Hi DSCH, nice to hear again. I red the 3 Beer Effect's post and other who said similar things.

You're right, getting amphetamines in Italy would be a big deal, even if my doctor allowed me to take them ... (I know he goes often to USA ... maybe he has a capacious suitcase ;-)

Yesterday anyway I was very very tired therefore I'm curios to see what happens today having after having slept ten hours.

What I have experienced in these days is a switch from inhattentive to overfocused type which is congruent with my latent obsessive tendencies.

I say "latent" because when I'm not on meds I'm too easily distracted to be obsessed about something in particular.

On Ritalin I'm having troubes in shifting attention from task to task. I'm so concentrated on a particular thing that the rest of the world doesn't exist.

For ex. a friend of mine called me half an hour ago on the mobile phone but I have not yet returned the call because *I have* to finish posting.

According to Amen people who get overfocused on stimulants are the one who will take advantage from antiobsessive meds like ... Anafranil (gulp), Prozac and so on.

... but I had similar problems also with Anafranil. If this is the effect of Ritalin I will experience also in the future I however prefer it to Anafranil because at least I'm not suicidal, anxious, rude to people, fat, semi-impotent, and so on.

Anyway I'll stay on Ritalin for a period to see what happens. so far it has been the greates med I have tried because at least the side-effects are bearable and the mood is good (you know I get depressed with prozac and anafranil).

The good thing about this new psychiatrist is that he seems to believe in what I say (he didn't say thing like "antidepressant don't make people depressed bacause are antidepressants") and he's open minded about *trials and errors*.

the bad thing is that he's often abroad and the doctor who gives me in actual fact the Ritalin is a pediatrist who is half-deaf, severe ADHD, and half-english-speaking : o

Which supplement would you suggest for my stuck-problems ?
(oh, damn, I wrote for half an hour, I got stuck again : )

(about Concerta I don't know if the pediatrist can get it ... my understanding was then sometimes he can and sometimes he can't ... I think also that before switching to Concerta he wants to know how much Ritalin I need)
