    When I was 20 years old my mother confessed that she traded sex with my doctor and pharmacist to keep my brother and i on Ritalin for 10 years. Checking the "Big Pill Book" I discovered that the three of them illegally kept me on it at 3 times the legal adult dose. I am now in my 50s and have had debilitating exhaustion most of my life. My Thyroid count (which ought to be 100) is ZERO. It produces nothing, yet doctors find this result in a male so unusual that they refuse to treat it. The ten years that I was on Ritalin are a vague and fuzzy memory. I was NEVER hyperactive, if anything I was a rather withdrawn child who'e constant leg pains cut play time by half. If my doctor and pharmacist still lived, I would hunt them down.

    Hi there. Just started on wellbutrin xl
    300mg and biphentin 40mg together.
    I have been on the Wellbutrin for several months and had then tried 40mg of vyvanse with it. I had tried vyvanse before and it certainly made me more productive for part of the day but the side effects, excessive
    teeth clenching and grinding and
    abnormal mouth movements (tics) made me try the biphentin. So far I haven't noticed any side effects from the biphentin but not as dramatic a lift as with vyvanse. However it's only been a few days with the biphentin/wellbutrin
    combination so fingets crossed !!!

    I have been a Ritalin user for over 40 years. Recently I traveled to Haiti to build a school in the remote village of Platon Robert, I was there for 40 days and 40 nights, until I returned to the US to celebrate the holiday 4/20. Unfortunately I was unable to celebrate because that same day I received the horrible self-diagnosis that I had contracted Dengue Fever. I should also mention that my ADD is both self diagnosed and self prescribed, as well as my Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

    I'm 23 years and I have had vitiligo since I was 9 years old. I started taking Ritalin at the age of 19 when I was diagnosed with ADHD however I have not seen any aggravation during this time. It's remained in its place. I started smoking at 22 last year and just last week I noticed a new patch on my face. It is quite dim but I fear my vitiligo is being aggravated. What could be happening? What is causing this?
