And that's the thing too. Cognitive difficulties in depression are a significant hinderance to recovery. I think for me (at least for the time being) the improvement in concentration and drive are why ritalin seems to be helping.

SSRIs do nothing for my drive, concentration, interest, apathy, psychomotor slowing etc. It many ways they make this worse. This has reciprocal effects on my self-esteem. Every time I quit something (lack of interest, concentration, memory etc) my depression gets worse.

With Ritalin I can actually 'get into' something, stay focused on it, and derive some pleasure from the completion of it. I'm only taking 5-10mg of it too.
