Re: Ritalin or Dexadrine for Depression Jack Smith

I find the stimulant Adderall a very good antidepressant (although I take it primarily for ADD). I also take Klonopin, which relieves the depression that results from anxiety (I consider Klonopin my "primary" AD since my worst depression is anxiety-based). Adderall has an additional mood-brightening effect for me, and seems to work synergistically with the Klonopin. Both have been effective for well over a year, with no increases in dosage necessary.

Provigil is definitely worth a try too; I liked its effects (it just didn't help enough with ADD) and my pdoc said he's seen very good results in certain patients, although apparently it's hard to predict who will respond.
