I have previously had a horrible panic disorder and then when the panic attacks stopped it became general anxiety. Now, that I've been on so many anti-anxiety, anti-depressants and benzo's, I recently stopped taking my anti-depressants because it is a new one and not generic and I can't afford it and I wanted to see how I would be without it... well with coming off of that and being on benzos and other anti-anxiety meds - I have absolutely NO energy whatsoever. I can't wake up in the mornings, I can't even sleep at night because I sleep all day. It is ruining my life. I tried adderall and have taken it a few times this month to see the effects and it has been a God send to me. Just a low dose makes me incredibly awake, productive, I've lost weight and have motivation to actually workout and I'm getting my life back in a month. I don't know how to talk to my doctor about this, because I know it wasn't right for me to take a drug that was not prescribed to me. Illegal in fact. I don't think any doctor would have tried it for me before though, so I wonder what I should do. Should I bring this revelation up to my doctor. I know it is typically for patients with ADHD and have had ADHD in the past, but I've never had ADHD. I've always had either depression or anxiety but I really think it would help me right now, at least for the short term. I also know that ADHD is just the label use, there are other things that can help. Or should I just try a different anti-depressant? PLEASE HELP!
