I'm sorry you're feeling so terrible. Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds as if you went from 40mg extended release Ritalin to 10mg regular Ritalin in one fell swoop. That is way to fast to discontinue a drug. A good plan would be something like this

40mg ER to
10 t.i.d. IR for 1 week
10, 10, 5 for 1 week
10, 5, 5 for 1 week
5, 5, 5 for 1 week
5, 5 for 1 week
5 for 1 week
0

The intervals between dosage changes could be shorter or longer depending on how you're doing.

So get back on a reasonable dose of ritalin and taper slowly. You don't have to go through a hellish withdrawal.

Post again and let us know how you are doing.

Feel Better,

Britt
