I am glad to see that your are doing well regardless of Ritalin or not... It's clear that it doesn't kill everybody and that's a good thing

I was diagnosed ADD about 15 yrs ago (47 now). It explains many things and struggles I had in middle, High School and college. Like reading, then having no clue what I read, and would have to read over few more times. I guess this is why I did my best studying in the library and alone with out distractions.

I take ritilan which has made a tremendous benefit to concentrate and focus and my task completion and more. I hear, see, feel everything which it is very hard to block out anything around me while I am working or whatever. Talk about multi-tasking!

I agree that you don't throw drugs first at any symptom or issue(I am anti- Pharma) without doing your home work.

Diet and excercise first.

I have spoken to people that were possibly diagnosed ADHD, ADD, whatever, and when they took ritilan, it made them nuts, really buzzed, ( I will use the Cocaine example also) and high!? If this is the effect, Ritilan is NOT the script you should be taking, which you (almost 100% sure) you are not ADD or ADHD!

I also would fight tooth and nail before giving children any drugs without looking at the situation very carefully to try to find the true source or cause of behavior first.
