when i was in highschool back in 1998. I was on Cylert(Pemoline) for ADD
I had run the gauntlet of the Ritalin family and the methylphenidate diriverative drugs that were available at that time.
Ritilan extended release
I was also placed on Effexor for panic attacks and depkote for mood swings .
of the ADD drugs Cylert was the only one that wasn’t giving me harsh ups and downs.
all the Ritalin dirivitives at the time .
would put me thru a roller coaster during the day and i never felt like i was hitting an even keel.
after a while I choose to self manage . but now that i’m 30.
i’m wondering if i should start researching the newer more updated rugs since ADD treatments have come a long way from my time of being treated like a second class citizen in highschool.
currently i am noticing some focus issues and although i’m pretty good at self managing.
I’m willing to explore treatment again. or at least go thru another diagnosis.REPORT ABUSEFebruary 26, 2011 at 4:55 am #101168

i’d definately at least go and talk to someone about doing it again- there are loads of good drugs around now- like straterra (which isn’t a stimulant) and new versions of drugs that break down more effectively as well- which might help avoid your rollercoaster stuff. can’t hurt to at least find out what your options are, right?REPORT ABUSEMarch 9, 2011 at 5:21 am #101169
