The Strattera is a bust, and now we’re on to Wellbutrin, which is maybe the only anti-depressant I read about of which the ADD community speaks favorably. But because I have such pronounced reactions to drugs, I’m to start out taking it every other day.
It’s sort of interesting. The psychiatrist is trying to piece together the clues from my past drug reactions and see where the brain pothole is. She’s upset when I describe the Stattera as “our little experiment.”
“Oh no, you make it sound like you’re some kind of guinea pig!”
I gently point out to her that I am, in fact, a guinea pig, and that since these drug trials are a crap shoot, it is most certainly accurate to describe this process as an “experiment.” She looks upset.
“I’m a writer,” I remind her. “I like to use the right words.”
So here we go. Follow the yellow brick road…
