CarolAnn is on to something here. I, too, just went nuts with Ritalin; i was supposed to be taking 40mg a day and it was more like 100-150. It's just too much like cocaine for me. I then tried sustained release Ritalin, and that didn't really do _anything_ (I'm depressive/ADD and the stimulant is supposed to augment my effexor in addition to treating the ADD). I was put on Adderall about a week ago, and I'm a convert--I don't experience the crash I was getting with IR Ritalin, and I get more of a bump than I did with SR Ritalin, but I don't feel speed-freaky, and I have no desire to abuse it. My doctor said the drug was invented just for people like us--the ones with the crash problem, usually with a mood disorder on top of the ADD. She told me that it works because it includes both isomers of dextroamphetamine, which means that you get that great double action: long term support, with a better stimulant effect. You should talk to your doctor about it.

> Hey again, just FYI, if you do give up on the ritalin, you may want to try Adderall. ritalin was *not* the thing for me, but I have found some improvement and *no* side effects from Adderall, as you know, your mileage may vary. All we can do is keep on keepin' on!CarolAnn
