I was prescribed this for a period of time and then there was some drug shortage and had to rotate between the numerous generics of Ritalin until it was available, some worked great and others were horrible and since generic focalin was approved under my insurance (TEVA 93 5277 10 mg white round pills) and my insurance has a mail order service and few people are on it so they have a rather abundant supply I switched back.
Well, just like every other ADHD medication, even switching brands of the same drug, there is a week or two period of forcing myself to consume smoothies and whatnot but it is going on three weeks now and while it is working great in every other way, I had to give up my annual P90x round before summer because I am so weak that four push ups is rough. I never had this issue before.
I have tried to lower the doses and it still made no difference. When I took Adderall, I never paid attention to the prolonged loss of appetite and ended up looking anorexic at one point but I am concerned with being healthy and in shape now and in 2005 when I was on Adderall, I chain-smoked, drank 15 cups of coffee per day and thought losing weight was a bonus.... before that I spent years going between Ritalin and Dexedrine and cheeked them after a few days because that is just what kids do. So that wasn't an issue then.
This is my main option because it doesn't stop working like the others do or make me delusional like Straterra, so how long should I hold off until before reporting this? My activity level is sedentary until this subsides, and since I am hyperactive, this isn't a problem for me... my list tasks that involve sitting still at a computer or organizing detailed budgets and shopping patiently are what these meds help with... when I wake up wound, I clean.
I am also tapering off of clonazepam after taking 2 mg per day for a few months after my mom died to deal with the outbursts and family members I have that declared war pin property so I understand that may be a factor as well. However, I am using Lemon Balm tea, skullcap and L-theanine and it has rid the issue of insomnia from that.
I also put adequate nutrients with hemp protein powder, fruits, vegetables as well as nutritional vitamin support and plenty of water and I nibble at things here and there but eating just doesn't appeal to me still.
Would a safe bet be to wait at least another week? considering Dexedrine took around a month or so for that side effect to go away because this does keep me rather stable and without it I would be wound up, argumentative, obnoxious, loud and immature and it took forever for me to accept taking this regularly recently because things "click" differently when it comes to maturity, sadly.
Thank You. (On a side note, the shortage in my area is due to the numerous colleges in my area and there are local news reports about the local university students bragging about taking a couple adderall and drinking double lattes and typing up 3 or 4 15 page research papers in a few hours and how everyone gets them, but even then nobody knows what focalin even is that take the others most often)
I am going to check to see if there was an inactive ingredient change that my body may be reacting to vs. the previous ones I received and do research into how the body metabolizes them or if there are effects from them.
I have a semester off to write a thesis for my undergraduate degree to become a drug counselor so while I am choking down vegan hemp protein shakes all day and receiving adequate nutrition, I am wondering if I am just overreacting to nothing. Should I report this to a doctor? I am keeping adequate nutrition to be sedentary so I am curious.
I apologize for the tangents.
