View Full Version : Feeling weirdly dizzy/vertigo Ritalin

08-06-14, 10:12 AM
I'm taking a very tiny dose of Ritalin IR, only 2.5mg starting yesterday.

This morning I am experiencing a very weird dizzy/vertigo feeling after taking my first dose. It also feels like a weird stoned feeling or the spins from drinking too much.

I took it on an empty stomach. Lol it feels so weird.

Right now I'm laying down because sitting and standing only makes the dizziness worse.

Anyone else experienced this kind of dizziness?

You didn't have any caffeine this morning, did you? Have you eaten anything since taking it? I do feel a bit weird if I take my dose w/o food and with coffee only. Most people say they can't have caffeine with their meds.... so if you're a caffeine-a-holic, you'll need to stop until you know how the meds work on a daily basis.

Could also be anxiety... especially if you have other health issues you're managing.

I stopped drinking caffeine about 2 weeks ago.
I got so dizzy that I took a long nap and just woke up.

I took another dose just now after eating some waffles that I made and so far feel ok...hopefully things wont get weird/spinny.

You might just need to make sure you eat with it :) My adderall does that to me in the mornings if I'm not careful.
