Stimulant meds for depression?

After being through a battery of AD's (Lexapro being the longest - 10 years now), I've had relapses... in which my PDOC has RX'd everything from Cymbalta to Buspar to Abilify and nothing is working My aunt has had a low dosage stimulant prescribed to her (in addition to her AD) and it has worked wonders for her. Anyone else tried this combo? She is *not* ADHD by the way. Apparently some doc's prescribe stimulants for hard-to-treat depression. Just wondering if this is remotely common out there, and if it'd be worth bringing up to my PDOC at the next appt.
