Is your pain being treated?
That would certainly interact with mood.
would interact with depression I'm guessing.
I'm sorry that I can't really give you imput on the list of meds -- not seeing anything on the list that jumps out at me because not an expert.
helping for ADHD or for mood?
The best thing to do is to talk to your pdoc.
Ask your pdoc to be more aggressive -- talk about your goals and needs. Talk about your expectations.
And if he or she cannot work with you, then find another pdoc.
it helps to get the pdoc to talk to the other docs for you so that they can be on the same page (This only works sometimes because some docs don't communicate very well.)
Pushing hard to get on a better med plan can give you more opportunities than you have now. Whether or not you apply for disability, you can possibly (and quite probably) get your moods better regulated.
