There is nothing wrong with relying on a medication, unless its side-effects aren't worse than the affliction it treats. I am a happier, healthier, more productive person thanks to the antidepressants I have been taking for the past decade. My weight went up and I have become rather loquacious, but that's preferable to being a basketcase. I am also going to be taking meds for my thyroid for the rest of my life. So be it. The drugs are doing what my body fails to do on its own. Hopefully you can control your allergy symptoms with the neti pot (shudder) and other means that do not interact with your ADHD meds. Good luck!


Thank you for that, Jen. It's hard to get past the stigma to which I've subscribed and my inability to accept that this is a condition and not a fault that I can overcome with will power and behavior modification. Somehow it's not clicking for me; there are books on the subject that I'm sure will help with this recalibration if I could only finish reading them.
