Unison singing is the most valuable resource available to choral conductors and the most neglected, partly because conductors want to have the mass sound produced by mixed singing groups. The full chorus unison produces a very strong sound, flexible and adapts itself to almost any type of music.

  • Cylert can damage the liver and cause death particularly in the young. Not recommended since deaths are reported. Abbot itself said not to use as a first line medication. Ritalin can be given in doses of 5-20 mgs 2 to 4x q.d. It comes in straight doses of 5, 10, and 15 mgs. There is too a 20 mgs slow release. Ritalin can thus be given as well with a doses of straight release plus 20-40 mgs of slow release. A new form of slow release Ritalin is Concerta . Combines straight release and slow release in a new and very effective delivery system. Concerta comes in 18, 36, and 54 mgs. One can combine if necessary 54+18 mgs to make 72 mgs for example. Last frequently 10-12 hours and there are not the up and downs observed when straight ritalin or dexedrine is given. Metadate CD is another form of extended release methylphenidate. Doses goes from 20 –60 mg. Presentation is 20 mg. First peak about one and a half hours after taken it with another peak at 4.5 hour after which it starts to go down. Thus it last 5-6 hours, rarely more. Dextroamphetamines such as Dextrostat or Dexedrine come in 5 mgs of straight release. Can be given as such in variable doses (according to severity of symptoms) 2x or 3x a day. Dexedrine comes in slow release as well, in doses of 5, 10, 15 mgs. Straight and slow release are combined with effects lasting 8-9 hours, rarely more. Benzedrine a dextro and levo form of amphetamine was used successfully 20 years ago. Was abandoned for the false believe that the levo component made amphetamines addictive. Hence the dextroamphetamines but they are just as addictive, except for people with ADHD. Tricyclics such as Norpramine, Desipramine, Nortriptyline had been used though the latter less so. Dirty drugs with many side effects. Levels need to be monitored, as well as cardiovascular side effects. Some deaths in children reported on tricyclics? Antihipertensives are mostly clonidine (Catapres), guanfacine(Tenex), and some beta blockers (Pindolol) . Catapress dosis is 0.1 mg up to 3x a day. Last dosis at h.s. can be 0.15 mg, but doses must be spaced not less than 6 hours. There is a transdermal patch Catapress TTS(1,2, or 3) programmed to deliver from 0.1-0.3 each day for a week according to size of the patch Guanfacine (Tenex) dosis is 1-3 mg q.d, must be spaced too. Monoamines such as Parnate or Eutonyl though effective are not recommended for obvious reasons, particularly in children or adolescents. Wellbutrin is not nearly as effective as psychostimulants in most cases. Blocks weakly serotonin and norepinephrine uptake. A weak dopamine agonist. Slight noradrenergic and dopaminergic effects. Neuroleptics should very rarely be used if ever. Focalin(Novartis) is dexmethylphenidate HCl . It is on the market now. Tablets are 2.5, 5 and 10 mg. Said to have been given at 3.5 and 5.5 hours interval (twice a day). See no reason to change to it. Atomoxetine (Lilly): New non-stimulant drug, not yet in the market. May be of interest being a non-stimulant perhaps it could be given in late afternoon or early evening.
  • Concerta warns about using this drug if you have glaucoma.
  • If anyone was on MAOI’s a two week period wash out is necessary before starting amphetamines.
