You are anti - stims

New studies show that it MIGHT continue, not that it compulsory to do so ; and Ritalin is not the only treatment found effective in treating it, especially if someone is showing significant problems arising from Ritalin use. And responses to drugs are often different in adults compared with children.
If your psychiatrist has carefully assessed you and evaluated available options, and considers Ritalin your best option, that would of course be well worth trying.
