The general consensus is that stimulants also aggravate anxiety and depression for most people similar to how alcohol does.
If benzos help relieve anxiety for you, I see no problem as long as you are not abusing them.
opiate abuse and addiction will really mess with your mood and cause depression/anxiety mood swings.
When using/abusing all of these drugs simply switching antidepressants won't really do anything to improve your condition. You have to get off of all the drugs first in order to give any antidepressant a fair shot at providing benefits for you.
yet still I read of people who take SSRIs and stims, or SSRIs and opiates daily as they were prescribed. As for me, I rarely abuse any legal or illegal drug. I took 5-apb and rolled great despite the prozac, two months ago I got drunk and I swear it was the last time for the hangover was quite hellish. I think it's possible to get high and be safe at the same time. That's why I would never ever take a MAOI, and wellbutrin later in my life when I can't get it up.
