I have lupus, which is pretty much under control. However, I do also have ADHD and my menstrual cycle has been really rocky the last 2 1/2 years. I think I’m very depressed and try to antidepressant but things with all of my health issues my situation is a little unique. I was wondering if anybody else has tried antidepressants and if so, which ones. Thank you.

      I have tried several over the years. Prozac and Lithium together (seemed ok at first, but caused unwanted side effects), Celexa (had allergic reactions), and Zoloft (it heightened my anxiety), and Bupropian (I became a rageaholic). I gave up for a while because I got discouraged. I tried a few others that I don't remember the names of, nor how I reacted to them. Then new ones became available. I tried Viibryd. That worked for me. It was the only one that untangled the ball of string in my head (I could think more clearly and stayed more focused). It slowed my racing thoughts, evened out my moods and helped me manage my feelings. I have heard of people that had good results with Pristique. One even told me "it made me happy." Keep in mind, everyone reacts differently to meds. Have faith that you will find what works for you. I hope this helped.
