I started Methylphenidate last week. I'm taking it to treat my depression. This past week I've had headaches come and go, jaw pain, and I get really nauseous at random times. I know this drug causes weight loss but I don't know if nearly vomiting every time I eat or even think about eating is normal. Has anyone else experienced something like this?
It is not an antidepressant. I don't see it treating it. Why did your dr order a controlled drug for depression? I'd tell the dr I wanted off the stuff and onto a real drug for depression. This drug is addicting.
I recently started taking Ritalin (for depression related fatigue). I didn't notice any side effects the first few weeks. Then all of a sudden I began having random bouts of severe
nausea... yesterday I puked on and off for several hours. I plan on calling my Psych doc this morning.
