Re: Focalin less agitating than methylphenidate? Ame Sans Vie

I used to take regular Ritalin and now cannot tolerate it due to edginess and skin rashes. Focalin is tolerable and accepatable to, and so I sometimes take it for short periods. I prefer it to Ritalin.

The only thing that bothers me about Focalin, however, is that when it wears off, I feel sort of wasted and depressed. This never happened to me on Ritalin; in constrast, I'd feel great after the Ritalin-rebound passedm with a fresh brain and nice energy. Focalin leaves me feeling used up, almost like an ampetapmine, sometimes worse. This is one reason I don't take it very often.

Anyone else notice this about Focalin?
