Can you help me with ADD

Patient

Q: I am a 24 y/o male. I have not been a very happy person since I was younger. I constantly feel like I have no energy. I have no interests in anything right now and have not for years. I feel like I just stare up in space and have nothing in my head all day long. I still live with my parents. I have no ambition. I don't want to work. I have no motivation. I cannot take change that well. I don't want to go out and socialize with people. I have tried drug free alternatives and they did work. However, I feel like I have gone into a depression since I have been out of school since last December and have no real job or real income. I wanted to know if Adderall or Ritalin was right for me and in which dosages?

Symptoms:  Depression
