My psychiatrist recommended I start Methylphenidate SR as I do have concentration problems(I.E I can't even read a page of a book).
I'm scared to take it as I had bad experiences with pills before and I am scared of side effects or possible brain damage or anything at all.
Could anyone explain to me how safe it is to take it and how it could benefit me?
My girlfriend is a pharmacist and I can't even trust her haha
If you don't believe your gf why would you believe us? Its not going to cause brain damage, and you can stop it if you don't like the side effects. It might help your concentration. I don't see a downside. Take it when she is with you and you don't have to go anywhere, then you know you have help and if the first one makes you a little goofy it won't matter.
