*Attention, Attention*... " Now boarding for..Rebound Hell.."

Ritalin 15 mg 2x day Fast Acting.

Exactly 2.5 hours later = Rebound hell. What's that like?

You know you are in Rebound Hell, when you get....
cranky,
tired,
sometimes headaches,
complete dis-interest in everything,
boredom,
restlessness,
a drained feeling,
anti-social
Slight sadness, overwhelmed feelings.

Solutions...
Take more Ritalin. (That would mean taking it at 2.5 hours instead of the recommended 4.)
Dont take it at all.

Open to suggestions....... This Rebound Hell appears while I am STILL in class, which has created problems for me.

I cant/wont be able to see my pyschiatrist for another couple weeks, and will HAVE to miss school, which I really dont want to do.

So, I wont be able to ask for a different med untill then.... just looking for a fix for now, untill, I can see him again.

Try the long acting... I take long acting in the morning and short acting at night... I can really tell the difference in the two...

Uh and if I would have finished what you wrote I would have seem that you can't get anything fixed right away. Sorry about that.
