I've had depression since I can remember as well as inattentive ADD. I was diagnosed at 17. I am 44 now. I used to have severe anxiety (treated with xanax)... however a life changing experience got me off xanax. Been prescribed adderall along with several different anti depressants. I feel no anxiety with the adderall. Went 8-9 months without anything... Depression never had left. So, my Doctor and I started with a clean slate. The addreall was prescribed along with cymbalta. No luck with depression but able to focus and study. There have been a couple more anti depressants but cant really recall what they were! Anyway my question is I have not experienced any anxiety with adderall; however the second week into the effexor I had headaches... those went away..In the fourth week taking effexor my stomach is allll nerves!! Continuously obsessing over bad thoughts. Everything is just awful. Do I just get through the bad and tolerate this for now in hopes this side effect will clear up and go away? Is it true that sometimes it gets worse before it gets better on new anti depressants?
