Ritalin? Really?

Posted by KathrynLex on April 20, 2004, at 12:54:51

Hi Guys,

I've just been prescribed Ritalin. I don't know anything about this med, except that it's often prescribed for ADD.

I currently take 20 mgs of Lexapro (for anxiety and depression)and 150 mgs of Wellbutrin, but have zero energy. I saw my pdoc this morning and he wants to replace the Wellbutrin with Ritalin.

My pdoc told me that if it does any of the following I should stop taking it:

-causes insomnia
-increases anxiety
-makes me feel jittery
-makes me hyper

Can anyone tell me how Ritalin makes you feel after you take it? What does it do for you attention span and energy levels? What are some of the most common side effects? I would really appreciate hearing other peoples experiences.
