Please please advise

I've been taking concerta for about 6 months now.

I've taken it only when i had to study or so....basically 4/7 days or less, my dosage was 18 mg.....but i'm taking 36 mg as of late.

This week was really hectic for me and basically i 4 exams within 3 days. In the last 3 days, i've slept very little approximately, 3 hrs of sleep, 2 20 min naps and 1 1 hr nap.

I've taken conerta within 12 hr intervals, that is 1 36 mg per 12 hrs, doing this i've approximately taken 4 in the last 3 days...72 hrs. I've slept in between and slept for 3 hrs....FELT extremely refreshed, this was yesterday, that is 48 hrs after this period began. I've had very slight, sinus like headaches for the past 2 days.

It may just be a sinus because the weather here is suddenly turning cold, but i've never done anything this drastic wasn't like i abused them....which i am so careful not to do strictly maintiaining 12 hr intervals.

But i am worried...can anyone tell me if they've had a similar experience. I'm feeling tired now and am typing this stuff blind almost...but i wanted to ask before i go to bed....i don't want brain damage....i'm feeling fine....but i don't want tscrew up my brain chemistry and make myself dumb.

Any words of advice....other than don't do it again; beleive me i won't. Please tell me more about situations like these and their implications.

Thank you all.

Re: Please please advise

There are no serious implications for what you did, just get some good rest.
