hey med_empowered!
thanks so much for your help! sorry i wasn't able to lend more insight into yours.
is cymbalta considered an SSRI? i know only a little bit about it. i haven't looked more into it because i'm on both zoloft and prozac (because i haven't been able to increase the zoloft without becoming agitated) and i'm pretty satisfied on the antidepressant front. i've been on effexor xr up to 150mg a day, and though it helped with anxiety, i didn't feel much of an antidepressant effect.

when i read about adderall or amphetamines being used as diet drugs, i did read that it's a short-term solution because the appetite suppressing quality wears off. but as for the ADD focusing type qualities-- do those last indefinitely? i'd like to take med breaks, but it's so hard. what is the drug that your pdoc gives you to help stimulant withdrawal?

i don't have a huge appetite or anything and appetite suppression is a side effect my pdoc and others are trying to avoid. they considered giving me marinol, pot in a pill, to stimulate my appetite. still, i liked feeling the appetite effects of adderall because then i knew it was working. one can feel more awake and alert one day for other reasons than adderall working, but the appetite properties are pretty unique to stimulants.

thanks so much again for your advice!
