This is not a given, I know of a Narcoleptic bloke who has taken Desoxyn, (Medical Methamphetamine) for 40 years first, 4-5 15 mgs SR in the morning, now 4-5mgs tabs 4x a day=80mgs!!, AND he WORKS and has done so for MANY years -lucky him.
After taken Ritalin for 1.5 years, it along with moderate doses of Valium seems to have changed in effects. I'm thinking about taking Effexor (mentioned by a PsyDoc I saw) either alone or with the Ritalin, when i see my PCDoc on Monday. I tried Imipramine at 150mgs daily for Dep, second line ADD treatment and it had a host of SEs,I also began smoking as a result. since it metobilises to Desipramine is their any advantage?. I'm sure i have depresssion and need AD treatment. Stimulants seem to provide temporary and superficial relief to this.
Thank you All!!!
