My experience with ritalin is that its the best for me personally. When I first started on it the first thing I noticed was the ability to clean my room faster. I was also able to get trough an entire novel in half the ammount of time. These are just a couple of things.
After three years, I discovered for the first time that there is a dramatic difference between generic and brand name ritalin, and wished that I had taken it all along.
Brand name ritalin SR is far superior, in my experience, and the reuglar tablets are better as well.
As far as sexual side effects, there are none: its actually used to treat impotence.
My experiences with adderall and dexedrine were not good. It made me withdrawn and quick tempered., and they both had sexual side effects because they both have the same active ingredient.
I am currently taking concerta, (about three months) and have just increased to 72 milligrams.
Ritalin tablets are good to start with because the results are usually instant if they work (as far as I know).
Hope this helps!
