Starting Ritalin

Hey everyone, just a bit of curiousity..
Just started Ritalin well actually the generic Methylphenidate 10mg twice daily.
Been on adderall for a bit, loved the 10mg but it stopped working and was switched to 20mg but too many bad side effects.

So im on day 3 with methlyphenidate 10mg and i dont feel a thing.
My dr warned me it may not help my ADD at first because of the small dose but the purpose for now is to just get it in my system and see any side effects.

I feel completely normal, no side effects at all and still have ADD symptoms.

Only curious becuase i was reading the forums and i see people taking the same dose and describing euphoria, extreme concentrating, and tiredness.
I dont feel any different though, any thoughts?

Just my own personal experience, generic Ritalin is bunk.

Really? I was told some actually prefer the generic over brand.

Everyone is different when it comes to meds.

Re: Starting Ritalin

I think it's a dose issue. 10mg is low and certainly won't do much if you only take it once a day.
