  • Eat protein before you take this to ensure your body has the fuel it needs considering your appetite will decrease. Son has no sleep problems and is very tall for his age. Does not take when out of school. The therapy he receives helps too.

  • If you have any heart problems, they will become more prominent. My heart palpitations increase significantly when taking Ritalin, which I hate.

  • Can't take naps while on it. Decreased hunger so when it wears off in the evening you can be more hungry than you were for lunch.

    Chronic fatigue
  • You need to take it early, with food. I find for best effect, take it as soon as you wake up, quickly followed by a breakfast with slow digesting carbohydrates, such as porridge, cereals or toast. It helps it release into the body gently

  • Try Concerta (24h Ritalin) and/or Provigil and/or Vivance instead

    Narcolepsy
  • I feel it works much better when I practice my sport(running) routine. before precription I couldn't do anything and needed to sleep during the day. now I can handle all papers, letters and manage to DO anything planned. I've been on Methyphe. for about 3 months.
  • Watch out for headaches. Ibuprofen and/or ice pack can help.
