Those Happily on Ritalin

Who's happily medicated on Ritalin? How long have you been consistently using and how does your dosing regime look? Additionally, what effects do you note, positive or negative after time? I'm mildly curious..

Re: Those Happily on Ritalin

30-50 mg daily for 10 years now. Always kept it neat and tidy with Ritalin. It's basically in the background now. I don't even think about it but hardly dependent. I can quit cold turkey and not experience any rebound depression, and my crashing is helped by diet and exercise. I typically used to crash around 5pm, but with 40-50mg daily that can be anywhere between 10PM and 1PM. I'm happy with that and with what Ritalin provides me with; a tool to work with myself.

Downsides: slight anxiety that I've actually extinguished consciously by becoming calmer, some lack of sleep in the first few years, loss of appetite.o

If you're feeling overly curious perhaps you should try it.

Hey thanks.

Do you find it has any effect on your mood at this point? Also, are you taking any other medications in conjunction?

Thank you again!
