ritalin trial to counteract depakote side effects

Posted by Krazy Kat on May 6, 2002, at 14:07:17

i loved mouse's keppra journal she kept together for everyone. i wish i had done that for depakote.

i thought i would do that for my experience with ritalin:

Ritalin versus Provigil (for me):

only day two of taking 10 mg ritalin, 5 in the morning, 5 in the afternoon.

this is to counteract side effects from depakote - lack of energy, ability to focus, lack of motivation (my guess is this is also a personal issue), flatness or anhedonia (loss of interest in activities, but not depression).

none of the side effects i experienced with provigil, the first stimulant i tried. those side effect were:

bitchiness/irritability (really)

anxiety/small panic attacks (for instance Mark told me i had stepped on a jelly fish and i freaked - that is not like me).

loud noises causing jumpiness

racing heart

provigil is actually supposed to be "milder" than ritalin, but it's bizarre how different people react to different meds.

i believe ritalin can easily be raised to 20 mg a day and more but am not certain.

it is Controlled.
