> Absolutely! The Adderall is certainly my mainstay antidepressant -- the Prozac is just there for backup, and I don't really know whether it's doing much for me. I originally began taking it only as a means to withdraw from Ultram (for which it worked flawlessly) and just never dropped it. The way I see it, everything is going great now -- no need to rock the boat.

In all fairness, I do take 60mg Delsym (dextromethorphan polystirex) twice daily, which is quite likely preventing tolerance. My pdoc endorses the use of DXM to all his stimulant-treated patients now, ever since I brought it to his attention months ago. He's seeing many patients finally stabilized on doses of amphetamines whereas they used to escalate monthly or even weekly. It doesn't seem to be working as well for his patients taking methylphenidate.

Dextromethorphan helps prevent tolerance to stimulants?? I've never heard of this. Very interesting! Also - I've recently read about the use of Ultram as an antidepressant for TRD that apparently works very fast - is this true?? Did your doc present this option to you or did you supply yoru doc with research info in order to try Ultram? Can you point me to anymore info??

Thanks in advance!
Jerry
