amphetamine for depression household06

I tried taking Dexedrine once briefly. I was also taking Parnate at the time, and the Dexedrine caused my blood pressure to go up a lot so I didn't continue taking it, but this shouldn't happen if you're not taking a MAOI (if you haven't tried MAOIs, you should consider it). A lot of people find that amphetamine helps them feel more motivated and improves their concentration as well as giving them more energy. Some people with depression have symptoms suggestive of ADD, and for them stimulants are often helpful.

10-20 mg/day would be a typical starting dose. How to divide it depends on which formulation you're taking (immediate-release or sustained-release).
