What were you taking before the Ritalin? Were you on meds for the depression before the Ritalin? For how long? Did the depression start after the Ritalin?

When I was first diagnosed, I was told I had depression and maybe ADD. I started Celexa and Dexedrine, and got so depressed I nearly killed myself. The culprit in my case was the Celexa, and I did a great deal better on Wellbutrin and Dexedrine, then finally Dexedrine alone. Look for interactions, perhaps the Ritalin reacted with something you already were already taking, or maybe whatever you were taking for depression hadn't reached full efficacy yet (in my case, the Celexa took a full month to make me ready to die, and five weeks to work its way completely out of my system).

Ritalin may well be the villain in your case, but be careful of reuptake inhibitors. In my own personal experience I've seen them save one life and destroy another, we all react differently to different meds.

Best of luck.
