View Full Version : Ritalin, Concerta effects on social life.

Just signed up to this forum, trying it out. Diagnosed just under a year and put on a mix of short acting Rit and Concerta. Ever since I've started taking the medication I've noticed a sharp increase in focus and clarity. Ive been more punctual and efficient and had a lot of success in my professional life. However, I feel like the meds have slightly robbed me of my soul. I previously known among my friends as the joker and know Im more subdued in social situations. I take far less risks than I usually do, which albeit might be a good thing but I feel like one day I might loose myself. Has anyone else experienced this, and how to manage?:)

Sometimes that feeling of "flatness"can be because your dose is too high or you are on the wrong med.
