Sorry Bulldog, I have no experience with the med but others do and I am sure they will be along soon.

Take care

Dear Quiet pain,

Ritalin is a central nervous system stimulant. It affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. Concerta is another brand name for Ritalin.

Ritalin is used to treat attention defecit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and narcolepsy.

Wellbutrin and Remeron are AD meds.  I am not sure if I missed something in your topic about Ritalin. Please expand a bit if you would not mind.  Thanks so much
Hugs
Kitt

Hi Bulldog,
 
My son is on Remeron for depression and to help him sleep - he takes Ritalin and needs the Remeron to help bring him down; otherwise he doesn't sleep.  We have had very good luck with this medication for him.
 
I have taken Wellbutrin in the past and had to come off it very quickly (less than a week) as I developed tremors.  This certainly is not the case with everyone, as everyone responds differently to to meds - this is just my personal experience.  I appear to be very susceptible to meds that may cause tremors because I am also having a problem with another med that has a more rare side effect of tremors.  I hope this info has helped and remember that the tremors were just my personal experience and doesn't happen to most people.  Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you since I didn't take it for very long.  I hope it works well for you.
 
Take care,
Wen
