My husband has experienced extreme fatigue since being prescribed steroids to help the swelling for a brain tumor. After eight months of fighting off the urge to sleep, the doctor decided to have him try Ritalin. It is only day two, but finally today, after taking 10 mg., he felt a sense of alertness he hasn't felt in months. However, it only lasted about 3 hours. We are wondering what the "average" dose should be for a 250 lb, 6'6", 59 year o;d man.
The doctor was kind of vague and said to up the amount until we found what works. Help!
