Taking stimulants has helped me much,


Recommended Posts

I am a schizophrenic, since being treated with a stimulant, ritalin, I have been able to quit smoking, work and go to school full time (Which is too much for me, I am going to quit working so much) and get good grades, and I read and excercise and cook, ritalin has turned me into an outgoing person.  I also take risperdal consta 35mg and neurontin 300 4x a day. 

I take concerta 56mg and ritalin 10mg prn.  I have been taking this since june and it has not triggered any kind of psychotic thoughts.  Without ritalin negative symptoms own me.

Kevin,

Congrats, it sounds like things are going so well for you! As you said, you may not want to overdue it be sure to leave yourself some down time so stress doesn't get overwhelming.

Glad the ritalin has helped you so much.

I think that sometimes I do have bizarre thoughts...  I do a good job of just identifying them as irrational and just disgarding them.  I don't take them seriously like I used to.  But now, I feel more delusional if I skip my ritalin.  I'm probably addicted to it!
