For reasons I wont go into, I am trying ritalin again. Ritalin, concerta, adderall, all are the stimulants used for ADD or ADHD.
Before, on the pills, the benefits on my ADD symptoms were clear but were counterbalanced by the side effects, so I stopped. This time, I am using the strip, so it is absorbed thru the skin, and I do not have the mild jitteriness or the mild stomach upset of the last time. I have better focus (even tho I lost my credit card again- see next post) more drive and motivation, and more energy. I am quite happy with them. The only down I notice is a little less ability to relax or settle down, which I didn’t have much of before.
I think the strips are expensive but my doctor had a card for a months free supply, and since I cut them and use one third a day, that’s three months. Then we’ll see.
