Re: 200mg Concerta

Stimulants have different types of effects. The energizing/motivating aspect is probably not ever going to come back (and is not sustainable). The focusing and wakefulness effects are much more resistant to tolerance.

200 mg/day (and even 90 mg/day) are well above average. I'm not saying that you don't need that dose. That decision is between you and your doctor. But your doctor would need to be in on this plan (i.e. not you impulsively deciding to self dose). That would probably entail slowly trying out incrementally higher doses and continually reassessing how you respond.
