I am 18 years old I have had ADD all my life. I have always thought I was different because I can get out of control and can't focus. I feel like Ritalin has helped me focus and I feel more motivated at times to do my school work. I am a freshman in college. The side affects are I am moody at times, like I get mad I guess if that makes sense like I'm grouchy, and I get bad headaches and dry mouth. But I keep myself hydrated all I drink is water, I don't drink caffeine because it makes it worse
