Wellbutrin and Adderall are both good for 'ADD/ADDH,' but little effect on depression. I, too take WB 300 mg. for ADD only, and taking a formal anti-depressant for my depression. Also, one of major side-effect from WB is 'irritability' and 'insomnia.' As to depression, I too feel you've been sufferring from it as reading the content of your post.
Besides two S.E.s above, these two meds. are prone to aggrevate the depression due to 'stimulating effect,' although they both are TERRIFIC on 'attention related' problems. I just wonder why your pdoc. did NOT rx anti-depressant. Risperdal that is one of newer form of Anti-psychotic med. seems TOO strong in your case as seeing side-effects you're describing. However, probably your pdoc. first trying to make you calm down in his attempt to alleviate most of the depressive episodes you're experieincing.
In my suggestion, try to call your pdoc. and talk about your current situation after the Risperdal.
