Angry ritalin Problems

So many problems with this drug, not sure why I do not stop it. Here is what I have been going through in the last three months.
-no Sleep for days at a time
-dry mouth
-PAINFUL tongue and mouth sores
-back aches
-feelings of withdrawl
-depression when out of system
I have not been able to find anything online that points to these symptoms being a part of too much ritalin or an adverse reaction so if anyone has experienced anything similar please let me know! Thank

Re: ritalin Problems

I know the sleeping thing can happen. When we told our doctor about my son not sleeping he told us that if we gave him Benedryl at night .....the antihysteme would make him sleep. He said it is non addicting and we only used it when he had trouble sleeping. That is about the only thing I could offer as a suggestion on the sleep part. Some of the things that you were describing sounds like you are in a depression which has nothing to do with your Ritalin. Depression can make you feel the same way except the earache portion....not sure of. If you have to go on an anti not feel bad about it.......I highly recommend Cymbalta. Does not make you gain weight and it has worked great for myself.
