In a nutshell, V, if it is working for you, is a great med. It is very long lasting and smoother then many of the other stim meds.
Since there is a pretty good chance that your depression is/was caused by your ADHD - if the V is helping you deal with your ADHD - then your depression should slowly get better.
However, all studies show that the best treatment for ADHD is both meds and behavioral modification (learning how to deal with ADHD). Since you now know why things have not been "clicking" for you, there is a lot you can do to deal with this problem. If you doc has not been feeding you this info, I think I can clue you into sites that you will find helpful. You are not the Lone Ranger in dealing with this.
By the way, MJ, is a very common way to self medicate. Unfortunately, it does not deal with the problem. It does hide it quite well however. Don't look to it as the solution. Keep in touch. Good luck!
