Anxiety, I presume? What dosage did you try? I'm finding that 75-100 mg / day (divided into 2 or 3 doses) is plenty for me.

> Straterra might be less agitating for me. What is your opinion?

Hard to say. It has caused or increased anxiety for some folks. I haven't tried it yet.

> choices are Buspar

Could be a good option. It's supposed to help with GAD, and can act as a very subtle AD. There have been some interesting posts about it on PsychoBabble. I'm thinking of trying it myself.

> or the natural substance Inositol

That's a nutrient present in many foods. While a dietary deficiency of inositol could conceivably cause depression, I doubt that inositol supplements would have a significant AD effect for people with adequate nutrition. I tried it long ago and didn't notice a thing.

> I need something for depression more than anxiety at this point, and have tried almost all of the current AD meds.

I assume you've tried SSRIs & TCAs. Have you tried Effexor or MAOIs? Have the problems with ADs been ineffectiveness, or intolerable side effects?
