Yes, this is dangerous. You are taking about a week's worth of pills inside of a day. It is very easy to get addicted to Ritalin because the withdrawal from it is so unpleasant. Since you have already taken 400 mg., you will probably want to continue to take the pills thus losing sleep and coordination. Do the responsible thing and tell your doctor what you have done. You do not want to have irreversible effects or withdrawal symptoms when you come down. Believe me, I have been there.
