this is my first post on this website, so i apologize if this is the wrong place for my inquiry. anyway, ill keep this short and sweet (for the most part).
i used to binge on amphetamines on a daily basis (Adderall), taking as much as 200mg in between 100mg doses all in one week. i wasnt paying enough attention to the toll it was having, but more towards the fun, and opportunies this magical pill provided me with. anyway, i quit amphetamines altogether after a slow decline from complete euphoria to dysphoria over the course of a few months.
this affect had me feeling extremely anti-social on the drug, when before i'd be able to talk to the goddamn president without a stutter or flinch. then it affected every other drug high possible; cannabis, mdma, cocaine, pain killers, etc. etc. and now, 3-4 years later, am in a constant state of depression and anxiety despite my regular intake of a popular SSRI (Paxil).
my question is, ive dont a lot of research about adderall and the effect it has on the brain (inb4 bad sources)
and found out that serotonin, as per usual with any type of drug use, is heavily affected by amphetamines, but also dopamine, a neurotransmitter when low or depleted over time can cause depression, lack of ambition, etc. all of which i'm now experiencing.
so, since my brain (3-4 years) is a bit too late to start taking supplements like 5-htp and potassium to help obtain my natural state of balance, would taking an SDRI (selective-DOPAMINE x x) along with an SSRI likely, if at all return some sort of chemical balance?
any light shed on this would be great, because a few months prior to my research i was set on a theory of simply 'losing my mind' and that there was no fix. give me some hope, guys.
