Why am I not motivated to do Job or task
I am a 24 years old male. I feel very unmotivated to look for a job and even when I join a company I am unable to complete a task with constant motivation and energy. I thought joining MBA(PG course) would help me to be more productive but I couldn't prepare well for my exams and started failing in subjects. So, I dropout MBA course because I couldn't bear failure anymore. AlI these problems led to drop in my self esteem causing Depression and Social Anxiety. Even I was not doing good in school. I always fail in subjects. I passed 10th with low marks and school lowest (53%) percentage for my 12th board exam. But never felt sad or depressed during my school days. Do you think what I am facing is ADHD? Will I get relieved if I start treatment for ADHD ?Because I have tried almost all the Anti-Depressants and it hasn't shown any improvement in motivation and energy. Even I was prescribed with Anti Psychotic drug, benzos and mood stabilisers, but it didn't help me. Thank you in advance

Don't be so harsh on yourself and just see a psychiatrist as this can be depression or ADHD which needs further evaluation.

First fill up Beck depressive inventory. If there is depression that won’t improve with Adhd. Get a proper consult eg call fortis Mohali. Get a consult with Sumedha Banerjee and get an adult Adhd assessment. Second antidepressants need to be taken in full dosage. If one doesn’t work then a second one Is tried. Or a third. Third is usually venlafaxine. Doses are increased gradually. Eg Escitalopram maybe increased to 15, 20 and then 30 mg. So it is not clear what you have taken. Third start CBT with a good clinical psychologist or psychiatrist. That requires you to be regular.
