Can cause depression: These drugs, if misused, can all cause depression. A psychiatrist may help you understand whether the depression came first (and you're taking the drugs in an attempt to self-medicate), or if the depression is the side-effect of the drug. There are better ways to help depression than stimulants.

Probably not: A search of the medical literature (on www.Pubmed.Gov) shows no data or studies that would suggest this is true (even if it might be theoretically).
A 30-year-old member asked:

Probably won't hurt: Remeron (mirtazapine) probably doesn't increase sex drive, but it doesn't decrease libido and sexual performance as can many other antidepressants.
