In Reply to: Im a19 yr old female and i think im addicted to ritalin! posted by Sarah on August 18, 2000 at 11:47:01:

Sarah,
I am in the same boat that you are. I love the side effecs of ritalin and take way too much. I do have ADD and am prescribed 60 mil daily but I probably take 120 mil or more. I love not being hungry, sleepy, and being so focused. The problem is you must sleep and eat. I always run out of my medicine with 2 weeks or more remaining. Those 2 weeks are horrible. Weight loss is not really going to happen w/ ritalin. (in my opinion & experience) The minute you come down from it, you are ravenously hungry. I eat so much. I also can't sleep often from overuse, then comes the cycle of sleep-inducing drugs--benadryl, tylenol pm, soma, Nightime cough syrup! Man, I wish I could curb my addiction. I feel powerless against it. Maybe others could give tips to help me cut back
