Hey all, I have been experiencing some anhedonia lately and just not experiencing feelings much at all in general. I feel like I don't want to talk to as many people or interact like I usually would. There's is't much pleasure in doing the things I usually do, and simple things like showering or going downstairs to get my mail are difficult to get the motivation to do it. I don't think I am depressed because I'm not feeling sad or unhappy, I am more just suffering from lack of ability to derive pleasure from things that once gave me pleasure and a general lack of emotions. I notice the anhedonia is especially noticeable when I am on my ADHD medications and it really sucks. Given the other medications I am on, it could easily be due to one of the other medications or a combination. Does anyone else experience lack of emotions and/or anhedonia when they are on their ADHD medications? What about when you are off them/you have 'come down' from the drug. I can feel my emotions, they just seem heavily suppressed. I can feel happy, sad, excited, but to a small degree compared to before, I guess the beginning of the year. You can see the rest of my medications in my signature if you want to comment on any of those in relation to this.
Hey everyone, I have a question. So me and my boyfriend both have ADD and he recently started taking meds again after a while. He is from a different city originally and previously never bothered to actually get a new doctor. He went to a local clinic and asked to be put back on his meds until he could get in to see a psych doc. Doctor said yes, prescribed him dexedrine for a month. He ran out and went back to the clinic to get enough to last him to his appointment later this month. This time though, he got a different doctor that mostly just treated him like a drug seeker and kept referring to dexedrine as speed. He wrote him a prescription for Wellbutrin, which he also takes, and for strattera. So I did a quick lookup online and saw that strattera is a norepiniephrine reuptake inhibitor. Okay, cool, I know why that would be useful for someone with ADHD.... But he already takes wellbutrin. Which is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. Sooooo.... Why does he need two? Obviously my next stop was crazy boards, and I searched the forums for wellbutrin and strattera together and the search came up nada. Nothing. Zilch. And if no one on Crazy Boards has brought up the two together it makes me wonder what's up. Is the search function just wonky, or is this something that doesn't often get prescribed together because they both do the same thing already?
