Surely elevated mood can help too, because it makes you more positive to things and are more willing to try them (eg. a social situation you would normally avoid).

Hi thanks for responding 'stimulant fiend'. Seeing as you are a fiend, would you mind telling me a little more about your journey and how stimulants have helped you? What are you currently taking? Has it helped with depression, social anxiety? Are you concerned about potential addiction/dependence? Another question (if you don't mind). Why do you sign yourself undopamergenic? I am interested in the connection of dopamine in my 'issues'. I have a son with schizophrenia (doing well) which they theorize (I believe) is caused by too much dopamine?? I'm wondering if perhaps there is a genetic/biological issue with dopamine (too much/too little (more probable) which is the main culprit causing my depression, social anxiety and OCD. I have always taken SSRI's which do not seem to working any longer. Have tried SNRI's with a little better effect but not much. Anyway, sorry I'm rambling. I'll give you the chance to answer my numerous questions. Thanks again.

P.S. Tried Wellbutrin which TOTALLY wired me. Will never try again. Only class of AD's not tried is MAOI's.
