Micheal... I don't take Ritalin for the calming effect per se because I don't have classic hyperactivity. I do tend to get agitated when I
become overwhelmed and have had constant problems with low-grade anxiety over nothing in particular.
I also have a severe *measured* attention deficit and dyslexia. In my previous job, which was very fast-paced and creative, I did well. However, in my new job, which requires a more *consistent* effort and attention to details, I found I couldn't function at all without Ritalin.

I took Wellbutrin as an AD during one of several "depressive episodes" and did extremely well on it until it mysteriously pooped out. As I recall, it left me feeling a lot like the Ritalin does... energetic, but not agitated and mentally clear. I liked it well enough that I am going to request it if I ever need another AD.

I never got sleepy with Wellbutrin, but I never experimented with the dose. I started at the lowest dose and stayed there. With Ritalin, my doc suggested taking the higher dose just once, to see if I could get even more improvement, but since the higher dose put me to sleep, we stuck with the low dose.
