> I have had about five clients on that combo and all eventually stopped the Cylert and were placed on Ritalin with good response. One individual abused his Ritalin to the extent that it was discontinued. All five contiued with Wellbutrin and Ritalin with the exception of the individual who had to stop Ritalin because of abuse. Cylert takes several weeks to begin working, so hang in there. Keep your doctor updated on the effects of your medications. If they are not working, do not be reluctant to say so.

My experience has been the reverse of the the above.
ie. Had problems w/ Ritalin and switched to Cylert
& Wellbutran. Within the 1st mo. or so after the switch,
I noticed that I had read as many books in the
past mo.Than I had read in the past 3-5 years!
The combo has definately stabilized my life thus far.
I also heard the business about Cylert taking
a long time to be effective, but in my case
I noticed major improvement on the second day!
Another thing that I like about Cylert is that it
does not produce euphoria and it lasts far longer than
than Ritalin. Plus, it's a schedule IV drug
and doesn't require a triplicate script and
the doc can prescribe up to 5 refills per script
and can also call in refills via the phone.
