In reply to stimulants for depression?, posted by nickguy on July 6, 2006, at 19:16:13
Yes. methylphenidate has been part of my mix for quite a while. It keeps me out of bed. I take it in the morning. Once in a while I've forgotten it, and made it thru the day, later discovered it was still in the pill slot for that morning, it was then obvious that was why I was dragging myself thru the day like a slug in slow motion. So yes - it makes a positive difference. I still am not super-charged, btw. My pdoc wants me to take 3 a day - I take 1. We've agreed that on the dose he's recommended, I'd be even crazier than I normally am.
> 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.
