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

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
