Re: Adult taking ADHD Medication and have a ? PLEASE

Hey, have you tried Ritalin (Methylphenidate)? Here in Canada I get a generic Methylphenidate and it is dirt cheap. It is quick release though, but dosed correctly ( dose/time intervals), I find it works great. Methylphenidate has been around for a long time, and in Canada there are alot of generics that are very cheap. There are also alot of long acting Methylphenidate medications on the market which are probably more expensive. Again here in Canada most of the long acting (Methylphenidate) meds are new so they are still under patent, so they are some what costly. I am sure that is to be true in the USA as well. Anyway we do have one that is quite reasonable.
The short acting ones work just fine if the amount of times that you take them are correct. Just like most of the other stimulants, you can crash pretty hard. I take mine every 4 hours not a moment later. 7:00, 11:00, 3:00
the last dose wearing off around 7:00 pm.
