Hey there, I take Ritian as well. I’m suppose to take 40 mg per day. I think it effects everyone differently. I’ve never experienced headaches, dizziness etc but for me it puts me on an emotion roller coaster. I go from feeling extreme happiness and confident to sucidial in the course of about 3 hours. For that reason I hate Ritlian. With that being said, I’ve tried several other adhd meds and Ritalin is most effect. So perhaps talk to your doc, to see if he/she has any suggestions. Hope that helps

Were u on the short release or long release one as in how many times didbu have to take it per day?


I’m an currently on 20 mg /twice per day short release.


Ritalin is an antiquated drug that has way too many side effects. It ruined a year of my life. Most doctors in the US are getting their patients off Ritalin and onto Vyvanse XR. Do your research. Trust me, the difference is huge.


I will look into it bc I hate ritlian!!!!


the thing is i dont think we have it in Europe i live in Hungary i don't believe they heard of it :( i will try to talk to my doctor about it
