I'm not getting that good of results from Wellbutrin (prescribed for ADD), and to be honest, I'm not getting bad results either. Looking around, I'm don't see any first-hand ADD related Wellbutrin experiences (positive or negative), and I'm wondering if it's really all it's cracked up to be. Should I go back and try and get Adderall instead (which seems to have good responses here)?

A while back I went to my General Practitioner and told her that I had been diagnosed with ADD at an earlier age but my parents had chosen to not do anything about it, and now I felt like I wanted to try some sort of medication to see if it'd have a positive effect or not. She brought me a little paper bag full of Wellbutrin SR (time-release), and I listened to what she told me about it, nodded, and went home to try some of her wonderpill. Three weeks later, "eh". Aside from a bit of a perceived mental block the first couple days, nothing seems to have changed.
Maybe I didn't give it enough time? Maybe I'm just bad at noticing side effects? I would go to crazymeds.org, but they've apparently shut down.
