... Well, at least you know the difference between addiction and dependancy. Lord, the doctors that told me I couldn't be in withdrawals because I wasn't addicted!!! Now, they surely can't be that dumb, they were all board-certified at a top establishment in our area. I think they either were that brain dead, or were given misleading info from drug reps, or simply in denial.... (149 replies)

Ritalin Question
Feb 6, 2003

... ravyla, You got lots of good advice from previous posts. Many ADHDers have found Strattera very helpful. Side effects are bad for the first few weeks then subside.

... I just wanted to comment that Neither drug is a Generic - the actual "generic" name of the drug they both contain is Methylphenidate- which is the same component of Ritalin. The difference in these medications is how it is delivered (capsule vs tablet) and how it is absorbed into the body. They are both time released medications, however Metadate delivers an initial...
