Re: could pristiq prevent adderall crash? desolationrower

Hi there D/R - sorry for one long paragraph, oh, you're not going to like my reply to the first e-mail (about PEA). I tend to write stream of consciousness.
Since I wrote this about pristiq, I've taken selegiline and Emsam, as well as remeron. I've done really well mood-wise with selegiline (had to stop for the allergy) and when I first started remeron at just 15mg, along with my adderall, I seemed to be in full depression remission for the first time in over a year, and this was a depression full of despair.
My doctor upped my dose of remeron, and every time he did I got more depressed, so he thought it was too much Norepinephrine (though I don't know if I agree, because when I had effexor XR and pristiq, and felt too much, usually I just felt jittery or irritable, but this depression was a dark despair that came in in a few days faster and harder).

He cut back my remeron, and I still felt awful, so he added in alternative things (maca, rhodiola rosea), but I think I was taking way too much melatonin (9mg) at night for too long which I think affected my hormones, rearranged too much (I think it is a neuromodulator? or neurohormone?) and affected me in a big way.

I stopped melatonin completely last week, didn't sleep that 1st night, but the next night fell asleep for about 12 hours (so unlike me, passed out in my clothes, my husband unable to wake me and I hadn't taken anything else!) Have started to feel better each day slowly. But that's another subject (sorry!)

I was thinking, and still wondering, if norepinephrine, or serotonin, from an SNRI can prevent a mood crash from adderall. I didn't ever mind the energy crash, but the mood crashes were unbearable.

I wondered if it was a possibility, or had anyone else ever taken adderall alone, or with something else that didn't prevent a mood crash, but found that something, like an SNRI, did prevent it? I'd love to hear!
Thanks! (Hope this was more readable :)
