My doctor will only perscribe me 60mg. of ritilian a day , but yet he will perscribe me 60mg. of adderall ir at morning time. Is anyone on 4 20 mg of ritilian a day.
Ritalin and Adderall are two different drugs, while similar and with some of the same properties, are different. Are you being prescribed these two drugs at the same time? I find that very unusual. Ritalin is for AADD, ADHD and the like. I would think even 60 mgs is a high dosage, but I don't know your particular case, ie. age, student or working, other psychiatric conditions. I, personally have taken both meds at one time or another. Amphetamine salts are in Adderall and help people with focus issues, not thinking at the speed of light, enabling the individual to think a problem through to the end. Methylphenidate or Ritalin does the same things without the somatic (body) sife effects such as racing heart race, palpitations, etc.
Strange but true, Adderall makes me sleepy. So after I take a nap, I can focus on the task at hand and finish things, instead of having 15 unfinished projects at a time. I also can remember why I went to a particular room. Geez.
I prefer Ritalin, andI was taking 10 mgs a day. And I build up a tolerance to any medication quickly. I wasn't sleepy, could finish tasks in a timely manner andcould remember why I went into a room without standing there for 10 minutes trying to guess what I needed.
At this point, my best advice is to ask the prescribing physican WHY and I hope you are getting all of you meds from the same doc, as to do otherwise is illegal.
I hope I was some help to you, those are high doses of drugs for both of them, and I have a feeling something else is going on here other than your inability to concentrate and complete tasks.
Wishing you the best at figuring this all out,
