I forgot to ask this question when I 1st posted on"stopping suboxone"I am on Ritalin 36.mg E.R. I only take it when I have work or study.I have been diagnosed 3 times,so I am pretty sure I am.:pretty sure"! God knows what I could have been dx with when I was active.I am a firm believer of no dx until we are free of mind altering substances.I'm thinking that taking my ritalin if I am able to work during my wd is a big mistake.I am a nurse and without it I am a scatter brain,my work gets done..but never in the allotted time.Any views or experiences on this? If caffeine is a no- no than I'm thinking hell no re: the ritalin.It may sound silly but at one time I thought I had all the answers and I ended up on my a..!I was told by my sponsor to ask questions of those who came before me...make my self teachable again and humble.

You bring up a very interesting point. If a person without ADD/ADHD were to take Ritalin, it would act like a stimulant and would probably be a no-no while in opiate w/d. But if you are indeed ADD/ADHD, doesn't it actually do the opposite and calm you down? How do you feel when you take it? Other than being able to concentrate/focus better, does it actually slow you down or hype you up? If I were you I'd ask my sub doctor about it. It might actually be something you should continue to take, but I suppose that would depend on if you actually ARE ADD or ADHD.

Those are just my thoughts on the subject. Again, it's an interesting question you bring up.
