Can 60 Year Old Woman Start Adderall/other Stimul?

Posted by Helen Ball on December 19, 2019, at 18:25:25

I am a sixty year old woman who has had OCD and Social Anxiety since a teenager. After menopause I became quite depressed and haven't been able to 'kick' it since (past 8 years). Quite out of the blue I discovered that amphetamines really help my depression and my social anxiety. (I took Advil for cold and sinus daytime) and felt like my old self again. So my questions are: Does this make sense that something like Adderall or whatever may help with my depression/social anxiety? If I start taking a stimulant at my age, will it be harmful? (I've never heard of anyone my age starting a stimulant.) I know this forum highly recommends MAO Inhibitors for social anxiety, depression, etc. The thing is ... insomnia is my enemy. It is the trigger for my OCD and I've struggled with it for these past eight years. The stimulants (IR) seem to wear off quickly and not interfere with my sleep. Thanks I look forward to hearing your opinion.
