View Full Version : Different brands of meds?

I'm getting my ritalin tonight, finally after 6 months of discussion from all my doctors they've come to a agreement on my medication!

I can't find much info about adults and ritalin in Australia, do we have different brands like they do in the States? Americans seem to talk about how they react differently to different brands, has anyone here experienced a similar thing?

I'm only aware of Ritalin and Concerta.

I doubt we have different brands in Australia!
We have little choice of meds available to us when it comes to treatment for ADHD.

When I mentioned this gripe to my shrink he said we may be getting Vyvanse!

Good luck with Ritalin. I had high hopes but it made me do anxious that I couldn't bare it :(
My most memorable experience on it was a positive one - reading a book and my brain actually stopping at each word! This has never happened to me before that I was freaked out by it!
