Just wondering about asking my doctor that being stable for about a year on antipsychotics if this would be a choice to go on ritalin low dose for me? Anyone else get prescribed ritalin?
I haven’t. My doctor almost gave Adderall to me in the hospital but I got paranoid. She won’t give it to me except for a short amount of time because she said I would eventually get paranoid. I wasn’t even stable at the time lol.
Is there a reason you want Ritalin over Adderall? I thought Adderall is better.
Probably a bad idea…
"Methylphenidate caused a significant increase in positive symptoms that was relatively specific to the schizophrenic patients and was evident even in those with otherwise dormant symptomatology. "
I take adderall. It helps my Irritable mood. I used to get so angry I would throw things at people. The adderall has calmed me so much. I trust my doc knows what she’s doing. It works for me, but that’s just my personal experience.
Thanks for your responses. It looks like adderall might be the better choice here.
