If someone took 5 5/325 vicodins and about 10 ritalin, (methylphenidate) what would happen to this goofy person?
I don't have add, but is it realy dangerous if I take 5-10 mg of ritalin (methylphenidate) during my exams (for like 2-2.5 months) to increase my attention?
Yes dangerous: No doc on this site is going to tell you it's ok to abuse controlled prescription medication. These drugs have potential side effects including ones involving your heart and nervous system. They also have high abuse potential - today you use it for exams, and pretty soon you are using it just to get up in the morning. Don't go down that path and risk serious side effects and addiction. ...Read more

Can I take ritalin (methylphenidate) 10 mg one in the morning and one at night (7 pm)? Would the night dose be dangerous or cause me problems?
Hard to say: Ritalin (methylphenidate) varies in its effect on people. For some the increase in alertness can make sleep difficult if it is still in your system while some actually sleep better when they take it at bedtime. Every nervous system is somewhat unique and you will need to find how it effects you. At that dose level it will not hurt you to try it that way. ...Read more
How do you notice the benefits of methylphenidate (ritalin ir)? It is my 6th day on 10 mg 2x a day and no benefit! Is it normal? When will I see improveme
The dose it too low: Your dose is too low. Your psychiatrist started as a low dose trial to see how you would tolerate it. The dose will need to be increased. At the age of 17 I would not be surprised if you would need the equivalent of 50 to 60 mg a day. This of course would depend a lot on your body size and how you metabolize the drug. The psychiatrist I am sure will begin raising the dose at the next session. Best wishes. ...Read more
I've been taking 10 mg ritalin (methylphenidate) twice a day for three weeks. I no longer feel the effects. Have I developed a tolerance? Should I ask for ritalin (methylphenidate) xr?
Tolerance OK term: I am glad you use the term tolerance which is a decrease of the effect of the medication over time; the person becomes accustomed to it. It is different from addiction (craving, withdrawal symptoms, chronic compulsive use; and different from physical dependence). A dose of 10 mg of Ritalin (methylphenidate) twice a day is a good therapeutic dose. I do not know why you take it but ask your health provider (nuvigil?). ...Read more
