Thank you for your reply! The thing is that the paranoid thoughts are not that bad in my opinion. He said that Ability would help with the paranoia and the depression. But I have read terrible stories on the internet about it. I know everyone reacts to medication in a different way but most people s...

He said that it helps ...

Thank you for your reply Verdandi.

I understand what you mean about the dosage. My doctor suggested raising it to 75/100 mg but I am also scared of ruining the good effects it has so far. I tried other antidepressants but they all ended up having a bad effect on me.

I know that it is not an ADHD med but I was wondering if there are people on Zoloft/Sertraline and what their experience is regarding sensitivity and tolerance when drinking for example. Zoloft has reduced my anxiety and my fear (even though they are not gone) but I seem to have developed some sort ...

I understand your pain.

When my cat died I could not even go to work. I think I have never cried so much in my life for anything or anyone.

Most docs nowadays just treat symptoms without bothering to do any diagnostic footwork. You've got repetitive thoughts? Here, try some Abilify. You've got tics? Try a benzodiazepam. Try this, try that, and let's see what's stick. Just don't ask what's wrong, because we won't tell you. I so totally ...

Hello everyone I have been reading for months with a lot of interest the posts in this forum. After years of not really knowing what was really going on with me I decided to go through all the procedure to have an official diagnosis of what I suspect to be a mix of AS and ADD.
