Guest addnewguy Posted February 9, 2008 Share Posted February 9, 2008 Hello Everyone I went to a new pdoc today and unlike some of the others we talked about all the meds I have tried for anxiety and the obsessive type of ocd. The doctor has a "hunch" I have add and other doctors have told me that is a possible. The pdoc wanted to move me back to cymbalta which worked the best for my anxiety and ocd as well ass continue klonopin. This is the first doctor to suggest a stimulant and really say that unless I try the med there is no way to prove I have add even if I did all the testing they can do. I guess the end result with testing is that I likely would have some symptoms and they would want to try me on meds. He talked me into at least taking the prescription for "dextroamphetamine spansules". I don't know what these are exactly but he said they were safe and it wasn't ritalin. does anyone take these stimulants with drugs like cymbalta? I read that cymbalta works on the 2 chemicals in your brain but mostly serotonin and the doctor said the same thing. But then I read this new med works on neurepenephrine as well as the cymbalta so is that to much on that one chemical? Also if i am anxious and using the other meds is it common to take a stimulant anyway? He said I still need the cymbalta and klonopin because the anxiety and obsessing is a separate problem. Do people with add also have ocd and anxiety? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
