RITALIN® (methylphenidate ciba) sparks energy in the patient with "tired mother syndrome"
She's come to you because she's depressed and tired all the time. She has vague complaints of apathy, listlessness, feeling "blue" --
often symptoms of chronic fatigue and mild depression. Yet, there are no signs of organic disease or serious emotional disorder.
When the signs point to chronic fatigue or mild depression, prescribe Ritalin. This gentle stimulant can help brighten mood and
improve performance... dispel fatigue... restore alertness, enthusiasm, and drive.
