: I am 36. I tried ritalin and it didn't work for me. I currently take effexor. I am about to start on a newer drug called provigil. My neurologist says it is the perfect ADD medication. You might check into it.
: Good Luck,
: : i'm 29 years old and considering begining a low-dose of ritalin to combat a add-type disorder that i may have. i'm hoping to get the opinion of other adults on ritalin and what your experiences are with the medication. any information you have will be very helpful. thanks!
Can anyone help me? I have been on Ritalin for four days now. I have never been diagnosed with add. However over the past couple of years I have been very spacey and forgetful with difficulty concentrating. (age 42) My psychiatrist felt the Ritalin was worth a try. I also take zoloft. After I take RitalingI feel more relaxed and energetic. However I am having a lot of difficulty falling asleep at night. The doctor had prescribed 10 mg twice a day and I cut back to 15 mg a day which helped the insomnia some. Will the side effect of insomomnia go away with time? You may repsond to my personal e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
