Okay, I have a question in the differences of Wellbutrin and Adderall. I know wellbutrin is an antidepressant and Adderall is for ADD. But don't both of them have very similar actions? Both raise dopamine and norepinephrine levels.
Currently I am on Prozac, and Wellbutrin. But the Wellbutrin is giving me weird "itchy" feeling that is downright annoying and I can't take it anymore. Wellbutrin makes me feel good and gives me more energy, so I need it, but can't stand the side effects. So I want to switch to something SIMILAR to it. Is Adderall similar enough?
My problem are:
----Depression/possible OCD (which is why im on prozac)
----Lack of Energy and fatigue. Hard to wake up in morning. I can sleep 12+ hours, which isn't good. (which wellbutrin helps with a little. But I think Adderall gives you energy, too)
----concentration problems. Pretty big ones. I don't know if it's ADD or not. I never went to the doctor to check. I kind of didn't want to. But now I'm finallly forcing myself to get help. But in school, I just dazed off 99% of the time, never could focus or pay attention, my mind was always wandering.. Now I want to go back to school, but it's nearly impossible for me to focus and get stuff done.
Although I DO NOT want to feel sedated at all. Im not sure if Adderall does that or not. I need more energy, badly. I tried eating healthy, that doesn't even help. I'm gona ask my doctor what he thinks, but I like be more informed beforehand otherwise the doctors will just throw random meds at you.
