Hi Dr. Price,

Hope your evening is going well and thank you so much for the time you commit to helping us on this forum.

I was wondering if you have any thoughts on if there is a link between depression and taking stimulants. Or at least, one you have observed in your practice.

Thanks again. I really appreciate your help.

Stimulants can help lift depressed mood but then worsen depressed mood when you come down from them as they wear off.
