Disinhibiton resulting from frontal lobe damage... hmmm.. sounds kinda
like.... uhm... my tagline maybe? hehehe...
Okay, so has Ritalin/Dexedrine been tried as a treatment for this form of
disinhibiton??? I can definitly say that SSRI's (Zoloft in my case)
increase self-control, but not concentration, for me at least. Why? I
dunno... on Zoloft I don't fly of the handle or get frustrated, but am
perfectly apt to do whatever... it stems impulse reactions but is useless
for long-termish goals. Dexedrine/Ritalin on the other hand, while
controlling anger/whatever, also provide the insight / concentration to
work towards goals that aren't immiadetly reachable.
Only thing is, these drugs aren't fun at all. I've tried taking them all
the time and am kinda displeased.... they make me too adult... stopped
taking the Ritalin ALL THE TIME recently and lemme just say there are a
lot more laughs now!!! Also less side effects... and the prescribed
dosage is low (10mg 3x/day)... still too much rit I guess...
