I was diagnosed with this several years ago. I have been taking Ritalin as prescribed and it has helped considerably. It has really made a difference in my life.

Could you explain how it’s made a difference to you and if you’d tried anything else previously?

I hadn’t tried anything before starting the Ritain. It took some time and adjustments to the dosage for me to feel better without getting jittery or hyper. I take a combination of dosages including extended release throughout the day. The biggest difference I have felt is that I’m not exhausted just trying to drag myself through the day anymore. I still get tired if I haven’t gotten enough sleep but it is not the all consuming exhaustion that I had been battling.
