Ok, thanx for your advise. Im sorry that I may have explained my problem wrong. I forgot to add, Im a recovering opiate addict, never used cocaine, but i must say when my doctor diagnosed me with ADD , which my symtoms are basically lethargic type depression, Refractory depression, but I basically had no zest for life feeling, or moresoe "reward deficient syndrome" as more like my dopaminergic system , limbic, VTA, or prefrontal cortex regions, dealing with dopamine i can bet you was the majority of my problem.
What I mean exactly, I thought for years it was serotonin or GABA, constantly trying SSRIS, SNRIS and desipramine , etc, with no avail.
As soon as i started the ADDERALL with 1mg of klonopin split (90mg of adderall daily), My cravings went down 90 percent, my mood increased, motivation, the feeling of living , and enjoyment in doing even boringsom tasks, all came back.

Now, Iv taken 3 nice Holiday, one week vacation from ADDERALL. 5 days were basicaly bedridden and when i did get out of bed and tried to do things, I wanted to just run right back. Like my head was empty. Yes, it wasnt like I was going to die, like coming off opiates, but then again i loose 3-5 days of work, and my computer business and research.

But the funny thing about adderall, for me, is I can literally stay on my computer for 12 hrs!, yes, with some meal breaks and such, but never before did I spend more than 1-2 hrs online, and actually I was just chatting and stuff, now its more research.

I guess, taking some good supplements such as L-Tyrosine, Omegas, sodium bicarbonate, DXM, Magnesium,L-theanine helps block glutamate channels.

thank you again, please write back.
