How do you know...

I have a 21 year old daughter who is a very bright and intelligent girl. She was diagnosed as ADD in high school but doesn't like the effects medication has on her. Lately, one doctor has mentioned that perhaps she has been misdiagnosed and has depression, rather than ADD. We have tried ADD medication, counseling, etc and nothing has seemed to help. She graduated from high school with honors and is struggling big time with school. She is sick a lot with allergies and/or stomach issues. Could it be depressions? How ccan we find out without it costing a fortune? We can't afford much more. She is planning on getting married in November. I just hate for her to start this new phase of her life if there is something more that we, as parents, could have done to help.
