The only thing I can think of is making a drastic switch to Parnate. But, I don't know what effect Parnate would have on your narcolepsy and cataplexy and you may likely need at least a small dose of a stimulant. And, you would have to go through a complete washout, which would no doubt be difficult and trying. Anyway, that is all I have to offer - sorry.

I am so very sorry you are going through this. My thoughts are with you.

> I am being pulled off Ritalin because it is wasting me away to a skeleton and causing terrible jitteriness and anxiety. It also forced me, because of cardiovascular effects, to lower my dosage of nortriptyline to 50 mg/day, and this has worsened the jitteriness immeasurably and brought back my cataplectic synptoms with terrible force (hallucinations, sleep paralysis- last Sunday when I fell asleep I felt like I was literally being mummified- i cannot describe how AWFUL this was-). I don't see how I can take adderall if I experienced extreme anorexia on ritalin, and correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the cardiovascular s/e of amphetamines are greater then those of ritalin. On 100 mg nortriptyline I have no hallucinations and less jitteriness. But the fatigue, the f*king fatigue. eighteen cups of coffee a day. the caffeine does nothing for my ADD, but it keeps me awake. Awake, but not really functional.
