For me, most of the time, ethylphenidate (almost exactly the same as methylphenidate) did not provoke OCD symptoms, but on occasion, it gave me pretty much the only OCD behaviour I've experienced in life. So, yes, they can, but usually don't. Obviously, some people are particularly sensitive to this effect.

Yeah, that apathy is a pain in the *ss. I had extreme apathy on Sertraline, but doing fairly well on 7.5mg Escitalopram.
