I'm taking remeron and ritalin. I was tx resistant to everything but the remeron, and I still have some low periods on the remeron. I've found that low doses of ritalin keep me focused and motivated during those low points, and recently I've switched to taking it daily, instead of PRN. I don't care for the rebound after a dose wears off, and I often worry about what long term stim use may do to my health, but I'm going to stick to it as long as I am in school, because it keeps me on top of my work. I do need to take trazodone at night sometimes because the ritalin may have worn off enough to make me feel tired, but not enough to let me fall asleep. I can't say anything about the abuse potential, but I really dislike the feeling I get when it's washing out of my system. I get keyed up, and if I don't get to the gym fast (or take a dose) I'm liable to punch a wall, and this is coming from a relatively chill, quiet girl.
