I have had a daily tension headache in my head, neck and shoulders for 12 years. TRIED EVERYTHING, believe me! All the relaxation stuff, medications (started with tricylcics - many, many- always got hangover feeling) then onto SSRI's (just Prozac, gave me a bit of a stomach ache and didnít help and then Paxil, which made me EXTREMELY HYPER, my pupils were the size of my iris for almost three days from ONE pill, racing heart, nausea and gagging feeling, awful!), then Neurontin, felt like I was on Acid Trip or some strong drug from the 60s (I'm 38). I take depakote for migraines, tenormin for same, and Klonopin for anxiety and these headaches.

Hello, I am a college student and I recently gone to see a psychiatrist because I thought that maybe I have ADD. A couple of my friends have ADD and are prescribed to Ritalin and I talked to them about the problems that I have had my whole life and they told me that they have the same problems and they are the ones that convinced me to go to the doctor. I have been disappointed so far though. The doctor first prescribed me Zoloft and after a month the medicine made me feel horrible and it was not helping me at all. Now I am prescribed to Effexor and this still makes me feel horrible and it is not helping me. My friends told me to ask him about Ritalin but I have not yet -- I figured that a doctor should know what to give me. But when I go to see him he talks to me for about 10 minutes and then he prescribes me a new medicine. I want to know what I should do. I am having more problems in school, and I have been getting really bad grades. Should I see another doctor or should I talk to mine about it? Thanks.

I just took my 2 1/2 yr. old to a counseling center. He's always on the go, doesn't want to sleep or eat hardly. He is also very angry and throws himself to the floor when he doesn't get what he wants. He is also hitting and striking others. When he was born he hardly slept, then always cried; nothing I did then or now sooths him. It's not the terrible 2s. I'm not a panicking first time mom; this is my second child. I've had 2 daycares quit on me because he too much to handle. Please E.Mail me back -- I need info on Ritalin. I'm also getting a second opinion. The visit only lasted 1/2 an hour.
