I was told my recent Doctors that I have ADHD,  Anxiety and a lesser form of Depression that I had in the past.  Depression they used to give me Haldol, Elavil, Valium, and Triavil.  Right now Celexa I've been on for the last 15 years but I think I've become so used to it, it doesn't work anymore

Welcome to AnxietyZone,

I urge you see see a qualified psychiatrist to get a proper diagnosis, and then, if necessary, effective medication for it. I do not think you have been well served by some of the meds prescribed in the past, especially the Haldol, and perhaps also by the ones that weren't and should have been. And I do mean a psychiatrist, not a PCP/GP, not a psychotherapist (unless you want therapy), not an intern, but a psychiatrist.
