I've been on it for four years to help treat depression, and I am afraid it has gotten out of control.
Ritalin can become a drug which is abused. Like any amphetamine the body/brain becomes accustomed to the dopamine release. If you are taking more than prescribed and finding that you want to continuously take more, then it is time to seek help from the prescribing doctor. You may benefit from a conventional antidepressant and it maybe time to wean off the Ritalin. Time to investigate the options with the doc.
