Mjenn posted:
About two weeks ago i thought i had postpartum depression and went to my doctor and she had prescribed me to Zoloft, i hate it, and i stopped taking it. But a week before that, my friends brother stayed over at my house and he takes Aderall for ADD, my boyfriend suggested that i try one for the day because he used to take it when he was younger for ADD as well. So i took one.. And i loved it, i never been so focused and calm in my life, because i always feel really frantic, disorganized, forgetful, and confused, i had no care in the world, i was even better with my 10m old son. I googled ADD and the symptoms were right on the dot... So now that the doc thinks i have depression i don't want to go in there with a new possible diagnosis! and i also don't want to tell the doc that i took someone elses prescribed meds and persuade her to prescribe them to me! I am at a lose, please help!
