Modern options?

I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age. I am now 20 years old. I was on Ritalin from age 5-8, I got off because it seemed to keep me up, suppress my appetite/personality? Anyone with the same symptoms from using Ritalin which is no longer presribed? Well that being said I am a big skeptic about getting on anything else. Is there anything out there that would benefit me without the said vices?


Also my friend who I have known since i was 5 now 20 as well, was diagnosed with Bipolarism. Has anyone heard stories similar, people being diagnosed with ADHD but either truly having BP or eventually developing it?
