Ritalin anxiety side effect. Will it wear off?

few years ago, I was put on Ritalin and it made me very anxious. I will be going on them again next week and I was wondering will these side effects wear off?

Why not try an amphetamine?

Pending on were dug is from, amphetamines may not be available...

I know here in South Africa, Amphetamines are not available for example, for some reason a number of countries feel methylphenidate is okay but methamphetamine is not

Re: Ritalin anxiety side effect. Will it wear off?

Hey Dug, Did you discuss this w/ the prescriber and if so what did they tell you? Also, before you start, have a good talk w/ the prescriber about under what conditions you should discontinue use, and specific details on how YOU are to go about finding the dosing regimen that is RIGHT FOR YOU. Also, what latitude do you have in adjusting dosage and/or frequency. I also would suggest keeping a daily log of how well each symptom is addressed, side-effects, concerns, questions, your thoughts about next steps in your treatment. It should help to keep future appointments focused and productive for you. HTH, -LN
