Ritalin and Graduation

I went to my general practitioner today who handed me a prescription.

It's a low dosage. It's normal release (as opposed to an extended release version of some medications which change the requirement from twice to once a day.)

I know that many people have to experiment before they find the medication solution that works, but I can't deny that I'm hoping that this is the one, and that I don't have to go through some long arduous process. Either way, I'm going to look at what happens to me objectively, log my results here (starting next Monday), and try to figure out what the best solution for me is, which I hope might help guide other adults with the predominantly inattentive subtype.

Also, I graduate with my M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy on Sunday. Woot!


  1. Yay for graduation! Are you going to walk?

  2. Congratulations on the prescription, and congratulations on your graduation!
    Terrific news.
    Can't wait to read your results logging from the medication.

  3. P.S. I like the new template look to your blog!

  4. Bridget and Mungo: Thanks guys! I really appreciate it.

    Ashley: Thanks! I am going to walk ;-) I even bought the cap and gown after all.

  5. Congratulations on all your accomplishments!
