    Ritalin for Depression; Adh syndrome

    Unfortunately, I am taking ADS and mild to severe depression, Cipralex. Cipralex helps against the depression quite well. For ADS I have received Strattera and Ritalin. Both do not help. Has anyone had the same experience and can recommend another medicine? greeting

    Side effects: No side effects

    Ritalin for Bipolar disorder; Depression

    Now I was so taken away on the Ritalin Seiter is nothing more. Ritalin and Valium were the ones that gave me the effective effect that helped me to daily life. Weiss does not continue at the moment. Who knows a good doctor of Ritalin prescribes Valium?

    Ritalin for Borderline; Ads / adh syndrome; Depression

    I am 25 years old and female. I got Ritalin in August 2016 against my persistent listlessness and extreme fatigue. The first 3 days with Ritalin were hell, so strong mood swings I never had. From pure aggression to suicidal behavior everything was there. After that my mood suddenly got better, I was almost euphoric. I felt neither tired nor impulsive, far from suicidal thoughts. It was great! I went out, started again with sports, met with people, even had the courage to address the man of my dreams (we have been together since October) The first side effects were relatively low, the loss of appetite was very convenient for me, because I have the Years of eating a lot of bacon. The dry mouth caused me to drink a lot of Wasset, which was also very positive. 7 Kg decreased within two and a half months, from 84 Kg to 77 Kg were the dry mucous membranes (vaginal dryness, burning eyes) The main side effect, why I no longer take the Ritalin, was / is the hair loss. I have naturally very fine blond hair and by the Ritalin I fell out incredibly many hairs. I’ve lost at least a third of my entire hair, my scalp is clearly visible at the top and top of my head, I was already addressed by family / friends and even my family doctor. This strains me a lot psychologically, as I have never been blessed with a dense, flowing mane. My best friend (she has ADHD) had also taken Ritalin and also had extreme hair loss. She was prescribed Medikinet, so it got better. If the hair loss was not, I would take it further, the positive effects, especially the no longer being tired were great. But I do not want to look like 25 after chemotherapy. Therefore, I recommend it only limited.

    Side effects: Mouth dryness

    Ritalin for Depression

    First of all, I would like to say that I have NEVER suffered from ADD Attentive Disorders – this medication is also given to adults who suffer from abnormal, excruciating fatigue. This is the case for me AND the ONLY drug, although 95% of doctors do not believe me, which helps against sadness and depression! I speak of experiences, because when I put it, the condition is quite miserable despite antidepressants. I take the Ritalin retard or Focalin, the latest version; the tiredness is blown away after half an hour and I get back joy of life and above all drive to do the job; usually I’m in such a bad mood in the morning that I’m unable to tackle anything or do not know what to do with everyday work – if this drug did not exist, I could NEVER work anymore, that’s how bad it would be. But beware! One can become dependent, i. you have to increase the amount more and more to have the effect in the longer term. I can easily on days where I do not have to work, suspend the drug, I still have so much discipline – and unlike antidepressants you do not have to start or stop creeping, you can settle from one day to the other and completely!

    Side effects: Dependence

    Ritalin for Depression; Adh syndrome

    At the beginning of taking 75 mg, I was very restless, feeling driven and had difficulty sleeping and mild constipation. During the first week of the 150 mg regimen, I developed a leaden fatigue, restlessness, irritability and severe headache, an emotional blunting. So far, constipation and headaches have remained, but these are improving. No weight gain! After over 30 years, the generalized fear has blown away and I am more resilient and attentive. In addition, even the smallest things that used to drive me out of my skin can now only shock me little or not at all. In my opinion, a really good drug, because of which benefits I like to accept the side effects. It should only creep slowly, first 75 mg and then go to 150 mg after a few weeks, if necessary. The side effects then endure for a few days, it’s worth it. In any case, Trevilor is the only one that has worked well with me, unlike cipramil and fluctin.
