verigoz is on a distinguished road
Anafranil or Venlafaxine?


I've ADHD and I have tried almost every antidepressant in the book (I live in Italy and psychostimulants are not an option... Anyway, I tried Ritalin in the past but it didn't work for me)

I have had good results with Anafranil 75 mg (and some result with Anafranil 50 mg) and little or no results with any other med. But I withdrew it because I was tired of being tired all the time (drowsiness, fatigue and so on).

Anyway, since Anafranil worked well for me I'm thinking about trying Effexor which is quite similar. What do you think about it? (yes, I have read about discontinuation problems, and I had similar issues with Paxil).
