Just like ADHD children on Ritalin who become MORE hyperactive, there are the exceptions where an adult placed on Ritalin will become calmer. Most adults on Ritalin that I have encountered over the years were on Ritalin as youngsters and continued to show results into adulthood.
Hey Doc, I was mis-diagnosed(sp) and was put on adderall..... As it turns out Adderall gave me very much of a sense of being on cocaine/X
(not that I know anything about those things)...
It was at that point that I chose to no longer refill those or that particular prescription.
Since then, I've dabbled with Cymbalta(sp) and I have completely gotten away from Paxil.....
In short, I've talked to you about ALL of the meds I've been on over the years. That said, I've given up on all that and don't even take aspririn or iron suplements as a regimen anymore.
