Ritalin makes me mean

hi guys,

I got a script for ritalin ir and sa. Interestingly they feel different from one another.

Anyway, I started noticing that I am mean to others when I am on one type of ritalin. I am not alert or focused, but I am just mean. Very easily irritated. I yelled at my friend because she was 8 minutes late. And I am not even close to her. I apologized later but this is weird and unacceptable behavior.

Any inputs?

Some people don't do well on the methlyphenidate class of drugs and do much better with amphetamines.

Re: Ritalin makes me mean

Eh - on ADD meds I got up and said that one of my best friends was a horrible person at his funeral.

I mean - it was true - but...well not really a good thing.

I do much better with a change of meds, as long as I am not wearing off them for the night... then I am much worse.

But I'm naturally a pretty big *******.

I tried most of meds. Adderall gave me too much pns problems. I am just guessing it's brand issue? it's frustrating.

Re: Ritalin makes me mean

You failed to mention which type of Ritalin makes you feel what? Im on IR building up a tolerance so that I can go on SR? Im interested to know the difference, IR im fine so far, although im much clearer with my thoughts which i guess makes me more direct I never intend to be mean but direct can be mistaken for mean, I havent experienced this, being so confused for so long i find it a relief to be sure and clear about my thoughts

Re: Ritalin makes me mean

it was Methylin ER that made me super mean. I was okay with Watson IR. Thankfully I had an appt with my doc again and she gave me another script for ritalin and focalin to try out.
