Hi Rose, I can really relate to your post, as I too have been suffering from major depression most of my adult life. I think I also have SAD as well but didn’t tolerate the Wellbutrin that doctor prescribed for this, plus didn’t seem to help. Anyway…about the Adderral, you don’t need a psychiatrist to order this ( in USA) your primary care doctor can order as well. Did your psychiatrist send a note to your PCP ? I would wonder why he is ordering so many patients Adderral that he has met his limit?
I am taking Adderral in addition to Cymbalta and some days it helps and some times I go back to bed and sleep after taking it. But, I must say when I first started taking it it worked wonderfully. We were on vacation and I was able to enjoy it. I also have Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain. The fatigue with the Fibromyalgia is awful.
I have also read that Adderal needs to keep getting increased in dosage, as we begin to tolerate it? Best of luck to you.
