Hi
I am from Ireland and have been started on a trial dose of Ritalin for the last month roughly with the dosage going up in 10 mg increments currently 30 Mg. I am wondering how high the dose could go. And if the higher the dose the worse for my cardiovascular health ?

No formal diagnosis yet but I suppose I could get one if I pushed.

It seems to help me get things done. I have actually achieved an awful lot which I had been avoiding for years. Its quite eye opening actually.

I have lots of questions. I notice a big lock icon visible on the adult forum. Is that there because my account is new ?

Welcome to ADDF!

The lock you see there just means you can't post directly to that section, because it's a kind of "container" for other sub-sections. However, you should be able to view and post to the sub-sections. If you click on the link to the Adults section, all of the subsections should be listed.

I would suggest posting your specific questions about Ritalin to the Ritalin section, under Treatment & Management > Medications > Ritalin. You may get more/better responses that way.

Again, welcome!

Welcome The big lock means you can't post directly in that particular section but you can post in the subforums in there if you click on the section

Re: New member Checking in

Hey thanks for the welcome
I'll definitely take my concerns to the specific sections in future. I think the initial worry and anticipation about the hype (controlled substance etc ) caused more extra heart beats than the actual meds. (because I've mostly avoided bad influences and have tried to learn my lesson from drinking binges etc so my heart is starting this medication in great shape and I didnt want to wreck that)

Is posting freely based upon a time limit or a number of posts ?
