I would like to know if any of these drugs are contributing to my conditions
From this study (13 months ago):
I've previously been on both Adderall and Phentermine, at different times. I experienced very drastic and noticeable effectiveness. The phentermine helped with weight loss significantly and the Adderall greatly increased my energy levels, self-confidence, elevated mood, and higher concentration and brain activity. I was not on any other medications at the time, though I did need to take melatonin occasionally to help me sleep. Now, I had not been on Adderall or phentermine for about a year, but I was put on Adderall again several months ago. This was about a month after my brother died, so obviously I was experiencing (and still am) grief and depression. I was put on 40mg (twice as much as I used to be on) of Adderall in addition to seroquel XR and Lamictal. I felt like a slug all the time, I felt physically hungrier, and lethargic and apathetic. The adderall did nothing to help these symptoms. I am now on 60mg of Adderall and 37.5mg of Phentermine for weight loss and neither have shown any affectiveness, mentally or physically. My appetite is just as bad, and my brain isn't functioning fast at all. None of the affects of adderall I used to experiences, like increased energy levels, elevated mood, decreased appetite, increased brain activity, and increased self-confidence are present now, and I'm on more adderall than I was on before AND phentermine at the same time!! What's going on?? Both my ADD and weight gain are causing me to become increasingly self-conscious and depressed. Also, it doesn't help that my ridiculous amount of mood stabilizers make me apathetic and detached. I'm under 18 so I'm required to take the medications prescribed to me, but I don't know what to do or why the stimulants aren't effective anymore. HELP!!

My daughter is 20 years old and has been diagnosed with Bipolar, dysthimia, ptsd, narcolepsy and social anxiety. They are treating her with meds that may cause tremors even tho she already suffer from tremors and suicidal ideations. She is currently on buproprion(300mg) seroquel(150mg daily) and vistiral. I am very worried about her and want to know if anyone can tell me if this is a good combination

Please see the documentary by Doctor Gary Null called drugging our children and others. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance, or side effects, (they are all EFFECTS not to be minimised) it is psuedo-sales pitch to sell the drugs. No psychiatric diagnosis is evidenced by biochemistry tests, xrays or blood results. I saw my doctor and within 5 mins was prescribed Quitiapin and told to be on it indefinately 50+ years. See the DSM Diagnostic and Statistical Manual which shows how psychiatry invents symptoms to make money.

This web-page is funded by a drugs company that is why they want you to offer them your demographics, age gender etc. If there is one other documentary you should see it is entitled MAKING A KILLING-It exposes subliminal tricks and promotion in schools by multi-trillion drug companies. They give your child a psuedo questionnaire pretending to but is a marketing tool to pressure parents or put children in care if they do not have drugs.
