> Has anybody heard of this, or have experience with it? My pysch mentioned it and I was a little surprised because I know stimulants carry a lot of stigma. I think he would want to try this before an MAOI, but I'm not sure.

Stimulants are a widely used tool for depression. Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, Dexedrine - they all work VERY well when paired with SSRIs.

I've been on stimulants for depression for years. Doctors would rather prescribe stimulants than benzos sometimes!

There's more stigma attached to mental illness than there is to using stimulants for depression. Without Adderall - I'd not be able to get out of bed.
