Re: ritaline: the come down

Probably, if my three hour effective dose of methylphenidate 3x a day is a relevant example... I just start to yawn a lot.Sometimes I get a headache or fatigue. What does your doctor say about dose and timing?

Re: ritaline: the come down

I dislike the term "comedown" because its associated with recreational use of meds. If you mean a rebound of adhd symptoms when it wears off, some people need a booster dose of meds for this reason.

Re: ritaline: the come down

In my experience the comedown really started to be noticeable after 2/3 months of continue treatment. For me it kinds of intensifies along time.

Also I noticed the comedown proportionally related to the daily dosage. When the dose is high = bad comedowns, low doses = no comedown or very little.

In this dosage you are mentioning I don't think you should worry. The only problem is to maintain the dose in the long run because of the tolerance.
