id vote thumbs down. do you think the doctor who prescribes the marplan might be willing to try a stimulant to boost the mood elevating effects? im not really sure why, but it seems from my very limited, casual skimming of the old literature that amphetamines (even desoxyn) were often used with MAOIs "back then," but Ritalin not so much. given that the literature on any stimulant+MAOI combination is scant, I doubt there's much out there on the milder stimulants prescribed specificially for weight loss.

the amphetamines, of course, were commonly used as diet pills until the 70s or so, when the dea started cracking down on uppers. evekeo, i think, is the newer amphetamine out, now, that is actually a recycled, old formula (Biphetamine, perhaps?), and as such comes in with an old school indication: weight loss. I doubt the official indications of any given stimulant would be an issue, unless...I dunno, it becomes one, somehow. lol. advice is obviously -no- , with the added suggestion that you consider talking to your current treatment person/people about the possibility of (I would assume low dose) stimulant augmentation, for mood and weight. that way, if its a-OK, you can get proper monitoring, medication that's been used in combination with the marplan, etc.

hope this helps.
