Below you will find more information about Ritalin
What is Ritalin?
Ritalin is originally a medicine that is used to treat and support people with AD(H)D concentration disorder. The active substance Methylenidate ensures that the user gets less distracted from both internal and external stimuli. This makes it possible to achieve a much deeper and stronger concentration. It also gives the user mental energy so that he can focus for a longer period of time without getting tired. In addition, Ritalin provides additional available dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that gives a nice and satisfied feeling. This ensures that the user experiences pleasure in what he chooses to be doing at that time. That is why this medicine has proven to be very effective for treating and supporting people with AD(H)D concentration disorder.
However, people who do not have this concentration disorder also benefit from Ritalin. Not only students but also doctors as well as lawyers, chefs, IT professionals, security officers, traders (and many others) use this medicine. The reason for this is that Ritalin helps them during their work or study to focus optimally for a long period of time. Doctors sometimes make working days of more than 12 hours. Students sometimes study through the entire night. Ritalin helps them with this. You do not have to suffer from a concentration disorder to experience the symptoms of those disorders, because everyone sometimes experiences these. What if you experience these at a critical moment? Ritalin is the perfect tool for this. You will eventually have to do it yourself, but with a tool like Ritalin many things are possible. You get the full hundred percent out of yourself and are thus able to deliver good work, for hours. By making optimal use of your time, you also have more time to relax afterwards. Something that is becoming increasingly scarce in this society.
How to use Ritalin
It is best to use Ritalin in the morning or early in the afternoon. The medicine has more effect in the morning hours. For the best effect, it is wise to eat before you take your Ritalin. It is important to pay attention to your sugar intake. It is better to not consume sugar at all, since this has a negative effect on the effectiveness of the medicine. Sugar decreases the effect of Ritalin. The same goes for vitamin C! The use of Ritalin can slightly suppress appetite during use. Long-term use of Ritalin is often also accompanied by light to moderate weight loss. By eating well in advance (and during), you increase the effectiveness of the medicine, giving you a better concentration and minimizing any side effects. Drinking enough water is also very important.
Ritalin is a medicine whose effect actually gets better over time. The body gets an increasingly better tolerance for possible side effects, while the effect on the concentration remains virtually the same. Some people experience stomach complaints or feelings of restlessness at the beginning, these side effects gradually decrease over time. Most people are not bothered by this from the start. Sometimes the reason for the restlessness may also be related to the fact that you have been in the same position for too long. Because of the medicine, you do not realize that you have been working non-stop for 3 hours straight. By occasionally stretching your legs every now and then you can easily get rid of those feelings.
On average, one Ritalin tablet works for approximately four hours. It is recommended that you keep track of when you have taken your Ritalin. That way you can time when you can take another tablet, if you wish. If you accidentally take two tablets in a very short time, that’s fine. However, this may cause your concentration to temporarily deteriorate. Unless you have built up a tolerance for the medicine and you actually need more! If you use this medicine every day and you want to stop taking it, it is wise not to do this at once. By steadily phasing out this medicine you will not be bothered by the possible withdrawal symptoms that may occur.
