AbbyNormal Posted May 29, 2006 Share Posted May 29, 2006 Hey, I have been on Adderall for years for ADD w/o H (along with other stuff for depression and anxiety). Along the way I have developed a chronic sniffing problem. I've always felt it was a congestion problem and not a tic, because I feel mucus in my sinuses that is annoying and it 'compels' me to sniff to move it to my throat so I can swallow it (sorry if that's gross). It's so bad sometimes that I sniff and sniff until I'm dizzy (and my poor husband has to listen to it all day and try to stay compassionate about it -- not easy). I went to an earnosethroat doc and he said the problem was a deviated septum that he pointed out on my CT scan. He also tested me for allergies and said that it probably wasn't that. He wants to 'fix' my nose. Although I think that I sniff because I feel congested, I also have noticed that I sniff more, (or start to sniff ), when I am feeling anxious, and that makes me wonder. . . .Does this sound like a stimulant or anxiety induced tic to anyone? Or am I just Lisa Lupner? Thanks for any help or insight. --Abby BTW -- I'm skipping the Adderall and taking Klonopin today to see if that helps, but so far, *sniff sniff sniff* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
