Ritalin Reviews

Show: for
Working / Worked
Worked well for me a few years before I got switched to Adderall, but I was at a very high dose (80 mg/day). With quick-release version I had rapid heartbeat, dry mouth, but I was focused. However, only tried that initially, then went to extended release. From that I got a slight 45 minutes of euphoria after about a half hour of taking (which I miss), but that leveled off until about 8 hours after last dose, when I had a 45 minute "zombie" period.
