Morgan 73: As someone who suffers from treatment-resistant depression, I have been tried on every antidepressant known to man with little to no success, so trying not to put all my eggs (medications) in one basket. It is suffering as you called it. I was always to understand that generics are the same you are getting as the brand, but who knows if that is true. I can see where my doctor is coming from when he says that since I had a good response initially, it is now just a matter of finding the right dose. I don’t have any side effects from the Adderall that I can put my finger on. I think any time you take a medication, you are setting yourself up for a host of complications if not initially, somewhere down the road. We obviously live in a time when people are searching for that quick fix; I know I am! Problem is there probably is not such a thing on the market, generic or brand. I wish you the best in your continued search for healing and wholeness.
