Straterra - Back to Ritalin SR for me

After a month on Straterra (80 mg/day) I'm finally going back to Ritalin SR.

Straterra actually improved my concentration & motivation. I found it much easier to follow through on small tasks. It also made me feel more clear-headed & totally eliminated what I called the "roller coaster effect" that I got with Ritalin (the constant ramping up, crashing, then ramping up, crashing, stc.) that I got from having to take Ritalin 3-4 times a day.

HOWEVER, the Straterra worsened my impulsivity so much my own family couldn't stand me. My daughter moved back in with her dad for awhile it was so bad. I couldn't work because I'd get dragged off track doing everything BUT what I needed to be doing.

After one day off the Straterra and on the Ritalin I feel better already. No irresistable impulses of any kind so far. Just a nice normal day. So hopefully I can actually go back to work again tomorrow.
