I wouldn't say that stimulants are short term. I mean, they can be, but not always.

Ritalin, for example, is a dopamine / norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It has minimal monoamine releasing effects. I don't see this as being any different than say desipramine on norepinephrine.

If you're getting high, your brain will fight that off, but if it is restoring some sort of balance, then who knows how long it will last.
