used Concerta, aderall, methylphenidate since diagnosed 15 yrs. ago. developed "mastication disorder" jaw muscles became so weak over time I couldn't chew meat, vegetables, apples... Titrated off methylphenidate and could barely do my work. My house is piled high with unfinished projects. Doctor has me trying Buproprion XL (aka Wellbutrin) It's not a stimulant. So far, ok.
A research paper on a health site said that less than 1% of stimulant users developed this side effect and most of them were middle-aged women. My psychiatrist never ran across it but my orthodontist knew of some cases.
Not enough info for older women yet. Hoping and hoping Buproprion XL helps me. Anyone using it who can give me feedback?
