I started on a very low dose of Ritalin when I first got the diagnosis. It was subtle, cause unlike stuff like Valium or whatever, it doesn’t dull the senses, it actually just sharpened them. I always say it was like the best cup of coffee ever. Without the tremor from the caffeine! Ha ha!
I kept waiting for my creativity to drop, (A big fear for a writer) but it never did. Or not that anyone around me noticed. I did however get more done.
What was cool, was that my Doctor said right at the start that I would be more productive, but that he wasn’t interested in simply making me an even more productive and busy worker bee. He wanted me to use the medication to be productive with my time at work so I would actually have more time with my kids, and friends and so on.
