Some drugs can have this effect on people, though usually not Ritalin. I suspect its probably not that your doctor doesn't believe you, but that he has not met this particular problem before and does't understand how what you are describing could occur. A psychiatrist or neurologist might be best placed to assess what;s really going on, and to recommend how best to deal with it
