> I have chronic treatment resistant atypical depression. I have tried everything...even ECT, am currently on 90 mgs. Remeron, and 300 mgs. of Effexor. I'm still severely depressed...my Pdoc mentioned maybe trying a stimulant like ritalin or concerta. I would appreciate your ideas and opinions please.

Have you tried MAOIs yet? If not you should.

What are your symptoms? I was given a stimulant as a last ditch effort to help me. It gave me a false sense of well being (so I felt good). Over time though it made me more depressed. If you have tried everything then I think you should try a stimulant and see what happens. But first you try an MAOI.
