> would a different antidepressant selection let you keep the vyvanse? I do not know your history, nor am I any kind of expert, but...there was a small study in which the Effexor+remeron combination did about as well as Parnate in a group of depressed people, w/o the potentially serious adverse effects of the MAOI.
> I seem to recall some posters on here taking tramadol "off label" for mood problems. Clearly not an option on an MAOI, but seems like something worth talking to the psychiatrist about, if you feel like it.

Hey, yes he let me have vyvanse with Effexor and a few other "main" AD's but they were leaving me pretty depressed and still fairly anhedonic. Vyvanse+Parnate is doing a much better job even though by evening I'm anhedonic again.

I've tried remeron and effexor separately but not together. I didn't do well on remeron but it's worth remembering - thanks.

You're spot-on about tramodol since I recently was on oxycodone for CP and it was, initially especially, very good for my anhedonia. However as we all know the opioid effect lessens over time and thus it's not a good long-term solution. I manage to get by without it now. It was great while it lasted :/

I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
