I can understand your frustration at being mae to take Ritalin. Try talking to your parents about how it makes you feel. My son took it for almost a year and we found that it didn't work and made him feel bad and violent. His current psychologist has given him Anti-depressants that seem to be working better. If all else fails, go to your doctor.
Hi! Talk to your parents and doctor about how you feel when you're on Ritalin. There are many meds out there for ADHD. It's very possible that Ritalin is not the one for you... or maybe you need another med to take along with the Ritalin. There's Adderall, Dexedrine, Cylert (Cylert gave me "road rage"), Prozac, Wellbutrin, etc...My doctor, currently, has me taking Adderall, Prozac, and Wellbutrin for my ADHD. (Too bad I don't have someone reminding me when to take my meds... because I'm always forgetting to take them).Anyway, hang in there, and make sure you let your parents and doctor know what you're going through. You're not destined to remain angry!Pudntanehttp://GMPalchemy.tripod.com/
WHy are they making you take Ritalin if you dont need it?!?!? i never had this particualr problem but i do no that when parents have there mind set about something no matter what they dont listen to the kid, no matter how old you are! You should atleast convince them to let you get tested to see if you actaully do need it or not. And if it turns out that you actaully do need it although you dont understand why then try and be content with it... anger will bring you no where.
ps. I'm not sure exacty how the Ritalin is making oyu anger, but maybe its not the drug, its juss you being mad for your parents making you take it (or was that what you meant? sorry its almost 3am and i'm tired lol)
