it's unfortunate that americans seemed to develop a fear of stimulants, just as we seem to have an odd aversion to using marijuana as a prescribed medication. the media, of course, had a great deal to do with the "Ritalin Scare" - blowing its addictive qualities and overuse out of proportion.

I'm very happy to hear that it has helped your daughter. Esp. at her age, I can't imagine why it shouldn't be tried, though I'm sure some would still disagree.

Just the fact that she was frustrated about not being able to concentrate shows there was a problem with her "circuits", not a lack of interest.

Good news. It's helping me as well, though I'm having a few side effects and this dosing thing... good suggestion re: the regular Ritalin. I had two 5 mg left over and actually thought to try that yesterday evening - it worked. That might be the solution...
