The more time goes on the more I'm beginning to notice worsening depression. I am doing psychotherapy once a week with a LMHC here. She is alright at helping me but I am still quite depressed with my life. I have ADHD and am on 70 mg of VyVanse but am having problems with depression on the side. VyVanse is pretty helpful but I take Zoloft 50 mg at bedtime and I'm having insomnia. I want to switch Zoloft as I've been on it for 8 months. I want to try something else but my doctor doesn't think that would be helpful. My sleep is really been poor and I wake up almost every night since taking Zoloft 50 mg at bedtime Versus the morning. I've tried a lot of depression medicine but VyVanse is the only one I like even though it's for ADHD and narcolepsy (don't have narcolepsy myself or bi gen eating) but my lifestyle habits are pretty good. I'm hoping I can look forward to things in life again. I'm 21 and am in college but my depression is getting bad and I don't know what to do.
