> I am begining to think that what I really need is a stimulant as much as or perhaps more than I need an antidepressant (for dysthymia). But I live in the UK and it is almost unheard of to prescribe meds like ritalin to adults here. My GP and p-doc are quite adament they simply can not possibly prescribe such a thing as ritalin for me with my condition which maybe they presume is some simple mood disorder.

i called my old pdoc from london and he mentioned putting me on concerta (ritalin) like it was no big deal ..... of course he was a private pdoc, so i'm sure he'd do anything to keep you happy :)

if you are in teh area i could give you his info



> Maybe I need to source the ritalin myself but there comes the danger that it is seen by the authorities as a drug of abuse (if taken in sufficiently large quantities) and it will probably be priced accordingly too even if I try to order it from some overseas pharmacy.

yeah i don't think dr. bob allows us to talk about such things so i won't comment except to say that i hope you make sure it isn't contraindicated first


> Maybe I can get some friends in the US to get it prescribed and then to let me have it. At least that way it will not be cut with some contaminant.

sounds like a lot of hassle.... i'm sure you can find a doc in the UK to perscribe you some ritalin dude
