    I replaced my effexor with cymbalta about six years ago. It’s really good for depression but not the best for making activities enjoyable. I did prefer effexor to be honest as far as mood goes. Just couldn’t handle the male specific side effects. When you say numb what do you mean or do you mean?

    It sounds like you do have what’s called dysphoria like I do. You usually need a med to handle your depression and one to handle dysphoria. You should talk to your Doctor about it. Effexor, Pristiq and Wellbutrin are all really good at treating that and so is marijuana. If your Doctor wants you to quit marijuana first then I recommend just telling them you did so you can get meds that will actually help you. Read about Dysphoria too obviously and check and see if all the symptoms match up. The two go hand and hand with depression but that’s not always the case. Also talk to them about a prescription to cannabis too although that can be a hard sell depending on your Doctor. Let me know how things go.

    I can’t imagine it’s not illegal. Also who picks a career educating children and doesn’t expect to have to deal with ADHD?

    Hey there,

    I’m new here but I used marijuana daily for about 15 years and your story is similar to mine. Are you sure it’s just the ADD that the marijuana is helping or could it be a specific type of depression? Do you find that your mood and the ability to enjoy activities starts out okay when you wake up and then deteriorates throughout the day and you find that you need marijuana to be able to enjoy things in addition to calming your mind down? Let me know and if your answer is yes to all those questions I can probably help you.
