Post Adderall causing Depression?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has taken Adderall with antidepressants and starting feeling worse with the Adderall thrown in the mix? The Adderall was for concentration, but instead I would start to feel bad about myself and think of suicidal thoughts. Once I stopped with the Adderall those thoughts stopped.
I combined the Add with Wellbutrin, Celexa and Cytomel.
thnx.
Dave

I know what you mean. I took adderal for a couple years now I'm on concerta. Both I've been on anti-depressents. It doesn't matter. As long as your doctor talks to you about what can happen with mixing two drugs, that can counteract eachother and you have doses that work well. It doesn't matter, suicidal thoughts come and go. I guess with adderal I had a bit more suicidal thoughts, but overall it doesn't have a huge difference. Hope that helps.

- Hi! I am on Paxil and Adderall and I have had no bad experiences on them. I take 30mg of Paxil and 20mg of Adderall. The combo really helps me, I think we are going to up my dose of the Adderall though. But so far so good!
