I imagine a very, very small percentage of people glean a true therapeutic antidepressant response using methylphenidate monotherapy. At best, methylphenidate serves as a true adjunct to other drugs to produce a true remission. This is not the case with you, though. For you, I see methylphenadate as being palliative.

This is a good thing. Replay it in your mind from time to time. It is a concrete reason to have hope and make that state of mind your goal - minus the manic reaction (if you can).


As always, I wish you luck in finding what you are looking for. For some reason, I have an easy time praying for you - much more so than I can muster for myself. Strange.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
