Ritalin

Hello :-)

Has anyone here been prescribed Ritalin for Fibromyalgia or depression & if so how long does it take for side effects to subside??

Hello!
Ritalin is a mild central nervous system stimulant. It should be used with caution especially in those with glaucoma, angina, heart failure, heart rhythm disorder, recent heart attack ,overactive thyroid, severe high blood pressure, tics or Tourette's syndrome, , a hereditary condition such as fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption, or sucrase-isomaltase deficiency, or severe anxiety, tension etc.What are the symptoms you have been experiencing? It would have been really helpful if you had written details about your side effects. Discuss your concerns with your doctor who prescribed this to you and get your doubts clarified. Do keep us posted.
Best wishes!
