Hi – welcome. I found it took me a while to ‘buy into it’ too. I have accepted it now and just get on with things. Less naval gazing than even a few weeks ago.

Interestingly, the change came when I started taking my Ritalin regularly – not sure which came first – a bit chicken and egg I suppose. Did finally accepting make me just take it daily, or did taking it daily help with acceptance?

Anyway, I take fast acting Ritalin and it lasts about 3 hours, although I notice the peak in that time. It suits me though at the moment.

I’d be interested to know how you get on with the xr. There are a few threads on the forum about Concerta that you might be interested in?
