> Alot of the doc's prescribe dexedrine for depression in 1960's and also dexamyl (dextroamphetmaine/amobarbital-barbiturate) to counteract the stimulant anxiety. Elvis Presly I have read imunsly abused this med in his years.

> Stimulants work on dopamine, releaseing them and making you more alert and active, postive with life, some people lack that "stimulation" which causes depression, even other antidepressants such Prozac SSRI's because they dont give that stimulantion. I have noticed this since i used to use adderall, dexedrine for ADD and depression and it did help. But i am off it now, and it is hell, i just have to danm force myself. My mother took me off it. She extremely makes me angry.

The antidepressants seem useless sometimes, unless potent antidepressants like parnate which are more activating but i dont know produce that "stimulation" that stimulants do.
