Went for ADHD diagnosis - Psychatrist gave me Depression medicine - please help!


After facing a lot of anxiety and lack of focus and concentration, I was sure that I have ADHD. I went to a psychiatrist and after a series of questions they concluded that I have depression.

I am not satisfied with the diagnosis because there is nothing like depression going on in my mind.

But, I know there are some past events related to my childhood that might have caused depression and there is underlying depression going on.

Anyways, the doctor prescribed me Vortioxetine 10mg daily. I dont want to take this medicine and when I told the doctor that if Ill start taking it I might have to take it forever. To which he said that your routine of working night shifts is a surety that you have to take the medicine forever because your depression will not be cured with this routine.

I dont understand. I am not getting the depression thing at first place..

One more thing that I was diagnosed with depression before but I didnt take any medicine at that time and things got better.

But, this time I am completly alright.

All I want is to get the focus and concentration back. And also a natural or homeopathic treatment of depression.

Please help me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I need comprehensive information about both your mental and physical state. Can you provide a detailed account of what is currently happening to you?

I am 35, female, single.

So, after consulting with the psychiatrist, I started taking the medicine and it cleared my mind a bit. I was very scared for my cognition and mental health that I had to take the medicine. But, after a week I stopped it again. Deep inside I know I am not depressed. The only thing from my past that still disturbs me or makes me cry if I think about it was the fact that I went through sexual abuse as a child from the age of 7 till 12. But, through different techniques like inner child healing, meditation, etc. I am trying to overcome or heal the wounds. I know its going to take a long time and thats why I dont think about it.

Other than that, I am doing fine.

Currently, the problem that I have is that I am not able to focus on my work. I am a freelancer and I have a lot of responsibilities. I have a lot of abilities as well, but I can not use my full potential.

If I do mental work, I feel sleepy after a little while. Or my head feels heavy and I start watching youtube shorts or tiktok. I hate wasting my time on these and I dont enjoy watching these things. But, I keep on scrolling and feeling guilty.

I have tinnitus ( a sharp sound in my ears - like a long beep that goes on and on)
I previously thought that its normal, but now I realise that its not and its too prominent.

I tend to sleep a lot. I want to seek refuge from my work in sleeping. One of my client is very lenient and is not very strict so my finances are being taken care of. But, this thing is not going to last long as I am not performing well and I know that.

I know that I can do a lot. I have ideas, a very good mind, and ability to perform exceptionally well. But, I cant.

I came across tiktok videos where people mentioned facts about adhd and I was quite sure that thats what I am going through.

Besides that, I have anxiety and I cant take on multiple responsibilities or jobs. If I do, Ill get anxious and leave everything and sleep.

I learned driving but when it comes to taking my car out and drive on my own, I cant drive. I get anxious and the simple thing of switching between clutch and brake seems very difficult. I visualize myself stuck in a situation where Ill have to reverse my car, and there will be cars coming from behind and theyll beep and Ill be there stuck forever.

I feel like stuck despite having a lot of potential.

Also, I am not against the doctors or their conclusion that I have depression. May be they are right. The only problem is that I dont want to take the allopathic medicines for depression and become an addict.

Mention any thing else pertaining to you and your problem which you feel has not been asked and is persistent and unusual, Do mention strange feeling if any.

I think Ive mentioned everything.

The pattern is like -
I have to earn money.
I get good jobs.
I start working and then panicking - imposter syndrome hits.
I wish to quit the jobs.
I eventually quit because I cant handle the anxiety.
It continues.

My problem is that I want to be financially stable. But, when I get that stability, I think about growth, then I start to worry.

Besides the jobs, I have to start working on my blog/website. I have all the ideas in my mind and a small team of girls that can help me with writing and research. All I have to do is to put everything in place. But, I simply avoid.

I start scrolling on my phone or open youtube on my laptop.
If I dont watch anything, I stare at screen.

Thats all..

You can ask me specific questions if you have any.

Ideally, once you notice any change, its best to report back immediately or provide weekly feedback.
