Good evening... 2 quick questions. Seb took his Daytrana (Ritalin) today and I noticed after school that he was talking a mile a minute. It looked vaguely manic to me. He was giving me a long winded explanation about something and was talking so quickly that I could hardly follow his thought process. So my first question is this: Has anyone ever noticed that stimulant medication produces rapid speech / thoughts? I suppose my eyes are extra open as Seb is being eyed for possible BiPolar (BP), and anything that looks like mania concerns me. Question #2 concerns stimulants and loss of appetite. What can be done? Many thanks!
