Okay thanks again folks for replies. I live in Ireland. Unfortunately we dont have the same range of licenced medications here…as what are licenced in the states. I will definitely listen to those forums however. Navigating medication seems difficult. We are only on the 1st medicine however so I hope it’s worth sticking with it. If the short acting ritalin had had the same effect but for the whole day it would be great. I find it bizarre how ritalin LA can have such a vastly different result….I would have imagined that there were the same active ingredients in both forms of the tablet! Anyway we’ll continue to navigate this.
