RITALIN-SR: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For ADHD “I used to be on SR then was switched to immediate release which made such a difference, now I’m stuck back on SR, they aren’t effective at all, it bothers my stomach and now I feel depressed and wondering how I’m going to get thru work”

For ADHD “Updated since my last report. I tried 1-20mg & 1- 10mg; 4 hours later 1-20mg; 4 hours later 1-10mg. Been trying this for a couple weeks & so far it is working fine, from the time I wake up till the time I hit the hay.”

For ADHD “Our son is 11 yrs old. He is ADHD/non-specific mood disorder. He has been on numerous medication. The last 2 years we have had him on only Abilify and Tenex. We decided at the end of the school year that we would remove all medicines and start fresh because we felt that the medicines were NOT working any longer and puberty was showing it’s ugly face. We started Ritalin SR 3 weeks after he stopped getting other medicines. Within 24 hours he had a face tic, 36 hours he could not sit for long periods of time. 48 hours we knew he needed to be removed. We could barely understand him talking, he made us crazy because he could NOT stop moving. He did not feel it, he does not understand that the things he was doing was not “normal” for him. “

For Narcolepsy “I didn’t give this a 10 simply because I don’t feel it last as long as it should. However, during the time I do take it, it’s great. Wide awake without being jittery. Good stuff.”
