adderall causing depression

Posted by wishingstar on August 27, 2008, at 21:23:39

Can anyone tell me anything about adderall causing depression? I've seen the connection made many times but dont really understand much about it. Is this typically a withdrawal effect that occurs after quitting/lowering the dose? Or is this an effect that people sometimes notice while taking it?

I've dealt with recurrent treatment resistant depression for many years. I currently take adderall once per day, usually around 9am. I'm not currently on any other medications, although I've done a million trials in the past. I've been on the adderall apx 4 months now and in the last 1-2 months, my depression seems to be kicking back in with a vengeance. I havent changed the dosage (except to increase it once apx 2mos ago). Since my depression tends to be recurrent, it could easily be just a natural cycle happening for me npw, but if it's related to anything else in my life, I want to figure that out.
