Our expert says:
Sounds awfully alarming and unpleasant. I wonder whether you are being treated by a proper spealist psychiatrist, or a GP. IF the latter, then do see a psychiatrist ( or another, as a second opinion ) for a thorough re-assessment of diagnosis and your present state. It may well be you don't need Ritalin at all, and that some other treatment, maybe even a non-drug treatment like CBT, could help you more.
IF you want to also report this to Novartis ( though taking the best available cae of yourself should o course be the first step ) you can check their local SA adress on the internet through Google, and should be able to send then an e-mail discussing your experience. Similarly, your new psychiatrist could make such a report, too or instead of yours, as he/she could do so in more technizal terms
