Ah, live chat tonight? ;-) Do you subscribe to an instant messenging service?

I used ICQ but, you know ... too many girls : )

I must have read something about your IQ ...
what the hell are you saying ? : )

>It's possible. Methylphenidate has a fairly >short half-life of 2.9 hours.

Only two days of Ritalin and I'm already thinking about switching to Concerta ... Sometimes the life of a mentall illed guy can be hard ;-)

>Maybe, but I think it's strong serotonergic >effects make for a more probable (though >paradoxical) explanation.

I agree, I think both statements can be true. I'm likely to be hypersensitive to serotoninergic meds. I could feel the effect of 1mg of Citalopram ! (the recommended dose for depression is 10mg, OCD 20mg)

>I'm not sure. The Ritalin regulars on the board >would field that better than I could. ;-)

I'm trying to avoid alcohol as far as I can. Now I have the sensation that I *can* do it. So far Ritalin has won the first prize (it wasn't difficult anyway) ... compared to Anafranil & SSRIs is a candy ... also a child could take it ! (ops ;-) On the other hand I planned to go to a party this evening but I'm little afraid about the rebound-effect : / (don't want to stangle anybody, it's a friend of mine's party ;-)

>I work in a nutrition store! :-) Employee >discounts!! LOL

You're are the right man in the right place !
I laughed a lot when I red you work there ... Please leave something also for the customers ! ;-)

Anyway, it seems we're managing to do what we wanted to do despite our problems ... (mumble mumble ... I'm getting too optimistic ... what will happen to my dark look ? ;-)
