What is the best antidepressant to take with Adderall?

That one is a good question to ask your doctor. However, do not,under any circumstances, take an antidepressant that is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, or MAOI. These block the action of the neurochemical monoamine oxidase which is responsible for the breakdown of dopamine in the mesolimbic pathway of the brain. Adderall, or more specifically, dextroamphetamine causes the cascading release of dopamine in the brain which is it's primary action. Taking adderall with an MAOI can lead to toxic levels of dopamine in the brain leading to hypertensive crises, heart attack and death. Therefore, while you need to consult a doctor for the real answer, something like Zoloft or another selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor or SSRI would have the least possible side affects.
