Have you consulted a Psychiatrist? They are more used to prescribing stimulants and are more comfortable using higher doses than most non-psychiatrists.
Your body might be metabolizing Ritalin at a faster rate and you might need more frequent dosing.
However, one also needs to be aware of becoming addicted to stimulants, therefore, the need to use the services of a Psychiatrist.
