I am a 49 year-old female. I recently started taking Ritalin LA 20 mg. I also have a cerebrovascular disease called Moyamoya. And have noticed that I have shortness of breath. It starts with a tingling feeling in my mouth in my cheeks.
I am a 58 year old male who has taken subutex and suboxone for 7 years on and off. It may seem like a miracle drug until you try to quit it. They have new rehabs just for this type of addiction. I would suggest never taking as much as they prescribe. I can get by on 25%. or 2mg per day when they prescribe 16mg. per day. I prefer subutex, much cheaper if you are buying with a script. Very hard to get. Up to $20.00 per pill on the street. Not enough doctors allowed to write the scripts and they stop your prescription the minute you complete treatment usually sending the addict out for illegal replacements and the circle goes around. Only use for a short period of time or it will be worse than your other habit.
