt like i thought i should. Lately i've been reading up on add/adhd and have all the symptoms except i never have any energy and could stay  in bed all day. My body is in slow mode but my brain is running wide open. cant concentrate, keep up with anything , remember anything. now on wellbutrin 300mg/day and 40 prozac.

   The problem is now you are on meds that will slow you down.  Think back to your days in school and then go to this link - http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD?page=1#sec_3761.
   and see how familiar the symptoms sound.  At your age - at that time in elementary/high school -  females were really being overlooked (especially if they had ADD).  Studies have shown a very high link to depression and ADHD/ADD so its worth checking out.
   It might be worth your time to find a psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD/ADD and make an appointment - it can't hurt!
