I would agree with the previous poster. There is mixed evidence that they can work in pure unipolar depression, but there is much more evidence that they can treat depression when it co-occurs with ADHD.

I think (like with marihuana) that the evidence has been skewed a bit by the reluctance to seriously study a potentially addictive treatment for depression (even though they are routinely prescribed for ADHD).

There are some studies where they work quite well as adjuncts, especially when hardcore fatigue is present.

I used Ritalin as an adjunct for a while and it was quite helpful. Although, there is a bit of up and down that you have to deal with.
