Hi Pascal

FWIW, if I were in your position, I'd take the chance of a Ritalin trial. If you really have ADHD as your primary problem as opposed to just depression for some other reason, my understanding is that tolerance is quite rare. In the meantime you have a very effective treatment.

I am desperate to get hold of Ritalin (my son is using it successfully) but can't get my Pdoc to prescribe it till I have tried yet more antidepressants.
> Hi john,
> I'd like to know according to your knowledge how adrafinil can work so differently from modafinil since they almost have the same chimical structure ? I've been on modafinil 100 mg for the last 10 days and do not seem to get any benefit out of it, that's why I'm a bit reluctant about trying adrafinil since they look pretty similar to me. As I told you previously, don't know if you still remember, I was using cylert, for add + dysthemia, for the last 3 years, and it was working miraculously for me , but I had to stop it for the reason we all know(been withdrawn from the market)
> My doctor and i thought about using ritalin but I'm affraid about the tolerance problem that could occur.
> Have you heard about Concerta ? this new form of methylphenidate with its 12 hours efficiency !, but still , it remains the old ritalin...and it is not yet available in Montreal Canada. Talking about adrafinil,would I need a prescription ? if not what about problems related to customs ? I know that u'll recommand me to try amisulpuride with it but I'd like to try only one at first.
> Now I'm having very low mood with poor concentration, low motivation and going back to work day after day becomes a burden..And I'm definatly not as half efficient as before, my collegue seems to realise it..
> Well, until now I,m still hanging there...
