What's the average dose of Ritalin???

I was all the way up to 160 mg a day. I had to take 80mg or so just to get going in the am. Stuff worked great for 6 months.

Good energy. clarity and focus.

Then it just stopped workin?? My Doc says yep happens all the time.

Switched to dexamphetamine and I couldn't stand it. Awful.

So I started on Concerta. Worked great for about 2 days now nothing.

I told the doc I would give it a month. Time's up. Still no benefit.

SO I'm thinking about going back on the Ritalin. I know they are the same drug. I think the mechanism of the concerta just doesn't work for me.

ANy feedback on Ritalin doses would be appreciated...
