dexedrine is used for depression sometimes, like what said treatment resistant, it's an add on to a antidepressant. But usally they don't go very high in the dose, the maximum dose i've ever seen someone take is 90mg of dexamphetamine spansules, at a NA meeting for their adhd. they took 4 spansules at morning and 4 spanules in after noon to last exacly 12 hours.

dex was a antidepressant marketed in the 1960s, if you go throuhg the pharmacutical ads, they put "make you day better with dexedrine" for depression. They also had something called Dexamyl, which was a combination of dexamphetamine and amobarbital, it was mainly an antidepressant. But people abused it and dexamyl at higher did produce stimulantion like dexedrine by itself, the barbiturate... amobarbital would counter act the stimulation to keep it leveled, but people reported cognitive impairment because of it. It was later remvoed from market for various reasons. But there are tons of old ads from 50s and 60s marketing dexedrine, methedrine for depression. But they moved away from dopamine meds and started the tricyclic antidepressants targeting serotonin and NE.

yes definitely it could help, the only thing is when dexederine were's off your not in a good mood, its makes you kinda irritable and tired.
