ahalo Posted October 24, 2005 Share Posted October 24, 2005 I've tried to chalk it up to being tired (which it still could be) but I'm starting to lose hope. When I was on Zoloft, not only was I always in a bad mood but it seemed to cancel out the effects of my ADHD medication (methylphenidate). In particular, I was more reactive and more impatient. I could still focus better, though. It seems like the same thing is happening with the Effexor as far as me being more reactive and more impatient. I'm not always in a bad mood but I have a "shorter fuse" again, which was something the methylphenidate had been helping with. I don't feel as anxious or overwrought with worry. I don't understand WHY I can't find something that can help BOTH the ADHD and Anxiety. I can't tolerate the constant worrying and the panic attacks, but I also do not like the person I am when my ADHD isn't in control. Is it possible I'm just tired? In the past the methylphenidate helped even when I was tired, but maybe I'm not getting a good night's sleep on top of not getting enough sleep. Or maybe I'm just trying to find a bright side that isn't there. Is it possible there is something else wrong with me that explains why methylphenidate controls my ADHD symptoms, but the Effexor (and Zoloft) causes them and/or cancels out the methylphenidate's effect?? Maybe this thread belongs in the cocktail, if so feel free to move it. I'm just kind of feeling down today about this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
