Ritalin effect immune system?
May 19, 2019 - 6:10 AM - by NotSureYet
Hi, I have taken Ritalin for a little under a year. It has helped a lot ! I have also found, however, that I have been more frequently sick than in the past. I had flu twice last winter, have already had it this winter, and feel like it takes me longer to get over sickness than it was in the past. Could Ritalin be having an impact on my immune system? I take it as prescribed and don't take it on weekends, so abuse isn't an issue.

short term focus on a subject matter, weeks to months
May 18, 2019 - 6:05 PM - by horsebattery
Iím trying to figure out all the language I need to communicate this issue. Often it seems to be just a matter of accuracy relaying a feeling to get the right answer.

I switch between related and unrelated topics at fairly regular intervals. Iíll dive deep into something and then hit some kind of barrier. Shortly after I get to that point Iíll pretty much drop it all together. For me itís often money. Iíve set rules that I want to do and learn fun stuff for free. Free hobbies.... [Read More]

"This is my mother, That is my Father sitting at the the table, I want to be a Father just like my Father but to be a Better Man than Him" ever sense it's like a lightbulb, a bridge in my mind lit up and arouse at the same time.,...

I need help! My son is driving me bonkers
May 17, 2019 - 4:58 PM - by BuckisMunz
I have ADHD myself, my son has ADHD himself...

As I'm sure you can already see where I'm about to go. Please know I love my son very very much. My heart actually aches for him.

With that said though, I'd like to throw him in a padded room and beat him up with soft fluffy pillows. wait, he'd probably love that! You get what I mean though.

in the past 2 weeks, he's gotten 2-3 referrals at school. Of which he's actually been doing pretty good in. ... [Read More]

Newly Diagnosed in Middle Age -- Ritalin Dosing
May 16, 2019 - 7:48 PM - by KirkMustaine
Hi all,
I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and Anxiety (well, I've actually already been medicating the Anxiety part, currently with Escitalopram), and my provider started me on Ritalin.
She had me start with 5mgs, and then add more for subsequent doses as needed.
I thought I noticed *some* effects on even the smallest dose, but I was pretty 'on edge' and I didn't *feel* more clarity like I've seen some ppl report.
With each increase in dosage, I felt more calm (this is... [Read More]
