Interesting study says antidepressants performance enhancing drugs

I had an interesting reaction in which prozac gave me energy for 4 weeks. Little is known about why this happens.

As a quote
Bupropion (Wellbutrin) is an antidepressant that is chemically related to the amphetamines & has an initial stimulant effect. The stimulant effect of bupropion can lead to initially increased energy & improvement, but this fades over a few weeks, & the dose usually has to be pushed higher to regain a sustained antidepressant effect. Like other stimulants, bupropion can worsen anxiety/jitteriness.

The problem w/ stimulants & depression is that they may relieve symptoms quickly, but then they lose their effect. About the only time a stimulant is used for depression is ritalin (methylphenidate) in the elderly.

Fluoxetine (Prozac) has a well known initial stimulant & appetite suppressant effect. This fades quickly.

Tranylcypromine (Parnate), a very old MAO inhibitor is also usually energizing initially. The MAOI's have many, many side effects, but can be very effective, particularly in bipolar depression.

Everybody is different & the range of responses to any antidepressant can be very wide. Some people will feel energized by SSRIs like sertraline or citalopram, but most won't.

The chemistry of this is interesting this and kratom and tgeir chemical structure

Chemically it is not a stimulant but can produce stimulant like effects I know it prevents serotonin from being reabsorbed but how does the compound react to form stimulant properties

And dxm works the same
And so can kratom

Another example
The use of Prozac by runners made headlines in 1994 when Alberto Salazar won the Comrades Marathon in South Africa while taking this medication; he was accused of cheating by some. Letters to the editor of this and other running magazines were divided between those who thought that running performance was enhanced while taking this medication and those who felt that performance was impaired.
