I'm on 10mg of Ritalin 3x a day for treatment resistant depression and it's just making me sleep all day. Has any one else had that experience? Is the dose too low ? I've tried every antidepressant, mood stabiliser there is over the last 20 years . I've only been on it 3 days, does it take time to work? I thought it worked like an amphetamine and worked within 1-2 hours?
How was your sleep before taking ritalin? It does make some people tired, I know that sounds weird but it does, it could be an interaction with another med, do the add your drugs list on this site, it will bring up any interactions
The ritalin should start working in 1/2 hr or less, more so if you ate before taking it,
Take your bp when you have the sleepiness, call your doc also regarding this med
