Hagashe and others,

I have had a lot of similar problems with motivation, which I am sure in turn have affected my weight and general health. BUT I started having these problems pre-effexor, but they have been more noticeable now, because the depression has lifted. I am researching the possibility that I may have adult ADD, of which these motivation/cognition problems are a part of. I'm wondering if the depression was caused by the ADD, and now that the depression is pretty muych gone, it has unmasked the ADD. Just a thought. There is a good diagnostic at


> -Can't get energized (seriously risking my employment)
> - can't think/concentrate (my IQ is 165...and I am a internationally rated chess player; well I was before Effexor)
> - No "zest" for life...didn't think of killing myself anymore after starting Effexor...but found I had no desire to get up in the morning anymore.
