I'm glad to hear the Ritalin is working for you!

I wouldn't use the word "addicted" to describe your situation. Stimulants typically increase energy, so naturally you will have less energy when off the Ritalin. Likewise, your blood level of Ritalin should be at its lowest point just before you take it, which happens to be the morning in your case.

Is it that you aren't waking up or that you're having trouble getting out of bed and up and going?

If the latter, try setting an alarm 15-30 minutes before you would normally get up, and take the Ritalin immediately when it goes off. You can go back to bed, and if you time it so the Ritalin will have kicked in by the time your regular alarm goes off, that might help you get going.

Used to do that when I first started taking stimulants for ADHD.
