I was diagnosed Narcoleptic about 1 year ago and Neurologist told me to take
Modafinil 300mg/day.

Today, I take 600mg/day and still do not feel good, fall asleep every
morning when going to the office, and I also take 100mg Efexor
(anti-depressant).

Yesterday I met a specialist in sleep disorders who told me to stop the
efexor gradually and also to stop the modafinil. I will be treated with
methylphenidate (ritalin).

What are the side-effects of the amphetamins in general and of the ritalin
in particular ?

Thank you.
