> Anyone on this stuff for just plain old unipolar depression? If so, how is it working?

That would be me. I have been on 18 mg for 4 weeks now and it has done more for my depression than any other med I have tried (zoloft, effexor, lexapro). I noticed a significant improvement in my mood after only 2 days of treatment. The only s/e I am dealing with now is difficulty falling asleep. I will address this with my pdoc on thurs and see about possibly lowering to 10mg. When I dove into postpartum depression 9 months ago and all of the antidepressants failed, my doctor tried 10 mg of adderall. This lifted the depression but it had a tendency to aggravate my anxiety. Please keep me posted if you are taking it for depression (and the dose)....I will be curious to see how it works for others who are not diagnosed as ADD or ADHD.
