In reply to stimulants for treatment-resistant depression?, posted by Roslynn on August 11, 2019, at 14:37:06

I am a huge fan of stimulants for treatment resistant depression, or any depression.

I believe they should be first line, not last line.

Ritalin is, by far, my favorite choice. It helps the most people with the most symptoms of any other med any doctor can prescribe.

Ritalin can work in hours to day, rather than weeks to months.

Modafinil is also a good choice, very often overlooked.

I tend to shy away from Adderall as it is just a prescription version of the street drug that usually doesn't end well in the long run.

Ritalin, Modafinil or any stimulant can work on their own. Sometimes they work better combined with a reuptake inhibitor like prozac, which is in my opinion still the best out there after all these years.
