Currently using Ritalin for add and depression

I currently use Ritalin for ADD and it also helps depression. Does anyone have suggestions for supplementing this with another drug. I have heard wellbutrin works well with Ritalin but I would like to here from someone with experience. Ritalin is the only drug that has ever helped me but when it wears off I am depressed again. (and I have tried Concerta and did like it)  Any suggestions?

Wellbutrin does work well for many people. It is one of the more stimulating antidepressants. The best thing to do is ask your Dr if these two meds can  safely be combined.

I just started taking Ritalin today and I take 80 mg of prozac.  I was having a severe depression problem from taking too many pain meds for my chronic migraines, which worsened my already strong depression, and today is the first day i have felt like myself again in a very long time.  seems like a good cocktail.
