Good luck with the ritalin and hang in there. Patience is one of those virtues we don't always have with ADD but it's worth it when it comes to meds. Are you on short acting Ritalin? If so it seems like you're taking it very spread out. I currently am starting on Strattera, it's been about 6 weeks and I'm finally up to 80 mg as of yesterday so I'll be going off the Concerta. Before concerta I took 20 mg every 4 hours approximately depending on what I was doing and if I needed it. If you're on short acting I would definitely encourage you to ask your doctor about the long acting meds. Concerta was a joy for me after having to take meds every four hours and the ups and downs of short acting Ritalin. Strattera should be even better once I get past the side effects. Good luck. Hope this helps you to understand the dosage.
