Hi all…… yes Ritalin skull cramps (head ache)…. it used to happen to me periodically…… not every day but often enough that I would carry or have head ache meds in my office….always. They are also hard on the tummy.
The upset stomach….. yes from time to time, coffee makes it worse, much worse as do acidic soda pops and junk like that. Mild bland foods, healthy stuff seem to be fine…… fast food can be killer… too much junk in it. I found non-acidic fruit & vegis and whole grain breads (sandwich stuff) to be very easy on the stomach and yummy too!! Smoking is also hard on the (my) stomach….. mixed with coffee and Ritalin I found it was a recipe for stomach upset…nice….self induced!!!. I’m not preaching here…..just giving up my experience with Ritalin….do what the hell you want. However…I would strongly suggest staying on top of this with your Doc…….. phone tell him/her what is happening, don’t hesitate.
Side note….. if you eat small amounts of natural foods all day you will help avoid “high and crash”… “high and crash”, that a lot of junk food and empty carb foods cause. All true…… ask your Doc.
I like to treat myself very well……eat very well.. I exercise at lot…..it’s all part of a multi-point effort……at wellness. I find the better I treat myself, the better my life seems to flow???? Remember…meds are just an assist….
