I really can't imagine a British pdoc prescribing stimulants for your symptoms Denise, in fact they're strictly contra-indicated in depression, but I'll follow your case with interest. Did you specifically mention Dexedrine and Ritalin, or just 'stimulants'?

Central nervous system stimulants include the amphetamines (notably dexamfetamine) and related drugs (e.g. methylphenidate). They have very few indications and in particular, should not be used to treat depression, obesity, senility, debility, or for relief of fatigue.
