Ten days before her daughter's Ritalin prescription expired, Amy Fratz embarked on a hunt for a refill. She had been alerted that the medication might be tough to find. Before she was done, she had called 55 pharmacies in South Jersey. Only one had enough Ritalin for her child, who suffers from mood swings and lack of concentration and self-control without it. Fratz is just one of thousands of parents across the nation who are scrambling to find the medicine, now prescribed for roughly 425,000 children with attention-deficit disorders.

People who suffer the mood swings of manic-depression may be helped by an anti-epilepsy drug. Researchers at the University of Texas say the divalproex sodium is the first effective treatment for manic-depression's "up" side. Manic-depressives suffer mood swings that vary from extreme depression to euphoric elation. The euphoria causes temperamental outbursts, delusions, hypersexuality and insomnia. Led by Dr. Charles Bowden, head of biological psychiatry at the university's Health Science Center in San Antonio, researchers found divalproex sodium helped 48 percent of the manic-depressives who received it during testing.

SAN FRANCISCO HORMONE PATCH TO TREAT MEN Alza Corp., of Palo Alto, Calif., the company that pioneered the development of the $1.4 billion a year transdermal patch business, said yesterday it had received approval from the Food and Drug Administration to begin selling its Testoderm patch to treat men who suffer from a serious deficiency of the male hormone testosterone. Although some may be wondering why the world needs more of a hormone that many associate with male aggressiveness, the Alza patch actually is designed to minimize mood swings among men who suffer from a relatively rare medical condition known as hypogonadism.

Friends and family of Bailey O'Neill gathered Saturday to bid goodbye to the 12-year-old Collingdale resident, who died last week after being placed into a medically induced coma. During an emotional funeral Mass at St. Joseph's Parish in Collingdale, family members described Bailey as sweet and good-natured, a smart boy who loved his family and the Philadelphia Phillies. He had been placed in a coma after his nose was broken in what his parents have called a bullying incident on Jan. 10. Two weeks later -- after experiencing mood swings, memory problems and eventually seizures -- he was put into a medically induced coma at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, and then moved to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

You should hear a pin drop during the Adagietto of the Mahler Fifth Symphony, which was almost the case at the Academy of Music last night when the Philadelphia Orchestra played it under Christoph Eschenbach. You should hear a pin drop because this is music of utter stillness; certainly at the beginning with a handful of violas sustaining the melody, and underneath a harp lappingat its harmonies. This is music so impressionistic and austere, for a moment or two you might think you're in the middle of Debussy, not Gustav Mahler.

Patty Sheehan and Tammie Green are familiar with Helen Alfredsson's emotional demeanor on the golf course, and they say that approach is not necessarily a detriment to Alfredsson's chances of winning the U.S. Women's Open. Sheehan and Green, a pair of relaxed LPGA veterans, held the first two places after yesterday's third round, while Alfredsson slipped from a 5-stroke lead to a 2-shot deficit. "I really don't know that that makes a big difference," said Green, who trails Sheehan by 1 shot.

Loren Lasky was elated about the birth of her baby. She was so happy, that she cried - a lot. "Everything was overwhelming at the time," said the 33-year-old mother as she patted her now-8-month-old son, Andrew Eilbert. "I would be outrageously happy, and two seconds later, I would be crying," said Lasky, who uses her maiden name. Lasky's extreme mood swings are part of a mental state - transitory postpartum depression - that affects more than three-fourths of all new mothers, researcher Ruth York said.

To the Yahoos out in Oregon who've organized the Male Pre-Menstrual Victims Association, we Yo! Hos! here in Philadelphia respectfully say, Phooey on you. According to press reports, dues-paying members of the MPMVA are parading around the Pacific Northwest in T-shirts proclaiming, "If women suffered PMS in silence, there would be no male victims. " Their noble leader, one Charlie Erland, maintains that the mood swings associated with women's menstrual cycles are a real hardship for men. Well, suffer this, Charlie.

AS WE WATCH this year's NFL playoffs unfold, we wonder who among the star players will win a Super Bowl, who will enter the Hall of Fame . . . and who among them will commit suicide before age 50. A grisly question, but a fair one. Last week, the National Institutes of Health revealed that one of the NFL's all-time greats, Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau, suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy - CTE - the degenerative, sometimes-fatal brain...

Brad Mehldau plays jazz piano with the sensibility of a painter. He rarely attacks anything hard, the way some of his brethren do, to demand attention. Instead, he flicks at his melodies, dabbing here and there, brushing the keys to leave the faintest of impressions. His lines scurry and sneak around corners, and when he's finished with one of his long, dream-sequence phrases, it may not be possible to recall every twist in the path, but you know you just visited someplace beautiful.

Bailey O'Neill liked Granny Smith apples, the high dive, and flying kites on the beach. He was excited, he told his mother, to be confirmed later this month at Collingdale's St. Joseph Church. He followed the Flyers and the Phillies and served as best man at his grandfather's wedding. He scored the highest math grade in his class at Darby Township School. In the schoolyard there two months ago, Bailey's nose was broken when he was punched during a fight with two other boys. His parents said he had been the target of bullying, an allegation that has drawn national attention.

With his cunning wisps of dance tunes and church harmonies, Schubert gives even the mildly astute performer an easy way into his music. But Imogen Cooper doesn't have the kind of mind that lends itself to the easy way in, or out. The London pianist, in Wednesday night's all-Schubert recital at the Perelman Theater, introduced an air of struggle and vulnerability that went far beyond the usual highlighting of abrupt mood swings, major-minor ambiguity, and...

Your average Democratic partisan is by nature an anxious soul, prone to wild mood swings, with a range of neuroses reminiscent of Woody Allen. And the current presidential campaign has done nothing to ease those symptoms. Way back in the distant sands of time - say, two weeks ago - the Democratic mood was downright giddy, buoyed by Barack Obama's increasingly robust poll numbers. People started to behave as if Obama had the election in the bag, and denizens of the left-leaning echo chamber began to fantasize about a decisive victory, a replay of 2008.

IT MUST be hard to be a menopausal liberal. How else to explain the collective meltdown being experienced by women of a certain age and political stripe in the waning days of this midterm election? The examples of hormonal angst are too numerous to list, so I'll just focus on a few of the more amusing ones. JOY BEHAR VS. SHARRON ANGLE: A lot of people, not just women, hate the GOP Senate candidate from Nevada. She's been ridiculed as an "Annie Get Your 'Second Amendment Remedies,' " a racist who can't tell chalupas from chow mein and a woman who thinks rape victims should be drinking lemonade.

A glop of rom-com pabulum, Life as We Know It stars Katherine Heigl as Holly, tightly wound Atlanta chef, and Josh Duhamel as Messer, loosey-goosey sports producer. Fixed up by their respective best friends, they abort their blind date three minutes in. Three years later, when they are named foster parents to Sophie, said friends' orphaned infant, Holly and Messer take baby steps toward adulthood. With pratfalls and teardrops, the film swings from sitcom to sit-dram.

DEAR ABBY: I am 13 and have been home-schooled for a few years, but I hate it. My parents recently got a divorce after many years of trying to. Although I was used to the idea of their divorce, I cried when it happened. Mom asked me what was wrong and I told her. Her reply was, "Oh, grow up. You're 13, not 5!" It showed me she doesn't care about my feelings. I don't know why, but sometimes I think I'm the reason behind my parents' split. Also, I have no idea how to tell Mom I want to go to high school next year.

The Composer Is Dead. Actually, he's alive, Nathaniel Stookey is, and clearly relishing the dozens of recent performances of his new work, The Composer Is Dead. The creator of the text, Lemony Snicket, is narrating the aforementioned music. He's not dead, and his real name is not Lemony Snicket. He's Daniel Handler, the tremendously popular author of A Series of Unfortunate Events books, who is doing the piece for Saturday's Philadelphia Orchestra family concert. Still, the composer is dead, and the question eats at you like a Lachrymose Leech: Who killed him?

This morning, President Bush has just over 800 days left in the White House. He still has the nuclear codes, the veto pen, and a pretty good megaphone. But voters slammed the symbolic brakes on his presidency yesterday, guaranteeing a more assertive Congress as they turned the midterm elections into a referendum on Republican rule. When the long-analyzed wave of voter discontent crested yesterday, Democrats seized control of the House, meaning Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California will be the first woman speaker.
