With Ritalin you have to be careful about how soon you eat after taking it. Its best to take on an empty stomach if you can tolerate it. Also, caffeine, anything ascidic and phosphoric acid will lower your absporption of ritalin. For me ritalin was too short acting to work well and the crash left me tired and unable to focus.
Strattera made me very sleepy, I had to take it at night before bed.
Hope this helps
