    Any advice on comming off Ritalin?

    I was prescribed Ritalin and at first I was fine. Didn't take it on weekends. Then about 4 months into the meds I started abusing it. I went through all my extra Ritalin and my old Vyvanse prescription within a month. I was switched to Adderall but I can't seem to get off of Ritalin. I know I'm addicted because my friend took it away because he was afraid I was going to overdose and I freaked out. The withdraw is terrible even when going off slowly. I really don't know what to do because I know I need help but I can't afford it. I want off of it because if I don't it's going to end up putting me in the hospital or dead. Anyone have any advice on coming off of it because the withdraw ends up being really bad no matter what I try.

    Hi, it's very easy to become addicted to stimulants. However, I'm curious to hear what your withdrawal symptoms are? With these meds, ritalin, adderall, amphetamines, etc...the withdrawal period stinks. You feel like you have the flu on steroids but it's not necessarily a harmful withdrawal and it last only a few days then you should be ok. You have to make your mind up to stop and just stop. It's easier said then done but it's really that simple. L-tyrosine is an herbal supplement that can help ease the symptoms, along with a lot of rest and ibuprofen for aches if you get them. They say chamomile tea can help too. You got this!
