I have been on Wellbutrin, Prozac and Lamictal for several years. My anxiety and attention issues have gotten very bad. My doctor is putting me on ritalin and trileptal and removing me from Wellbutrin and Lamictal. I am having a very hard time with the switch effects. How long should I expect them to last?
Do you have actual adult ADD diagnosed by a psychiatrist? the Trileptal canhelp the anxiety though why is he prescribing that for purely anxiety when better options exist? but on the other hand anxiety is often irritation from untreated ADD so Ritalin can help too. Do you have depression or bipolar disorder? I've seen a buddy go from Depakote to Trileptal and it worked out ok but he is bipolar and takes it along with Risperidone. A good combo for comorbid ADD and anxiety is Remeron plus Adderall so maybe Ritalin will work too. Need more info though
