Thanks for your reply. The majority of reviews I have read and heard ( first-hand ) favour Dex, some slightly, some by quite a margin.
I have inattentive type ADHD, if that makes a difference. My addiction potential is towards zero, I guess ( never smoked, never “drank”,
my setup has been one or two alcoholic drinks per month, and that for two decades now or so. Not much before then, either ).

I’ll check with her, thanks. When reading the Wiki pages ( and others ), I find it quite hard to figure out which one is more dangerous.

However, the contraindication paragraph for Dex is a lot longer than for Ritalin, which does raise alarm bells for me.

Many thanks for your input!
