Patient : I have not been diagnosed with add ,however as a college student i have taken adderall in attempts to accomplish all my task when things get too rough. maybe once or twice a semester.however, ive recently noticed that adderall does not have any affect on me anymore, i just feel normal. I used to feel the added concentration and dry mouth while on it, however ive tried different ones and i feel nothing. i dont know if this means i have add or what exactly is going on.I was diagnosed with depression two years ago, i started with prozac and i'm now on 50mg of zoloft. i dont know if antidepressants counteract adderalls effects. I have not talked about about this to my physician since i should not be taking adderral in the first place.I have never thought as having add, i always though that my lack of ability to concentrate for long periods of time or having to re-read something in order to understand the material (because i often find myself daydreaming) etc. was normal, but since different types of adderall have not had it normal effect on me i figured something is different. I would love any information, comments or advice.
