So my DD has been on meds for anxiety for almost a year. They’ve significantly helped her anxiety, but she now has these depressive symptoms that she just can’t shake, even with antidepressant increases.
Just now at the psychiatrist he was mumbling to himself as he does, and flicking through her Conners scales and school reports, and suggested it could possibly be untreated ADHD (inattentive) causing a depressive syndrome. DD suddenly sprung to life, saying she’s always thought she’s had ADHD.
So now we’re looking at starting Concerta tomorrow.
So my question is, has anyone had this experience of ADHD causing depressive symptoms, and did ADHD meds help that?
Also any experience with concerta? Do you see a difference straight away?
