> Just to add, Ritalin may also act via a 5-ht related mechanism. A metabolite of Ritalin acts as a 5-ht1a agonist. 5-ht1a agonists (like buspirone) can also reduce hyperactivity (but perhaps not improve cognition to the same degree).

That is a new piece of knowledge about Ritalin to me. In any case, I have read that activation of 5-HT1A is pro-dopaminergic (opposite to 5-TH2C). These facts almost certainly also play an important role in the pharmacology of SSRIs.
