Sense quitting antidepressant I've had no energy, tired all day-so doc prescribed me focalin (dexmethylphenidate) 10mg 1x a day- will it help w energy? Safe 2take long term??

If your lack of . energy is a symptom of recurrence of your depression, off-label use of a low dose of a stimulant may not address the issue as well as Cognitive-Behavoioral Therapy & a trial of a different antidepressant. Discuss with your psychiatrist. However, long-term use of Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) s usually safe. It may increase anxiety, if that is also an issue for you.
