I don't think you're supposed to get depressed on ADHD meds, maybe you're using the word incorrectly?

The loss of control you describe isn't there when you're on the meds b/c the meds help you to control the urges and impulses to do those things. It keeps things inside 'quieter', maybe it's that 'quiet' you're experiencing as 'depression'?

If it's not, if you're actually feeling depressed, then you should tell your doc ASAP, as he would need to assess that.
