Mike,
Thanks for your reply! I am doing exactly what you have done, I feel great and I have the energy to think about doing the things that I don't really care to do, but like you, I will find something I enjoy doing in order to keep from doing what I know I should be doing! At work, I surf the net way too much...putting off my work, I just can't make myself do my work unless I know my boss is watching..same thing at home (i finally payed my bills that were late...during work time)!! It definitly does not give me motivation.
I am getting along very well with my husband, he was getting a bit irritated with my personality, which was due to changing meds every month...but I have evened out now and as he says "am back to the woman he married" (We've been married 7 months)
I have a months supply of Wellbutrin SR from 2 years ago that I started taking yesterday (Wednesday) with my concerta, I am going to see if that helps to motivate me some!
FYI: When I was taking Strattera, i was very irritable! I seemed to not want to get along with anyone, the smallest things would bug me and I always felt very defensive. I had to have an excuse for everything I did and if my husband would so much as make a comment to me about doing something, I snapped back with my excuse. He kept telling me I didn't have to explain to him why I was doing what I was doing (we're talking making coffee, going to the store, what I was watching on tv, what I was eating for supper, etc)...but I was on the defense. Don't know if this is what you are experiencing with your wife or not, but I thought I would share!
