    Hi David,
    I am currently on Pristiq for my depression. It is an SNRI so it works on both serotonin and norepinephrine. It has worked well for me as an antidepressant with no side effects like hyperactivity or impulsivity.

    Hi Sandy,
    I have heard several comments from people saying that they saw immediate results regardless of the stimulant they used (once they found the right medication and dosage). It could be that the dosage is wrong or (like me) Adderall just doesn’t work. Not every medication works for every person, and in 10% none will work at all. I hope…[Read more]
