Yes, I read the other response... Try, for example Luvox, and dextroamphetamine spansules, or tablets. Or Prozac and adderal. Watch out for sighns of mania, especially if adding an amphetamine and, for example, wellbutrin. but it is definitely proper and beneficial to augment antidepressent(s) with amph. Trial, and error. Ritalin is up-down. Dexedrine is up, slowly, down, slowly. At least for the majority. Note: Make sure that if you do augment, to have adequate dosages...otherwise your medicating on principle, which may give the illusory idea that it's not effective. Trial and error - this is the only thing that really works. Just don't expect to be frolicking. Remember, also, what goes up, comes down. Think it through - how will you sleep? Will you crash and go lower? But think positive - 5 hours of feeling normal and 3 hours of feeling like crap is better than feeling like crap all day.
