Anyone Tried Ritalin or Adderall?

Posted by bleauberry on May 8, 2018, at 12:41:31

I miss my Ritalin. I was on it for about a year. It helped so much. Hobbies, activities, social, endurance, anxiety, sleep, mood, multi-tasking - all greatly improved.

If your primary symptom is in the realm of anhedonia/amotivation, I think either of these two meds holds way more potential than any other psych meds I can think of. SSRIs, TCAs and APs are likely to make these symptoms worse not better. Generally speaking.

I stopped Ritalin for surgery and never got back on it. I don't need it. But it does make life considerably better. It made me grind my teeth. It made it hard to get an appetite - good for a heavy person but I am not heavy. The cost was $120 month cash. \

I'm just curious who else has had experience with Ritalin or adderall? As mono therapy or cocktail? (mine was mono therapy)

Just opinion, but I think these stimulants offer far greater potential to improve quality of life for psychiatric patients than nearly all of the other meds prescribed. My last doctor felt that way too.
