So i got a script for Ritalin extended release or whatever it is, it's 20 mg, is that a good dose for an adult? What doses are you guys on? How long does the extened release version of ritalin last for you guys? :thankyou:

How long does Ritalin LA/XR last for you guys? It feels like it lasts all day but its up and down kinda.

The time it lasts is different for different people, to some extent.

For the dosage: it doesn't really matter if you're an adult or a child, all that matters is if it helps or it doesn't help. Write notes of what happens, and in your notes, write more about what you do, less about how you feel. You can later take the notes to your doctor "Got a little more done today, and it was easier to talk to people"... or "I don't think anything has changed except I feel worse"... or whatever you notice.

I notice alot of subtle changes, in a positive way.

Does ritalin work taking long term? Or does it poop out one day? I would like to take it as per needed but it just works really well so far (subtle but real good!)

I actually just googled how long ritalin LA was supposed to last and it was hard to discern the correct answer. Both and RX list state that it should be taken once in the morning with a daily maximum of 60mg. This leads me to believe that it works like 12hours? Sort of like vyanse claims to last? Which in my experience is bullcrap. The super long acting drugs never last beyond 8 hours for me. The only other thing that jumped out at me is this weird side effect of possibly having a painful erection lasting more than 4 hours sort of like the viagra warnings so guys-pay attention to your junk!
