Oh, I thought your responses were pretty modest/cautious, although sure, some of your options (eg. Ritalin and Parnate) can be addictive to some people. Indeed, even quetiapine has been linked to drug-seeking behaviour.

I'm pretty sure it's the latter. Even using drugs recreationally does not necessarily imply addiction.

I've been through that phase. I took stimulants to ward off suicidal ideation. Now, I'm in a better condition, and I rarely even long for stimulants most of the time.
