> I experienced an intense depression yesterday evening after forgetting to take my afternoon dosage of dexedrine. I've had the dexedrine rebound effects of my mind being out of control and fast, but last night felt like my brain caved in on itself.

James here....

If I am depressed, taking Dex makes it worse. Maybe not worse, but when I am depressed I can always hold onto the relization that these thoughts are not realistic, but if I take Dex my mind starts really going with a whole new level of fears, what if, ect. Gets too much to overcome. Same thing happens if I take Dex and am already tired or stressed, makes for a bad day. If I am rested Dex does not rag me out but if i am not it makes me more ragged out.

As long as I am not depressed (like 360 days of the year, less the breakthru depressions every 5 yrs or so) Dex adds to my AD and I am a happy camper on it.
