MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.

Meds: There are two Med options neither of which are addictive: Wellbutrin, an antidepressant, and Strattera. Strattera might help with mood but is less likely to than Wellbutrin. Good luck! The diagnoses do NOT go hand in hand.
