There are many threads on this in various forms, but I want to know specifically if any of you can weigh in on experiences you may have had or are currently having regarding the usage of Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine, and other stimulants alone or in combination with other meds for the treatment of resistant depression. Sorry for the long sentence..

I am currently trying stims in combination with Prozac for a treatment resistant depression that has been with me since I can remember. I feel a little improved on a tiny dose of Adderall with the Prozac.

Problem is.. I used to abuse a lot of Cocaine about 5 years ago, and I am scared something bad will happen. I will not abuse the meds in any way, but I just remember the pain my cocaine problem caused up and down and up and down. My doc seems to think I was actually on to something by going after the cocaine. He thinks a trial of longer acting stims is warranted..

I am trusting him, but hope to get some feedback from the people who are actually in the trenches day in and day out and don't just theorize about, but actually experience the problem of mental illness.

All comments and opinions welcome.
