> ritalin my friend

Yes of course.

Alas, Ritalin and concerta are approved in France only for ADHD. But it's a long quest to be diagnosticated as ADHD. Many think it's an imaginary desease. ADHD specialists are few. Hyperactives childs are underdiagnosticated. Those with inatentive type or adults are more heavily underdiagnosticated.
Ritalin and Concerta are very controlled substances. A prescription for it can only be made by an hospital specialist. My MD is not allowed to prescribe it to me.
It will take perhaps some years before I have acccess to Ritalin or Concerta.
So for present an antidepressant acting on norepinerphine is the best I can obtain (among them reboxetine and strattera are not available, nor bupropion). But what are the pro and con for the three available here ?
