I don't think you will need one. Most people take stimulants for autism as well. Some drugs for ADHD will work for those on the spectrum as well. Mainly because both ADHD and Autism are nearly the same, except for the fact that ADHD isn't on the spectrum. They are usually used for controlling hyper...

I started-out, when I was diagnosed as an adult with ADHD, on Cylert----it was WONDERFUL!! ! They discontinued it in the U.S. Then, I took Concerta; then, when it was discontinued at my Pharmacy, I took Adderall; then, Ritalin. ALL of the last three drugs made me EXTREMELY ANGRY----like I could PUN...

All stimulants you take will. I'd start with ritalin first though. Concerta can be a pretty heavy drug if you aren't used to taking stimulants. I've been taking them since the second grade. Thanks, I might go and ask my doctor about taking it. I hope I won't need to get a separate diagnosis for ADH...

Ah right, it's the extended release version.

Do you find it helps with concentration? Did you get prescribed it for ADD/ADHD or Aspergers?

I took that, and according to my parents... it made me worse . I take Concerta now, and I have since around 2003 I believe? The only drawback is that I take it's extended release form, and it makes it rather challenging for me to get to sleep at night. :/ I think something like Concerta would be mo...

I was prescribed Ritalin when I was seven. I think that the people I lived with thought that (because I notice everything due to my hearing and would point out everything), I had ADHD. However, I didn't... I did not find Ritalin to be helpful at all.. but again, my real "issue" that they were tryin...

Has any been on ritalin or any other meds to help with memory and concentration? I know its used for treating ADHD in children but can it be prescribed to asperger patients as well?

Whenever I drink coffee or tea on an empty stomache I get really nauseas and have palpitations. Even non decaf coffee affects me.

I suppose it depends on the job. If its something highly technical like computer programming then it might not make that much difference but if you're studying business via online then they might be suspicious why you didn't choose a normal course where you should be developing soft skills and worki...

If its a degree from a recognised university then it is a "real degree" regardless of the way that it's taught. I personally prefer going in and learning, or at least having the option to :lol: I skipped most classes and taught myself when I did my degree.

Sweden do free distance learning uni courses: universityadmissions.se.. There's a full degree course in earth sciences and another in GIS systems you may be interested in. They also do quite a lot of individual modules- probably most if not all from those two courses. You may able to subsititue the ...
