I was treated for anxiety & some depression (mainly anxiety) for years with limited success. Like you, I was high functioning, did well in school, but faced challenges as an adult in the professional world. I was finally diagnosed with ADD in my 30’s. ADD treatment (including stimulant meds) has made a HUGE improvement in my anxiety/depression symptoms – more than any previous treatment, including Effexor & years of therapy.
