> Do stims always cause depression after they wear off? Since I'm prone to depression, am depressed right now, going through major stress, and am starting to see the seasonal depression sliding in, I can't afford to further deteriorate my mental health.

As far as I can tell, it varies based on person and medication. For me, amphetamine/dexedrine might cause a slight crash, when it wears off (I'm not really sure), but I have more experience with methylphenidate. For me, its effect just passes off without crashing, or any other negative effect. Switching stimulants seems worth a try to me--different people respond preferentially to different stims.
