My dh is considering Ritalin to help with his inability to concentrate and stay on task. He is a classic case of ADD/ADHD and scores really high on all of the tests. He is very functional and successful, but he is under an extreme amount of stress and is having difficulity balancing everything, especially with his job. One major factor is that he is used to excercising for several hours a day (played sports all through childhood-college, worked outside in an active environment until just this year). He is working in an office for the first time and even though he goes to the gym a few times a week, he is really experiencing a lot of difficulty and it is making us all miserable. We already do the Feingold program, our diet is based on whole organic foods cooked from scratch - we don't eat any additives at all. Any other suggestions? Is ritalin really harmful in this type of situation? Do you have to take it all the time or can you just take it as needed? I know he needs to exercise more, but he already works a 10 hour day and when he gets home we need his help! I don't think we can spare more than 1-2 hours a day (maybe more on weekends). He can't bike or walk to work. Any ideas?
