Ritalin is a steroid, it will cause your heart to race. Caffeine should be avoided and also Green teas, even if they are Caffeine free. Odd though! Do you have an anxiety disorder as well? Or is it just depression? Curious because that is a horrible idea to put someone with Anxiety on a stimulant.

   No ritalin is not a steroid.  Its easy to google it and see that.  
If you do have ADHD, then the caffine should not be a problem, but that is really something that you want to talk over with your doctor.

Maybe I'm getting Adderall (adderrall) and Ritalin confused then. Could have sworn I lost all motivation for life on Adderall (adderrall) and became even more hyper on Ritalin. Did I mention I'm dyslexic? But no Sandman is right.
