I have been diagnosed with BPD and depression. My Dr. prescribed me Adderall and Seroquel. Any insights on to this combination of meds?

Adderall is given to kids and adults who have ADD. It is also given to adults when they have a lot of 'no-energy' problems.

Seroquel is an antidepressant.

I've used Adderall before but didn't get much benefit out of it.

Trust your doctor and take the meds faithfully. If you are not getting any benefit after a few months, be sure to return to your doctor. DO NOT stop taking your meds without your doctor's supervision. Some meds have wicked side effects if you suddenly stop taking them.

All the best,
Mary

Seroquel is a atypical antipsychotic not a anti-depressant
