I find this all really interesting. I thought I had ADD for a while. I have a lot of the personality traits without the attention problems. I took a trial dose of Ritilin once, and it was like it *gave* me ADD. Couldn't complete a thought, let alone a project. Thoughts were racing. Right now I'm on Wellbutrin. I wanted to use it for depression because the weight/sex/fatigue side effects aren't as bad as with the SSRIs. Man, I thought I was going to go insane for the first few days. Even that, was too much for me. I'm wondering, Libby, if you've ever taken Wellbutrin. Did that stuff make you calm and sleepy like the Dexedrine?


> Like Micheal said, I don't get high on Ritalin. For the first day, I was aware of "speeding." After that, the differences I observed were that the mental fog cleared, my sleep patterns became normal, my jangled nerves were soothed, and I lost my appetite (that one is a little hard to get used to).

'Course what I didn't consider when I jumped into this thread is that I am taking Ritalin for ADD, which means I really shouldn't say anything about it as monotherapy for depression. Sorry I missed that rather obvious point.
