> Hi...
> I have had success with Effexor for ADD. But you have to raise the dosage above 225 mg. This because the noradrenergic effect kick in on this dosage. Also the dopamin effect will start usually whith 300 mg or more. Those two transmittor substans, NE + DA is importend for ADD and the attention + focus.

Thanks for the info. It is really helpful. I am still kinda absorbing all the advice and info as I was just told about the ADD. Sure could have used the diagnosis alot earlier, anytime before my 28th birthday and 1st child would have been appreciated. Then again, things didn't really fall apart until then. I am trying to figure out exactly what my symptoms are (sounds stupid) other than being surrounded by complete chaos and what I think I may need medication for.

Thanks again.

Take Care.
