Hello, I have been on an IR methylphenidate rubifen (same as Ritalin I guess?), 10mg 3x per day for a month and it’s been amazing. My mood, focus and sensory sensitivity all immediately improved so much.
Then my psychiatrist suggested trying Ritalin LA 30mg because it might be more convenient than having to time the doses perfectly myself. However it’s been 2 days and I’m not feeling great. My heart rate has shot right up and stays that way for most of the day. It’s really uncomfortable, and I’ve been kinda anxious. The crash at ~6pm was also weirdly worse.
I don’t get why though, because it’s the same drug right?? Has anyone else experienced this? I will talk to my psychiatrist but I’m worried she won’t believe me?
Thanks in advance 🙂
