I'm sure you are far more tired of having your problems than any of us. What gets me tired is when people bring a problem, I give them my best advice ( maybe brilliant, maybe not, but anyway the best I can manage ) and they don't take the advice ( which is their absolute right ) and then bring the problem back - I have nothing more to give, however much I'd like to help even more.
I haven't heard of Ritalin having the sort of effect you describe, which I'm sure must be very unpleasant. It does sound rather like a panic atack with background anxiety, and maybe it was a coincidence that it happend after you took the Ritali n you were used to. I have known cases where someone had their first panic attack when something else, actually coincidental was happening, and assumed that the panic was CAUSED by whatever happend. And then if one grows extra anxioys the next time that thing happens, this would increase the chance of having another panic attack then, too.
CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy )style counselling can help one to gain control over one's feelings of anxiety and to stop such attacks of anxiety. It is a method that is logical and in which you are actively involved in finding and pratising solutions.
Don't take the books too seriously - they are written by people who say they want to help you, but who actually write them to make money - and if they said everything was fine and you needed nothing other than what the doctor recommends - such books might be accurate but wouldn't sell so well. I don't respect these authors who tell people what they want to hear, rather than telling the truth.
