Anyone take Luvox in combination with some kind of stimulant?  I am very close to trying it again for a third time.  First couple times  I tried it, I was forced to stop due to really bad Depersonalization from the Luvox.  I have a very long history of difficulty with SSRI's due to them inducing DP and DR.  I do know that stimulants tend to help break me out of the DP so I'm thinking of trying one this time around with the Luvox but not sure which one to try.  If anyone has experience taking it with a stimulant, I'd love to hear.  Also, it doesn't have to just be an ADD medication but could be anything with a stimulating property (another AD, modafinil, etc.)

I've been wondering about taking it with a stimulant myself. Does Abilify count? Abilify is an AAP but it makes me hyper.

Concerta might be a good one, it's name repackaged ritalin or Adderall XR/IR.  I only have experience with Concerta and Adderall, both worked the well and pretty much in the same way.  Both are very very expensive (especially adderall, can't remember concerta).  I've been told that adderall is more potent though.
