> I have a question. I was just recently taken off of prozac for depression because of muscle pain and fatigue as well as weight gain. I am on wellbutrin and my doctor and Ihave discussed adding a stimulant. I've been researching this site for info on the stims when I came across adderall. I didn't know what it was so I started looking for information on it. I ended up on an ADD site and just about fell over when I read the description of peopl with adult ADD. It sounded just like me. I'm curious what the relationship that depression and ADD have. Do they tend to occur together? Is depression caused by the ADD? I'm going to talk to my doctor about it on our next visit.
I don't know if it will help you, but I have bipolar and ADHD and *only* antidepressants that are stimulants or act like stimulants (i.e Wellbutrin) seems to affect my depressions. It seems that they have more to do with my level of alertness than anything else.
