  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have had depression (in some form) since I was a teen and this intensified as I struggled with acne. I fought these through my twenty's, along with the inability to complete tasks. As I aged, the incompleted tasks mounted and led to anxiety. Having anxiety, depression and the inability to complete tasks led to self-medication and a vicodin dependence. I'm not sure what came first; the inability to focus (which led to my being depressed) or being depressed (which led to incomplete tasks/focus, anxiety and eventually, when I couldn't handle it all, an opiod dependency). I am nearing forty years now and have found that when the ADD medication works (which isn't often and I can't track when it does or why) it REALLY WORKS and all of my other problems nearly disappear. However, due to the different medications I am currently taking I haven't been able to figure out which one, or combo, of drugs are decreasing the effectiveness of the generic adderall I am taking. The adderall slows down my thoughts, which suppresses the depression, anxiety and, eventually I believe, no longer needing the suboxone. WHAT medication(s) I am taking is interfering with the adderall???

    Your anxiety ( benzo's) will take away from the effectiveness, since I am practically on the same exact meds as you are on!!! I too, developed the depression at 19 and got addicted to opiates with precription drugs since I had several surgeries in a row.....but no matter how we get addicted, we r self medicating when we know we r healed physically, but still continue to request refills since it helps mentally and emotionally so well. However it only teaches us how to avoid problems in life, so I would stick with the adderall, and slowly tapper down from the subs. Keep the anxiety stuff only as needed so its not an addiction medication. Adderall and vyvanse both have a calming effect, yet they hit all the depressed receptors in the brain causing less pain from suboxone withdrawl. Atleast that's what I did, and I'm soooo much better, and I have a life with friends who respect me now....and I date people who are good enough for me rather than losers who make me feel better about myself!!!!
