It wouldn't do a thing for depression.
I have ADD, depression, and anxiety. Intuniv made my head / mind really quiet! This made it so I was ruminating less and has made it easier to be mindful and combat depressive thoughts. I don't know how well it would work during a severe depressive episode as I am currently just dealing with seasonal and premenstrual depression, but it's definitely worth the try!
This medication is not used to treat depression. It may help regulate impulses whether they be thoughts or actions.
