I take Methylin, Nortiplene for ADD and Concerta for a fast pulse.

I am planning to see my doctor in a few days and would like to know what other generic medication I can take for my add, because though I the Methylin does help me concentrate, I still get depressed and I would like to feel normal for once in my life.

Methylin and Concerta both contain methylphenidate as an active ingredient.

Your Dr prescribed Concerta for a fast pulse? I would love to learn more about why your Dr chose that.

Do you experience a paradoxical reaction to methylphenidate?

No sorry, I take Cartia XT ER CAP 240MG for my pulse.

(I guess I stayed up a little too late last night)

I understand. I know how it feels to miss out on sleep from new years. :o

I'm just glad to hear you're Dr didn't actually choose Concerta for rapid heart beat. :)

Peace, Lars

Did some digging around on Methyline and found that it can cause hallucinations.

Do you know if this is possible?

Yes, I believe it's possible, but I've never heard of it happening to anyone.

I would love to read more about what you were able to dig up, and I suspect others would too.

Could you send me some information on what you found, or post a link?
