Methylphenidate and bupropion have been demonstrated as being effective adjuncts to serotonin reuptake inhibitors in the treatment of depression (1,2). The use of these medications in case of a depressed patient whose condition was resistant to several forms of monotherapy, monotherapy with "standard" augmentation and ECT. After only a partial response to fluoxetine and methylphenidate, bupropion was added, resulting in full, sustained remission.
