Kristine, YES--dexedrine is absolutely a legitimate adjunct to other antidepressants. I have used it with an MAOI (Parnate) for over two years. It doesn't have the "illegal" effects that people associate with it--I didn't lose weight or feel "high;" but it boosts the Parnate just enough to make it effective and also helps with the fatigue I feel on almost any antidepressant. I just read an article last night on the web about AD protocol and it suggested that if an AD needed a little boost to first try Lithium (which I will never take again) and then Dexedrine. Only drawback to dexedrine is that you need a new, written prescription every time it is filled--your Dr. can't mark "refills" or call in the prescription.
