Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I am sorry you are having these symptoms.

ritalin is a stimulant and is used to treat patients who have attention deficit disorder.

ritalin is not known to cause depression symptoms commonly

but patients who have attention deficit disorder can commonly have depression

if you are having depression symptoms, you should talk to your doctor about that

there are treatments for depression symptoms which could help

let me know if you have questions.

not ritalin

ranitidin

sorry about that

ranitidine is also called zantac and is an antihistamine used to help decrease stomach acid.

this would not cause depression symptoms.

I am very sensitive to medication.. i have been taking it 6 days and i have have a general feeling of being unwell.. very tired.. dizzy.. and now hopelessly depressed...

it can cause some fatigue and some dizziness in some patients

if it makes you feel poorly, you can stop it

and use another stomach acid reducing medication like maalox or mylanta or tums or another antacid to help decrease stomach acid.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
